Leg Hold Traps

Leg Hold Traps

Description:

This is a batch of traps. There are ten size 2's and 1 size " 3". One is a "stop loss". When a muskrat, mink or water animal would chew its leg off, the "stop loss" trap had a secondary bar which would still hold the animal. The traps are rusted but most are still useable . a) Three size 2 traps with teeth. b) Six size 2 traps without teeth, c) one size 2 with stop loss feature, d) One size 3. History: when Bob Menzel took over John Arn's trap line he acquired these and other traps. Arn's line ran up Railroad Pass (now referred to as "the Hurley') and into the Bridge River. Menzel used these traps but no longer uses the leg hold style. [Update 2013 from Bob Menzel]: The Menzel trap line included Both Arn's and Henry Erickson's trap line. The trap lines included Hurley and Upper Valley - John Arn worked Headquarter Creek and Cristi Creek (now Hilliby). Over the Hurley was worked by Andy Anderson and Henry Erickson. The treadle plates have a "V" which stands for "Victor" brand which was a common type of Trap. Item C may be a Newhouse brand which Bob says was a better trap.

Bear Trap

Bear Trap

Description:

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. [update 2013]: Bob Menzel believes the type of trap to be "Newhouse" brand based on the hinges (Aug 2013).
