Old leg hold traps
« on: June 06, 2017, 03:20:58 PM »
I have a some of the older leg hold traps.  I know it is illegal to use them, but am I allowed to sell them as decoration pieces?  I have no use for them anymore and would like to get rid of them.  Thanks for the help.

Nowhere in your incoherent rambling did you come close to what can be considered a rational thought. Everyone is now dumber having heard it. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul.

I have no idea bud.  Don't know what they go for.  Just trying to make sure it is legal to sell first, seeing as they are illegal to use.

Sell away, nothing illegal about selling them, what the buyer does with them is out of your control
To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

Sure not illegal to own them just to use in WA. You can sell them but I would say they are all what we would call user traps not collectible. I would say they are worth about a dollar a size plus a little so a #4 worth $4 and they are jumps plus in good shape, maybe $6.
Can't tell the sizes but look like mostly #3s 0r #4s. I can see one #14 and maybe more are #14s. 14s are basically a #4 jump with teeth. Those probably worth at least $12.
You could probably sell them over on Trapperman because they are legal in most other States

Thanks for the info.  All these are the same size, must have just been the angle of the picture.  None have teeth.  A couple I can't read what it says, but all the others say Oneida jump 3.  I have someone local here that was asking me about them that's why I asked about the legality here first.  I tried to do a little research on prices, but knowing nothing about them I was only able to find a big price range of $10-60 each.  Don't know how accurate that is after what you said, lol.  If my local guy here decides he doesn't want them, I'll throw a classifieds post up here.  Thanks again

If those are all #3's and you can get $40.00 for all of them ~ take it!
I use to use them way back when ............ I first started trapping.   :bash: Bad trap for me anyway  :twocents:
If your buddy in your are doesn't want them try the guys over in Idaho.

Makes sense, they look in good condition so $10 may be fair. $60 is more then a comparable new trap would be so I think that is out. Of course I see traps that are common in collectible places with crazy prices on them sometimes so who knows what someone may pay.
They are a pretty common Victor brand trap so no actual collector would be interested.

All jump traps (singe spring) too.  Many a mink, bobcat, scrat, beaver, marten, yote, etc.... fell game to these same traps while growing up in the Big Sky State.  I'll take em for nostalgic value if nobody else jumps on them.  RJ

Go to Trapperman.com and post them. Not all area's of the US are as liberal as WA state
