I have purchased a few old traps in the New England area over the years. This trap looks like some sort of early conibear design. Anyone know what this is? It also has an old trap tag with a name from Concord NH. Could I post the name to see if anyone knows the trapper or is this not ethical on a website?

Bigalow I believe. The guys on the trap collectors forum will help you out.

Bigelow. Came in 6 or 7 different sizes, based on diameter of the circle.

Bigslo for sure.


Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Bigelow.I don't know when they came out but I know the furbuyer we sold to in the mid 70's swore by them for beaver

Bigalow, made for a short time in the 60ís and 70ís. There are some still around new in the box. I think they were made in Ohio.
