Glove recommendations for a new trapper - what type of gloves to set in and what type to bait in . -I recently retired taking up wolf, coyote and bobcat trapping and Im trying to prepare for upcoming season --Im starting with Duke 850s, 650s, and modified ts 85s. I will have to find some smaller traps for bobcat because I live in a Lynx protection zone which requires 5 3/8 or smaller traps . I live in the PNW and we have mostly thaw freeze cycles more so than extended cold. yotes are open yearlong. may take some spring yotes to help fawn crop. any advice welcomed .
thanks in advance for sharing your valuable knowledge. I acknowledge its value and greatly appreciate it !

State laws apply to dispatch and it’s normally not discussed on an open forum. Our law (GA) states animals must be dispatched by .22cal.

As far as gloves, up to you. I only wear them to protect my “model” looking hands. I don’t wear any to bait. I wear the thinner deer skin leather gloves. They’re tight fitting and I can feel with them. I have latex gloves and might put them on if dealing with any “skunky” lure or bait.

its about 7 hours from here but I could go see my daughter in Elko -its kinda on the way ; the AK wolf trap manual says keep and use several pair of cotton gloves to set with and keep changing them out and a different pair for bait-lure and yet another pair for driving .

I buy these things wholesale.

There’s also thinner ones for hot weather, and heavier ones for cold weather (the brown Kinco Frost Breakers being my personal favorite).

Cheap enough when they get dirty you can just toss em or down grade em to bait/utility gloves.

Do you hunt? If so where do you aim to put things down quickly? Same for every animal in a trap except I use a .22. Except maybe hogs.

I used to use two different pair of gloves, one for setting and one for baiting. That probably works for people that are not as forgetful as me. I graduated to nitrile on my hands and cotton over the nitrile. The cotton gloves are a pain ( to loose) until they’ve been washed and shrink up a little. The last couple years I’ve been setting bare handed or leather gloves and then putting a single nitrile glove to bait with, it helps keep the stink out of my truck .

I've went to using the 7 mil latex gloves from Harbor Freight for setting and once I think they are dirty or contaminated I switch them to bait/lure gloves and grab a new pair for setting. Cheap, disposable, waterproof, and they hold up good. They also fit like another skin so it is almost like setting barehanded. I hate trying to do fine work with gloves on so those are what I've settled on. Tried the 5 mil ones but I couldn't hardly get a set made without having them ripped. Not good in warm weather because your hands will sweat and once you take them off you won't hardly be able to put them back on, but in the winter they work good. I never cared for cotton/cloth gloves because they always get wet quickly and once they are wet I feel like the human scent goes through them with the water and defeats the purpose of them. I used ones like Boone recommends quite a bit, but I always end up with them soaking wet and never seem to have enough spares with me. I just take a box of the rubber gloves and put them in a gallon ziploc bag and have lots of spares with me.

I use a 22 or 22 mag and am very satisfied. Generally prefer the 22 because it is much quieter in a pistol but have been using a 22 mag this year because I have a pistol I bought some years ago because it was a good deal and it hadn't did anything but sit in the safe since I bought it and this fall I decided I should use it for something so I took it out and have packed it all winter. We won't go into dispatch methods farther because it is discouraged on the forums, but I was told that Montana requires you to shoot wolves for dispatch. I don't know if that is actually true, but it is what one Montana trapper told me.
