    Bought my trapping license today😁👍

    Anyone else trapping on here this year?? I know the WoodsmanA is. I cant wait to get some fur, focusing on beaver, fox, coyote and raccoon.

    Definitely take the course, Rev. Even if you buy yourself one trap and spend one weekend doing it ... You're still part of the never ending learning process but more importantly, you're then part of extending an American heritage that's dying quickly. Anything we can do to keep trapping from being forgotten..:

    i hunt with some friends in Maine and New Hampshire from time to time who are old school trappers. it really is an amazing way of life. i unfortunately dont have the time to check traps all the time so i cant set them. i still have yet to deer hunt this year

    Rev, the good thing about trapping is, it doesn't have to be light out to check traps. Unlike hunting, you can do it 24/7. I've set traps in spots that I could check on my way to work with a light, from the road. Concealed enough so not to draw attention, but visible (especially eye shine) with a flashlight. Don't even have to get out of truck unless something is caught. And if you use cages, you can leave it until you come home.
    It will depend on my mood, my trapping partner moved to Texas, so I'll be solo. Probably won't even start until Jan. unless the deer gods bless me pretty soon.
    The deadfall challenge is still on for all trappers.
