The Duke #15 Bear Traps are replicas of the traps used in the 1800 when bear trapping was legal during the taming of the West. These traps feature cast steel jaws with serious teeth, cast pan and tempered long springs. Due to legal reasons, the Bear Traps are not recommended for use. However, if you are looking for a serious fixture to decorate your home, cabin or store, these traps will surely stir some excitement. These traps are 36" long and weigh 20 lbs.
