I love trapping. This is only my second year trying my hand at it and its addicting. The one problem I have is that is conflicts with deer season. I am still deerless with only this weekend left.

I had a small trap line out for a few weeks. I'm not trying to catch a truckload, just a few of my target species so I am able to learn the proper fur trade techniques. This year I caught two muskrats, a mink, and a beaver. The beaver was quite a load and weighed in at 52 pounds. I caought them all in traps set specifically for the species caught. Weasel/Ermine are on my list for the winter.

I took a big mink that I caught last year to the taxidermist and just got it back last week. Its amazing looking!

Good luck with your outdoor pursuits!
