Well, it isn't all daring... Oftentimes, it's just that he got out the first time, he figures that he'll get out the second time - I guess that could be "daring" too. Food is a great attractant for squirrels, and the one-door set will often catch the squirrels with long tails that can interfere with door closings. The next trick is to set the trap with NO bait - make him LOOK for it!
As far as the 1030 vs the 1040, the difference is the length. The 1040 being about 6 inches longer than the 1030. But as long as you're having success with the 1030, keep on keepin' on! If you ever need to replace it, get the 1040. And yes, the 1040 would be good for rabbits too. In fact, it's labeled as a "rabbit trap."
And thanks for the compliment!
