pretty cool looking trap-looks like it took forever to build.
i wonder just how it traps the bear though? smacking its tail while its at the bait? or are you supposed to attach a door or something to keep the bear inside?
I love deadfalls. for kicks and giggles i set one up using a 3 foot diameter douglas fir log, about 20' long, lifted up about 6 feet using a 40:1 mechanical advantage pulleys and using neighbouring trees as a lifting anchor point.
more of a vehicle crusher if done across a road.......
