Bear trap setup
Hutzel combines a range of old and new methods from blacksmithing to temper the steel, to cutting the steel with laser and waterjet cutters. He uses everything from hammers and punches, to sandpaper, grinders and polishing discs to make hundreds of trap models, from smaller working traps to collectibles with a mirror finish.
Hutzel has been contracted to create traps for many notable events including a trap for the 200th anniversary of the Lewis and Clark Expedition in 2004 and more than 100 bear traps for the 50th anniversary of the National Trappers Association in 2009.
Besides making collectable traps, Hutzel has sole rights to sell a few books on traps and their importance. For example, he sells “Collectable Traps” by Robert Vance, which lists more than 2,500 items, including traps and other collectables, for $19.95. It is the 10th edition, good for 2010-2015. He notices that many farmers can have useful traps in their barns and sheds, and they should educate themselves before selling them.

Reverse bear trap from saw
In the year 1806, Sewell Newhouse was born in Brattleboro, Vermont. When he was 14 years old, his family relocated to Oneida County, New York. He spent much of his time as a young man in the bush, getting to know the local Native tribes. He grew into a well-rounded woodsman under their tutelage, especially knowledgeable about the pursuit and capture of wild animals.
When Newhouse was 17, he made his first steel trap out of scrap metal found in his father’s blacksmith shop. He learned how to temper steel from a family friend, and over the next 20 years, he made several more traps and a few rifles, often selling to other local trappers, usually with the help of a partner or a hired hand.
In 1849, John Humphrey Noyes approached Newhouse about starting a cooperative living enterprise on the banks of Oneida Creek, only a few miles from Kenwood, New York. The commune was conceived as a religious concept with the aim of saving humanity. It was built on the premise that the only way to live a perfect life was to give up everything for the benefit of the world.
