My son is 9 and is getting interested in trapping. I trapped up until around 15 years ago. I gave a friend my traps so he could use them with his kids, and I’m sure they’re gone by now. What suppliers are you guys using to get traps, bait/lure, and really everything else. I was planning on running Bridger dogless traps since the main targets are bobcats and coyotes. Any suggestions or tips would be appreciated as well. I just want to use this as more time to spend with my son outdoors so it’s not overly serious. I want him to have fun, but I’ve got to keep it on a budget so as much as I’d like $30 traps it’s just not practical.

Where are you located in ok? Okie Cable and trap is located in Crowder. Jed has a full supply and a fur buyer also.. F&T Post is a big catalogue supply co.

I've bought supplies and sold some fur to Jeb Hollingshead down at Crowder over the years, but also use Minnesota brand quite a bit too.

Being from Indiana I mostly use Hoosier Trapper Supply but have occasionally ordered some stuff from Cumberland Trappers Supply also.
Prices don’t seem to vary to much with the different suppliers. Mostly it comes down to more varieties of lures and baits.

I live in Weatherford so Crowder’s a little out of the way. I’ve been looking and Kaatz Bros. Prices seem good and they have a good selection.

Anyone know why OK law says you’re only allowed 2 springs on a trap?

To my knowledge its due to the laws regarding trapping were put in place when the traditional long spring trap was the most common and coil springs were not. ODWC does have the desire to "update" some of the trapping regs. They proposed (but I cant recall if it passed or not) a bill last year to move the trapping laws out of Title 29 (controlled by legislature) and into Title 800 (controlled by ODWC) this would allow the agency to make changes without going through the same processes which is usually easier.

That’s the only reason I could think of as well. I had to explain the difference to our game warden, which I guess surprised me.
