So I guess I will start out by saying its been a great first year trapping in AK and I have learned a lot! So its the end of the season for me and I'm already starting to think of what I need to start buying for next year. I'm thinking more long springs and 330's. Both of these will be for land sets for lynx and wolverine. The longsprings, I mostly trap bait piles so you really don't ever know whats going to hit the set. I've been thinking of #4's. I figure they can hold anything from a fox to a wolf. Then I thought maybe should get #5's but that may break the leg bone on a lynx or fox. Then the question of gap or no gap. A buddy at work said no gap because he thinks it allows for more leg/hide damage because of movement. I have always used #3 Northwoods coils. Im keeping these in action but deeper snow is one of the reason I'm also wanting a little larger traps.
