Beaver meat is used for food. I make skins for fur.

I think he wants to know what the brand names are for the traps you're using, such as Bridger, Victor, Sleepy Creek, or perhaps a Russian made body grip?

I answer with the help of an interpreter. Thanks for the clarification.
The traps are made in Russia, they cost less than a Bridger. Our hunters really praise Bridger. I myself used only Russian traps.

Well this is very interesting! The first trap looks like the old tree traps we used to have here in the U.S.A. I think for a time span of around 1900-1950 ? I forget their proper name . You guys in Russia also have the lengthen conibers ! We call those 660's. I will say though, your conibears seem to have a different trigger then ours ,but other then that not very different at all

I think I can also see a KP-320 in our compatriot's video (the numbers in the model names in this series correspond to jaw size in millimeters, so a KP-320 is bigger than a Bridger 330). The springs are weaker than in North American models, however. Even I can set such traps (KP-250, 320, 420, etc) without any need for setters, and I'm a small woman.

P.S. editing to clarify what I intended to say, but failed to convey properly: there are at least three companies that make bodygrip-type traps here, the most popular probably being the Kirov traps, followed by SUAS traps (the latter have bulkier and less convenient triggers, but it's a matter of personal preference). There are also TONAR bodygrip traps, made in Barnaul, but they have been a disappointment, although their smaller legholds (#0 and #1 longsprings) are a staple here.

That twisted wire trigger sure is different from our north American triggers. Our triggers operate on the outside of the trap jaw. The Russian trigger works on the inside of the jaw. Hard to tell by just looking at images but it looks like it could be difficult to keep it adjusted.

Does the trigger wire get bent a lot after making a catch. I am sure the long arms of the trigger get bent some. Does the twisted part close to the trap jaw get bent and require constant adjustment?
