Bridger Braun #9
10í of chain
Swivel at the trap and a swivel 4í from the trap
Any swivels farther down the chain will be useless once wrapped up in the brush so I donít see the need for them.
Green log or rebar drag. Some of them wonít move the green log if it gets frozen down under the snow.

What size chain? Is #2/0 with a 465 lb working load enough?

Use 1/4" chain! I used 3/16" originally and had a wolf break it!

Default wolf trap

Uke quit catching such big wolves that break your trap chains. Bad enough your always getting Top Lot marten and fisher, next you will get a top lot wolf with logging chain.

If I was to do it all again I would give Koro a go. MB750 too small and miss the odd one. Bridgers are heavy and I don't like them for some other reasons I won't mention. I hear good things about Koro. 10 foot of chain. Swivels like Brian suggested.
