The bear trap is in fairly good shape with average signs of wear; some degree of rust is present on the center piece (by which the bear sets the trap off when he steps on it). There looks to be an old maker's name of some sort. Arvin Starks & George Bikadi found it in the McKenzie Basin in 1957 while hunting. Believed to have belonged to Oscar Johnson.
