jaw lam report

I took the time this summer to 3/16 square stock lams to a bunch of my 1.75 dukes. the stock traps were a little harder on grey fox feet than i like. while i'm not setting the world on fire catching critters this year, 2 of the greys i got were in traps that i had lams on and what a difference. when i was hanging it to skin i was looking the feet over and couldn't tell which foot i caught it with.
all my 1.75 and #3 will have them by next year. if i get another i will try to remember to take a pic.

Now your diggin' where the 'tators are!

Re: jaw lam report

Big fan myself for similar reasons. I turned all my offset #2 Bridgers into 1/2" laminated regular jaws with flat stock. Works very well.

Re: jaw lam report

Some told me that the wide jaw face wouldn't allow for enough pressure to hold marginal cathches (toe catches). This pretty little girl disagrees:

Re: jaw lam report

if it weren't for the darn yotes i would just run 1.5s. the lams help alot but haven't come up with a way to keep the coons fron getting underneath if you know what i mean.
i did a couple 1.5s up with chew gaurds. hope to see if they work in the morning.

Re: jaw lam report

Way to promote animal friendly traps!! That type of thinking will take trapping way into the future. BMP is determining it is hard to beat a good laminated trap. Better than ruber jaws. Animal
