How to remove a conibear from your dog

Recommended Posts

cbrooks

I was thinking the same thing. I kind of doubt the knipex is heavy duty enough for the coniber metal spring.

Is there somebody who has knowledge of a large conibear who can in person show me exactly what to do?

I am a trapper and would be happy to show you it is fairly simple as long as you can keep your dog calm enough to get it off.

Maybe I missed this--but how much time do you have (approx) from when the trap is sprung---2-3 minutes?

My guess is that would be about the time the dog would be expired with no hope for revival. You wouldn't want to wait that long if at all possible. A neighbor has a yellow lab that went a half hour in a conibear only because he had a leg in the trap as well that created room for his windpipe.

This is a very helpful topic, thanks for sharing the info. Was going to ask if poster could do a video, but a quick youtube search found one that shows the rope method discussed in the thread. Rope example starts at about 1:20 of the video:

Here are some things to consider this fall while we're chasing birds. Like most things in life it isn't as simple as we'd like to believe. If anyone tells you differently they aren't telling you the truth.

Well done post with pics . It will take alot of practice for anybody to keep a dog calm enough to get him out in time and thats on the outside chance the 220 does't break his neck . I've been trapping a long,long time and just the thought of having to get my dog out of a 220 locked up behind the head makes my teeth hurt . And I have never used a trapsetter while out on the line just my bare hands which is quicker . I would have to try and get him out but ........

      Sticks like smurfy said, or an arm full of cattails.  I always made sure I had enough lumber marking my holes nothing would sink or blow away and could be seen from a good way off by a snowmobiler.   Like anything else, some people care; some don’t.     Other suggestion, look up some of the old “Look and Release” videos that were posted on the forums in the past.  Lotta good footage of nice fish left to swim away.

      BINGO!! There isn't a time out that I don't laugh my arse off watching the way some of them pike act. That's the most fun of spearing.  
    • smurfy
      Usually by grabbing a stick, piece of brush, downed branches from shore.

      Release is not chucking the spear!
    • gimruis
      Absolutely.  But angling with hook and line has the option for catch and release.  Spearing does not have that option.
    • gimruis
      If you don't mind me asking, how are old spear holes supposed to be marked?  I'm not familiar with this issue.
    • smurfy
      well I just drove past pokey like about 11;30 today on 169...……...and not to many are out and about just yet.😀 talked to a few locals..still pretty tough getting around on some of the lakes!!!!

      I use mine on and off fishing. I have a sun shield for mine in the summer. it works ok at best. but I do use it to watch fish and check structure. I just used it the last 3 weekends tipup fishing. its both fun and frustrating. to watch a pike grab the sucker, mess with it then let it go, and watch there behavior is crazy fun. and frustrating. I bought a tripod for mine and you can zero in on your bait, but it does take a bit of playing to get it set right. I lost the little rubber stopper so I use a couple winter depth finders. the only downfall is the deeper you need to set it, the more risk you have of a fish tangling up in it!!!!

      "Tis the season"     Thee best time of the ice season is here. Get off the couch and enjoy it!
    • Tom Sawyer
      Very common to find large openings in ice after several 40 degree days, and especially with rain. 8" angling holes can easily double in size overnight after a good rain.  It's pretty hard to "mark" holes at that point in the season. Best time to be out there, in my opinion. But, by all means,  if your not comfortable with it Stay Home. For those that want to experience the best bite of the season, just watch your step, and be careful you don't loose that Vexilar down an oversize hole 😆 or get pulled in by a big fish 😢 😢 😢     Won't be long, for me to get the planks and waders ready 😀
