With a 30 in !/2 inch rebar,you shouldn't have a problem.Pumping of rebar stakes comes from the swivel sliding down the rebar allowing a better pull for the coyote.Kinda like pulling a fence post.When your out of reach,you slide the chain down to get another hold.Same thing when the swivel slides down the rebar. I have quite a few rebar stakes and they're all 30 inchers,but most of the time I use cable stakes made of conduit.
I use 24" and never come close to a pull/pump out. That cross staking removes all doubt. I pack 18" for smaller traps and conis and two of them cross staked is good. I use cable stakes too but you have to carry around a driver. I always lose my driver and find it at the last set I did.
Agreed BigJohn that cable stakes are lighter to carry. Me and Mofo had this discussion. I can drive up to most of my sets (although I walk to check them) I got a few dozen cables in case I have to hike. Everytime I see a post on disposable cable stakes, I have to stress the importance of keeping track of them and never allow one to be abandoned for the landowner to hit with his sickle mower. Your name will be Mud.
If I cant pull a stake then I tag it and come back later with a bumper jack. I have had cable stakes that made my 4-wheeler stand straight up and broke a ferrule on the stake.
Yup,pretty common with cable stakes.That is one of the reasons I usually just dig down aways and cut them off.As cheap as it is to make them,I'm not going to risk losing an animal because I strained the cable or ferrules.I did read somewhere though,where a guy used a cordless drill and his dirthole auger and drilled next to the cable to make for easier removal.
