Just thought i give you guys something to read. I picked up 3 duke #4s that are center swiveled, 4 coiled, the jaws are laminated, and have posi pans installed for 20 bucks. Put them with my bridger #3s and one 330 and i got my 10 beaver trap setup.

I've always said there's nothing like handling large traps to make a guy feel like a real trapper. I liken it to the old beaver trade with grizzled mountain men setting traps in icy streams while keeping an eye peeled for Indians.

I trap mink because I don't know any better

Good Job! I think maybe a little later this year there may be some good buys on traps!

Re: Random Posting

Sounds like a nicely setup trap for 5$!!!


Old mink, you nailed it...don't know why but when I think of a trapper that's exactly what I see. A big ole DLS on the edge of a frosty beaver swamp...nice ole pack basket..and like you said..just in tune with nature and his surroundings...aka watching for Indians...

Re: Random Posting

They won't hurt nearly as bad as a #1.5 duke. Big traps are more of a thud than a sharp snap.
