I am looking to add to my trap arsinal this summer and need advise on beaver traps. I am looking at bridger #2 4 coiled, if i remember correctly the trap must be 6" jaw spread or under. Anyone have another suggestion. I am only going to be beaver trapping a couple days as i have to travel to trap them. I plan on taking a long weekend like 4 days to trap them and maybe only getting to go once. i dont want to spend a ton of money on beaver traps. but i want to get a bigger traps than the MB550 we trapped them with this year. we almost lost the one beaver we trapped as the jaws didnt get above the back foot pad and pulled all the way down to the toes. Also i know it sounds like a big trap but could i use the bridger #2 for fox on dirthole sets also. I dont think i would 4 coil the trap for a fox set.
sleepy creek # 3 double long spring. and with the bridgers go with the # 3 and why would you need 4 coils. if you are running a slide wire dead is dead. i mainly use snares, light, cheap, and easy to set.
