Made in the early 70s by Big Bear Trap Company (aka Wilderness Corporation) out of New Jersey. Company was in business for less than 10 years.

The made 2 sizes of body traps and a bit later 2 sizes of coil spring traps (Papa Bear and Baby Bear).

The first body trap models were a 6 sided trap. Rather flimsy metal. After the first 2 years they switched to your standard square jaw body trap. The 110 size trap was a single spring. The slightly larger size was a double spring.

If they are the first models (6 sided) and are in pristine condition, they will have slight collector value. If they are the square jaw or are in used condition, then they are just user traps and not very good ones at that.
