I had my trap house get broke into last month in the Fairbanks area. They stole a lot of decent traps that Iím hoping come up for sale eventually. I donít have FB or marketplace to watch but was hoping someone might try to sell the whole lot.

4)Bridger #5 Alaskan coil springs
12) belisle 330s

Hopefully someone puts them to good use if I canít

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

Dang it! I had a wolf trap stolen last week, which really bites. I've had a number stolen over the years, but always individually out in the woods, never lost the whole lot at once like you.

Best of luck to finding them and the weasel who stole them.

The heroin addicts probably sold them for scrap iron, maybe got ten bucks for the whole lot.

Someone must have known that there were traps in your storage place!


I love the smell of burning spruce---I love the sound of a spring time goose---I love the feel of 40 below---from my trapline I will never go!

Dang I am sorry that happened to you. I will keep an eye out on marketplace etc. Those wolf traps will be easy to spot since they never come up for sale.

Shoot I might need to buy some just to stay in the game this season.

All my traps were much better shape with homemade rebar drags.
