Anyone have any experience with these. I have some Dukes, but have an opportunity To pick some of these Bridger brand traps at a good price. Thanks in advance.

The bridgers work great and they're easy to set.

I have Duke and Z traps. They work well and look similar to Bridger. The Z trap has push/ pull trigger which I believe is better. Get the tool to help set the traps, makes it a lot easier on your hands.

I bought one of the Duke traps to try out. So far 9 nights and 9 coons. I have been using old Nutter Butter cookies for bait. I thought cookies would keep the cats from messing with it, and it has.

apple slices work good as well for helping eliminate cats from traps

I have never used the Bridger, they look good. I have used Dukes, Z and FB. Dukes and Zs are great, I modified the Zs to my liking, and the FBs (the kind with the big, easy to push lever) are not so good.

Partial to the Z-Traps with the two-way trigger.

Coon dagger traps also have the two-way trigger.
