I started trapping when I was 12 years old. I really don't know why? No one in my family traps. But it just seemed to call to me.
Learning how to trap didn't come easily by any means. I had to work at it hard and long. I started out trapping skunks, opossums and weasels. The books of the time were okay, but don't compare to the books and DVDs of today. This doesn't mean you're going to be a pro in a short order but the knowledge that is out there will make learning a whole lot easier.
I know I've been trapping for 37 years. Trapped in five state, have trapped private land, timber company land, county land, state land and federal land. I enjoy it just as much today as I did 37 years ago, maybe even a little more.
Along the way I've invented a beaver snaring system! For snaring beaver under the ice. It's called (THE ICER SYSTEM).
We now (my wife Sandy and I) have a trappings supply business and we also buy fur. I'm a trapping education teacher too. I really enjoy teaching trapping and helping new trappers out!
I've lived my life with a few simple rules - be honest, work hard and tell it straight as it is. And I bring these rules to our store too! Plain and simple, I am not going to sell you stuff you don't need!!!
If you have any questions please feel free to email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Because the knowledge that I have left in my head is Free and I'd gladly give you any help I can.
Hope you have a good day!
