duke #4 4 coil

can't seem to find a definite answer on the inside spread of these. some places I saw 6.5" and others i saw 6 3/16" and a few 6 9/16". So my question is are they even legal in pa? I know 6.5 is the legal inside limit for pa. Thanks for all your help.

Re: duke #4

Reason I am asking is a local guy is selling a small lot for a descent price and wondered if they would be worth getting for coyote.

Re: duke #4

Are you kidding Fly, the ones I OWN are legal, just under 6 1/2 on the outside same as Bridger #3's. They make a great coyote/beaver trap.

Re: duke #4

they are LEGAL FOR PA...and flyguy i run duke #4's for yotes and fox and they are easier on the domestics legs than your #2 regular jawed traps....ive proven it time and time again....

i run all factory offsets for coyotes and that wider jaw face is very very kind if you debur it...

and FLYGUY you need to be more specific with your answers...a #2 duke and victor is not in the same category as a #2 bridger because of the jaw style on each trap....

Re: duke #4

I run ZDuke #4 4 coiled up north for cats and coyotes and yes they are 100% LEGAL and not to big! Great coyote , cat and beaver traps. A few things I did to mine was add a extra swivel and do inside laminations. And buy extra dogs... Coyotes love to eat them. The 4 coil is great for busting up through any frozen crust or snow.

Honesty is my only excuse.
