I bought the company in November of this last year and done a lot of field testing and trial and error. I caught 102 beaver this past season along with several otter and I am very happy with the way they preform. I mostly used the 440 RBG (12") and the 280 RBG (8"). I have also built a H style stabilizer that works with these traps. I will be at the FTA and NTA national shows as well as several state shows this fall if you want to see them in person. You can also call me at the shop @ (812)536-3044.

I met him today at the FTA. Good guy from Indiana. I'm still not quite sure how I'll stabilize them, as I haven't tested them yet, but I bought the 160 and 330 RBG today. They seem intriguing.

I have used the 160s from just about the day they came out. Great traps and I feel they work a lot better In trails then the square BGs. That round shape just Is more natural.

All I ever used were the standard 160 H stands. So what If the cross bar sticks up In the opening a bit.
The only down side is having to chase the springs around to get them set.

I used my big one yesterday on this 48lbs male beaver
He avoided square 330 2 days in a row then I set the round one and got him

I like them


Every day is a gift from GOD, don't waste it!!

If they have plenty of food, give them something interesting to smell

Happy they are working for you guys. When i first started using them a few years ago I knew they had there place on my line and have not let me down. Now that i own the business and have to do EXTENSIVE field testing(that's what I tell my wife) I believe that the circle shape helps catch a higher percentage of square shy animals. I also have done a fair amount of research and have come to the conclusion that a round trap closes faster because of the radius and force of the spring. I has suspected this for a while because of the way the animal is found in the trap, but was confirmed when I had a conversation this spring with a very experienced trap maker. I am striving to produce a quality product and provide great service and thank all of you for the support.

As far as stabilizing I have built H stands for these traps and are offering them for sale and I also found out this morning that another stabilizer manufacturer is going to start build a stabilizer for them. It is still in the design faze but hopefully will be available by fall. I will keep everyone posted on how they are progressing.

Will you have these round bodygrips certified under the International trapping standards to make them legal to use in Canada?
