Trap Question

Looking for some advice..I caught a ground hog in a Connibear trap a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, it was @ my camp and I wasn't there for 6 days. The hog got a little ripe and I was not able to get it out of the trap without having some difficulty holding down my lunch..I had a big fire going outside & decided to throw the critter & trap into the flames. Twenty mins later the hog was gone but when the trap cooled the spring tension was gone as well ..any way to heat it or whatever and get the "temper" back ??

Re: Trap Question

If u know who made the trap ya might be able to get replacement springs. Not sure about fixing the the weak ones.

Re: Trap Question

First thing WHY would you leave a trap set that long if you could not check it?

It's junk. Don't do that again. Big time illegal!

Re: Trap Question

I think that made your trap better. Actually, burn the rest of your traps so they are just like it....

Nothing like posting your illegal activities on HuntingPA...

Re: Trap Question

Probably set over a den entrance as well? Another illegal maneuver. I'm glad you tossed that trap in the fire.
