What are some of your favorite user traps that arenít made anymore?
Not necessarily collectibles but you would love to be able to go buy a new dozen to use out on the line?

KB 5.5ís would top my list, followed by the olí Montana #3 Special!!! If I run any of these that I have- I ALWAYS make sure they are in areas with a low probability of theft!

A couple certain models of the original montys.

Sooo many good models today if starting over I'd have a fortune tied up testing for "best".

Most of the BMI traps. At least I think there not being made, haven't been able to order any in over 2 + years.

I think we're all going to be saying the same thing about Victor before long

Iím thinking my favorite trap the Victor Montgomery #3ís are a thing of the past. I can no longer get a hold of the company for parts anymore and it seems what ever suppliers have left in stock is it. Maybe I am wrong, I am hoping so.

Pretty much any size of Northwoods. All I bought when I was in school years ago and still have them all plus a few more.

Montgomery Trap Company traps - 220 size BGs (yes they made some copied after the V 220 right before they closed up shop, Not the 600 model!). ......... Newhouse traps - old cast jaw #1 LS's. I miss these as The Montgomerys were tough spring strength and inexpensive (still have 40 or so) and I never lost a water critter in the little Newhouse (still have 13 collectors and 3-4 users). Plus all the memories when fur was a sought after item. ........... the mike

This and any of the Newhouses. Newhouse was a better trap IMO, but if I was setting out a beaver line setting a bunch of traps in a day, I would rather be setting B & L, they were easier to set.
