I'm looking for a bag that is multi use. As of right now, I use a 5 gallon bucket with a bucket organizer but it gets a little much to haul around sometimes and takes up a lot of room in the sled or takes up a hand going to the set. I was looking at the Montana Trappers Bags since they're easily washed and seem to be of good construction. Does anyone have recommendations? Going to be used for anything from water trapping to coyote trapping. Thanks in advance!

I don't have a pic anymore, but I used to use a homemade packbasket made out of an old trashcan and some straps from an old backpack. It was very comfortable and held everything I needed, and cost all of about $1.50 in nuts and carriage bolts from the hardware store to bolt the straps on. If you're already using a 5 gallon bucket and organizer, I'd bet you can rig up some straps to turn it into a packbasket pretty easily.

I have the Weiser beaver bag. It appears to be the Montana bag with an additional set of pouches for 4oz lure jars.


Theyíre not cheap, but it would be one of the first purchases Iíd make if I were gearing up for serious trapping. It was exceptionally durable for me. It withstood 5 years of pretty regular, year around use where it was either with me or in the bag of my truck before the first signs of wear and tear started showing up. The only real wear that eventually showed up was a few threads opening up, something easily fixed with heavy thread and a leather sewing needle. The beaver bag easily holds (4) 330s with metal stabilizers, setters, pliers, wire, and lure. The top is open with 2 loop handles. I close those loops by clipping a large carabiner clip that is also holding a bunch of coiled snares and/or extensions. When I needed more, Iíd just clip a Second-loaded carabiner onto the first.


On the way out, yes, you can pack out beavers in the bag. However, I usually only carried one or two large beavers at a time and carried the rest by hand or dragged out. I never planned on climbing wet, steep banks with more than 1 beaver on my back at a time anyway.



Iíve used buckets and tool pouches for land trapping in the past, but those beaver bags can haul as much steel as a person really wants to carry on their back as long as they pack their equipment in such a way that it doesnít tangle up.


Montana bags are worth the investment imo if youíre looking for that sort of thing. It was worth it to me when I needed it.

Is the Montana beaver bag about the same size as the weiser? Also where can I find the weiser?

I second the Weiser beaver bag. Toted a lot of 330,s and beaver in it. It finally gave up last year. I ordered another from Montana when it did. Tough, durable and more comfortable than a basket

I like the lure pockets on front but I can't find anywhere to order the bag from.

Looks to be the same size. Iím not even sure where exactly I ordered mine when I bought it. I just now googled weiser beaver bag and there was 1 in stock on the first website listed, so they seem to still be available.


The durability of the material for what itís intended use is, 20Ē deep pouch, and comfortable shoulder staps are all must haves as far as Iím concerned and it tells me that whoever designed it knew what it needed to be. The drain hole is a nice feature too. I also carry a T handled stainless wolf fang driver by putting it handle down and passing the end through a loop to keep it in place. Fact of the matter is itís the easiest and most comfortable way for me to carry the maximum amount of weight/equipment. If it held more volume or weight, it wouldnít matter because I wouldnít want to carry more than that. You could fit dozens of footholds rigged with earth anchors.

I use a tool backpack from Home Depot. Has a rubber bottom, heavy zippers, and plenty of pockets and pouches for tools and lure. I can fit 5-7 traps (depending on the size), a few drags, all my lure, cables, wire, and any tools I need to adjust traps.


If traps work like the Antis say......I would have no fingers.

Ask John if you want the Weiser bag, he makes it also, so he can probably sell you one if that is what you want instead of his Montana bag.

Well after reading all of your guy's comments, looking at other sources, and talking to a few other guys. I decided on the Weiser beaver bag just because of the lure pockets up front with the buckle to hold the flap down. Thanks for all the comments and recommendations!
