For many of us our season is nearing a close. I really only have Spring Beaver season to look forward to myself as most trapping is near over in MN. I am looking forward to next fall and am wondering this.

What are your goals for next year, and what effort do you plan on making to obtain them ?

Young or old I an interested in your responce.

So what will do you plan on doing to help obtain your goals.

Attend more demo's,read books and articles, work up the nerve to quiz more experienced trappers, buy more traps, obtain more permission or just plain work harder ?

I think you would all be surprised how much help more experienced trappers will offer if you ask. There are some talented Trappers that understand you are the future of the sport and would be proud to help you. Jim Blakely is a master with the Coon via the Lil Griz. Bogmaster knows Beaver & Muskrat and loves to help the kids. Maddog47 knows cats well in the snow country. Bunch of very experienced fur handlers as well.

My suggestion is to not be shy. Stick your hand out or send a polite PM. You may benefit greatly !! May even make a friend for life.

I'm sure I'm gonna have to be better next year. This year was my first year, so I was very unexperienced. I hope to have more traps next year too.
