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

2nd year and not even getting started! Plan to hit em hard for many years to come! Walking up to a trap and seeing fur is a huge adrenaline rush!

Third year, neither my Dad or my Grandfather trapped but I got all of my Great Grandfather old victors, although there weren't very many I had enough to try to teach myself how to set and learned the rest from the animals smile
