Very cool! Welcome to T-man! Are you fur trapping or trapping for damage control?

Welcome... It is nice to others around the world that pursue the same interests we do. Great video... very clear and none of that noisy loud music in background so many of them in this county have. When I watch a video I watch to learn something not to come to dance.

Beaver meat is used for food. I make skins for fur.
I cook beaver in the forest on a fire.

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?

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.

Well done.If you rub the fur with loose snow it will dry it off.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.
