Minnesota Trapline Products, Inc. was founded in October of 1978 by Tim and Nancy Caven. MTP has grown over the past 35 years to be the single largest direct retail mail order trapping supply company in the world. Minnesota Trapline Products branched out into the manufacturing of specialized heavy duty ("MB" - Minnesota Brand) trap line equipment in 1994.
In 2000 MTP took over as the sole distributor of Fox Hollow Magnum Animal Lures and Fox Hollow Super Stakes. Bob Young (owner of Fox Hollow) still works with the company developing new products and does extensive field research for MTP. Bob is an innovator whose accomplishments extend well beyond the trapping trade. Bob has invented and patented products for several industries and has been an engine builder for such racing legends as Bill Elliot.
Minnesota Trapline Products, Inc. is pleased to announce the purchase of the Bridger Trap Company from Terry and Jody Montgomery. We have proudly sold the Bridger Brand of traps since Terry first started in business. A mutual friendship developed between the Caven's and the Montgomery's over the decades and we were honored when Terry and Jody came to us to carry their tradition of excellence forward. Nathan Montgomery (Terry & Jody's grandson) will continue to operate Montgomery Trap and Supply Company in Utah and will be a major distributor for us in the western states. Best wishes to Terry and Jody in their much deserved retirement and prayers for better health to them both. Nathan is like family to us and with the lessons he has been taught by his grandparents he will go far in the trapping industry.
Our Minnesota Brand Traps will continue to be made right here in Minnesota as always. The Bridger traps will continue to be made in the current facility in Taiwan for the time being. When we see something in the Bridger line that can be done cost efficiently in Minnesota we will bring that home to employ more people here. Over the next year we will be making positive changes to the already popular Bridger line of traps. The purchase of the Bridger brand was for future generations. With our children in the business plus the many young talented people we have at MTP Nancy and I consider this a good long-term move. The trapping business has been our life and this is our vote of confidence that the trapping trade will long out live us.
Your order (big or small) is our #1 priority and customer service is our specialty. Everyone here at Minnesota Trapline Products fully understands that the customer comes first and that we won't be going home until each and every order is done and done right. We want ONE chance to prove ourselves to each of you. If we can't handle your order perfectly, we don't expect a second chance.
Remember, as always, if you're a veteran we would be pleased to send you a free MTP T-shirt or hat. We strongly support our military men and women. Thank you greatly for the opportunity to serve you and rest assured that you will be treated with the genuine respect you deserve.
