Trapping

Postby wawhitey » 05 22, 2020 •  [Post 1]

Well, ive been wanting to start trapping for some time now, but having to go to spokane to do a test in person has caused me to procrastinate on it. Something good finally came from the kung flu, we can now do the trapping exam online. So i just knocked it out real quick and passed, so ill be getting after the bobcats this winter!

Excellent! I haven’t trapped in many years but used to love it; that’s what I did every winter growing up and into early adult years. Hope to hear of your adventures this coming winter and see some pics.

Go for it
I trapped for a big part of my income during the 70's and 80"s Was even the trapper education director in MN. Tons of cool trapping stories. When I left Washington a buddy was interested in trapping, I gave him a few videos from my brother, trained him over the phone. One year depredation beaver bought a new Tundra for him.
Let me know what your going to trap ,, I still have lures , Ill ship some to you
