Just wondering how long each of you have been trapping.
48 years for me--boy that provides a lot of memories.

Ah, Prtty sure it's number eight. I've never trapped with another person, so I've learned everything for myself. It started out rough but I'm doing good now.

Been at it since 1959 (born in 1950)...had to take a few (20 plus) away for my military career. Been at it a lot since 1980.....everything from short lines to long lines. Water and land trapping. Watched a lot of changes come and go. Most of you younger and newer trappers have a lot going for you with the internet, videos, books, use them all and let your time on the line teach you what works best for you. Tom
