Lightweight, compact, Conibear traps are designed for use in a wide variety of predator control, fur trapping and wildlife management applications. Used properly, they result in a quick, human kill.
These traps are widely used by wildlife managers and trappers throughout the World. Their experience proves that these traps work equally well on the ground, suspended, submerged in water, under ice or when covered with light snow. However, they should not be used where they might take non-target animals.

Recent refinements have made these traps even more effective and easier to use. Newer versions of Conibear traps are indicated by "2" after the trap number. Every Conibear trap has a 4 way trigger that fires the trap when an animal pushes the trigger from any direction including the side. Novice trappers should always complete a trapper education course given by the appropriate state and/or trapper organization prior to trapping.
