Re: Bridger #4 DLS

not sure of the jaw spread on them ,but i use the sleepy creek #4 dls and love them . they bed lots better in the mud than a coilspring . just check the jaw spread as i also use some bridger # 3 coils for beaver and they are close to the maximum limit

5 5/8th inside, 6 outside. Plenty under the limit.

I trap mink because I don't know any better

I used coils this year Bridget 3 they are as big as you can get in pa. I hear a lot of guys love the long springs for beaver. What is the benefit
