Conibear/Beaver Trap/Otter 330 BT - OTTER CONTROL
Product# 330 BT
Price: US $0.00
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: 10" x 10" square heavy steel trap which has
two springs for strong setting. The springs are in the shape
of a "V" and when set, compress the tops of the "V" together.
There is a safety latch on each "V" so that once compressed,
you can latch it for holding it set. Once both "V"'s are
compressed, you set the key into the groove of the trigger.
Now, place the trap where you want to make the set. Once in
place, the safety latches are released and the Conibear is
now ready to work. Because of the strength required to compress
these "V" springs, it is strongly suggested that you get a
set of Setters. These will enable you to compress the springs
with a lot of leverage and make working with 330's much easier.
TARGET ANIMALS: Although this trap has been used
for many animals over the years, it is still primarily used as
a beaver trap. As the largest available, use it for big beaver.
280's and 220's may work as well, but the 330 is what you need
when dealing with large animals.
WHERE TO USE IT: Conibear traps can be set many different
ways. These include den sets, mound sets, run sets and feeding
station sets. All are detailed in either beaver book listed
in our article.
RATE OF APPLICATION: This will vary from job to job.
Generally, the more traps employed, the quicker you catch your
target animals. Although you can start with only one, it is
suggested that you use 2-3 where you can.
