Anyone do any bear trapping?  Very Happy 
Here is a bear trap that I have and thought you all might be interested in seeing pictures of it.

Here it is beside a #1 1/2 coil spring trap.

I enjoy old traps and the history of trapping, hunting, and pioneer life.  This trap would look great hanging above the mantle of a fireplace.  
Think what it would have been like in the old days to lug this through the wilderness in search of bear sign.
According to my postal scales this trap weighs 19lbs 7.8oz.  I think it would get heavier than that if I had to carry it through the woods very far.
Sorta like a small deer that you shoot and then have to drag.  When you first sot it it was only about 100 lbs but by the time you got it to the truck it weighs 250 lbs or more.  Very Happy 

Glad I don't have to carry it but it sure is enjoyable to look at and show to others.

yup, that's a big bear trap! Pretty neat to see how little they've changed.

Proverbs 28:19  He who works his land will have abundant food...

Genesis 1:29  Then God said,"I give you every seed bearing plant on the face of the whole earth, and every tree that has fruit with seed in it..."
