Being a beaver trapper from way back I have alot of #4 victor jumps that really did the job on beaver. They were lighter to carry and easier to bed than the long springs. Even to this day I would rather set a leghold for beaver than a coinnibear. I guess it is just the thrill of taking one the old way.

I never used jumps much for dry land trapping. I did uses 1s and 1 1/2s for muskrat but made sure it was a good drownding set as the traps are so lite they don't take a rat to the bottom very well.
