Vintage Home Made Animal Trap - Folk Art - Fur Trapping - Rustic Cabin Decor - Man Cave Restaurant - Rustic Décor
Here's a very unique and beautiful hand made piece of Appalachia - One of a kind!
** For Decoration Only!**
It's a raccoon trap. Raccoon are very smart and wary, and learn to recognize traps over time. Their intelligence is only surpassed by their curiosity, and they have no issue sticking their paw in a hole that has food in it, especially if the trap is hidden. Some modern traps are designed on this principle.
Well there's the history lesson! This one is old, rusty, and beautiful. The top is from an old wood crate. I can make out the word "...roots" - that's about it. The trap is operational, but takes some effort to set. It's better left as an eye catcher (and conversation piece) in your cabin or lodge. Buy and display at your own risk!
It's crudely built, but solid nonetheless - please ask questions prior to purchase, and inspect all of the images, I tried to catch every angle.
I would not recommend attempting to set it, or restoring them to usable condition. If you are looking to start a new hobby, best to get some proper training and new equipment!
**all of the traps we sell are for decorative purposes only!! All of them are retired, rusty, and considered unusable. Fur trapping is considered to be a piece of history, and old traps are representative of that. If it offends you that we rescue old rusty pieces and make them available as décor, then you may be in the wrong place - cause we do a lot of that!** Seller assumes no responsibility for misuse of old traps, as they are for décor only!
