Subject: Stolen Traps
Bill Larry (452-3455 or 452-6389) from Alaska Fun Center reported that he has had 75-80 of his marten and lynx traps stolen from his line trail to Koole Lake over in North Eastern 20A. He believes the traps must have been taken after season end between March and May last spring when there was still snowmachine and sled access across the Tanana and down his trail.
His traps were primarily 1 & 1.5 longsprings with a half dozen #4 longsprings on chains with grappels. He also had all (75-80) of his commercial shrimp pot bait boxes taken from the marten set locations.
If you hear of anyone trying to sell a pile of equipment of this description or recall some being offered this past summer please let him or Trooper Potter at AST know.
