Body gripping traps (also known as Conibear traps) are some of the most devastating traps you’ll ever set. Think of these as giant rat traps, without the wooden board attached to them. These can be set in a remarkable variety of ways, including horizontally and vertically or on land and underwater. Many sizes are available, from small single spring traps to huge double spring traps that are downright frightening to set. Use great caution, and you’ll be able to set these traps safely. Use them wisely, and you’ll put your target animal out of commission quickly and effectively. These traps can last for decades and are a great item to stock at remote cabins or bug out sites. Here’s how to set one.
