Well Possum, your reputation proceeds you, lets just put it that way! I am some one who "knows" a lot of people. Having been a trapper about 40 years and a lure dealer,(although certainly not a big one but I sold my 1st lure and bait in 1977) and a member of The NTA and several trapping org.s ,one could say I've been around and have a lot of "friends " in the trapping industry. I've met almost everybody who's a somebody......but what does that matter, right?
As for the "chicken plucker" , when I'm out of line, I say I'm sorry. More people should try it. I'm not always right but I do always have an opinion!
