Very interesting Kosoi. Thanks for sharing the link!
I like the Canadian Belisle body-grip traps. They close completely sometimes catching animals you would have missed.

One question for Kosoi and/or your compatriots, do you use trap setting devices for your big body-grip traps? Many American and Canadian trappers do. Although some of us do not. It only takes me seconds to set a 330 by hand so no reason for a setter.

Tatiana! You're not the same Tatiana that lived in Portland Oregon and was a member here?

Interesting trigger designs and interesting discussion. Thanks for the link Kosoi.

The trigger mechanism on our north American traps are similar to the konyberovskaya style that we refer to as two way triggers. But some have very small modifications that make the four way triggers like your twisted wire styles.

That's right, the traps of Kirov. I publish a video of the beginning of the beaver hunting season.

I second that, plus as I wrote (my previous message seems to have disappeared?), Russian-made bodygrips, of all three major brands that we have here, have relatively weak springs so setters are redundant (I can only compare to Bridgers, which are more or less available here... I wouldn't want to catch my thumb in one of those!).

Tatiana, your english is so good I must ask: Where did you learn it?

And Lowkly, thank you for sharing your meal of beaver in the forest with us. One small piece of advice from your fellow trapper....bring your wife some flowers and she will let you eat at home again! laugh

why are you covering stabilizing sticks with mud and at one point also where you tied off the chain you covered with mud?

To disguise the trap. Repel the smell.

I have never found that to be necessary with beaver in my 45 years trapping them.

45 years is worthy of respect.
The main thing is to hide the trap from thieves. Traps were stolen from me. Very bad.

^^^ I can respect that thinking Lowkly. Over the years I have lost more traps to thieves than I care to remember.
