Ok I'm curious what's everybody's favorite trap and for what critter? New to trapping only 3 years into it and love bridger traps.

I like the duke number 3, use it for lynx, have been using duke number 2s the first few years. Gotten some number fours, found them to be a little too much trap, use them when the snow falls and covers them, I set the 2s on poles and in places where the snow don't pile up from wind. Use number three with cubbies and trail sets. I like the 280 bgs for wolverine, have gotten a couple lynx in them. I have started using snare pens last year and really like them, saw them on the wild north that andrew uses. Use 3/32 snare wire with sure locks, was thinking of getting some cam locks and trying them out. Haven't started setting snares until this weekend, snow had to fall after I set them. probably will have to dig out the snow to make them opperable again. I will probably try getting bridgers when i have more moneys to buy them. I like the way the traps look.

Did a line check today and ended up with a mighty ermine in a number one. Some fox sign, some lynx sign out there. No wolf/marten sign. Had a miss on a hanging bait. Bait gone, and trap snapped. Tomorrow i guess i'll go cut portage all day and try get this new loop put in out the cabin. I'll add a few traps out there as far as i went. Hoping to get over this ridgline that is super thick. Gonna ba a long day tomorrow.

Bridger 5'S , dukie's 4'S, MB 750W, Vic #1's, 110's, 330's, 14 victor's, odds and ends #3's and 4's for the cat sets. I tend to go bigger in my hanging bait sets in case a gulo visits. A majority of my sets are hanging baits. 1/8th Snares for Wolves. In no particular order.

You know my 2 cents for a trapper just starting out and who wants the biggest bang for his or her buck with traps is to buy used.
I have been amazed at the money I have saved on buying used traps compared to new. They all catch fur. Some better than others. Bottom line is the more traps you have out there the more fur you bring home. I would rather have a few swing and misses with 200 sets than none with 3 doz.

Cats -Bridger #3 for the price. But I have some #3 victor that are decked out that are very nice. To pricy to buy new.
Marten. Conibears I am a 110 duke fan for my pots. Foot traps. Old Blake and Lamb #1 I picked up a duke #0 the other day and was amazed at how weak the spring was compared to traps I have that are 30 years old. I don't have any #0 actually to compare but felt that if I did the duke #0 would be on the weak side.

Beaver 330 any style will do as I trap under water. Bridger, duke. I like to get as many traps as I can for the price.
Otter 330 any style. Duke, Bridger are fine if under water.

Everyone has to buy and run what they are comfortable with. For me I had an objective and stuck with that. It seemed to work out okay.

#4 coilspring for cats, I use mostly dukes, and have held wolverine in one with only a half paw catch. I use #5 bridgers though in what I figure to be the higher gulo possible zones. Have some MB-750's I am trying for wolves, and I am not sure I like them for that application. They are a good tough trap-but they seem to come through the snow a little slow.

Well my turn, I use duke 220 for otter when I can find them, and my favorite #3 bridger os cs for lynx and been trying but no luck yet haven't struck with em bridger #1 long spring for marten. Them little guys must run all over. The #1 look like a burly trap, but I havent seen really any other #1 traps. I am with FT I do need more steel to lay out.

Used to fish salmon out of Sand Pt. Len. Have not been there in quite a few years.

Finally made it up into the area I usually trap yesterday just a few days before lynx season closes. Lots of sign just have to get them next year. The ice was never safe to travel until a few days ago since it has been so warm this year. Did find this nice set of sheds right after I saw the old owner. Always find a few antlers up in here. I hope to turn these into a new GPS.

Boy! I don't know if I could deal with a Partner that may be more frugal (That's "Cheap" for the vocabulary challenged) than me. wink
