Nope, don't know anything about it, or what could be learned. Would like to hear more though.

As a youngster, I trapped enough to buy most of my hunting things. Muskrat is very good eating. I have seen the return of good prices for the pelts like 3.50-4.50 for ex-large. Now for the story, at only 13 years old I would ride my bike at midnight down to the ditches and run the traps, then return at 6:00am and run them again. This was done all before school. I had one local policeman who would stop most nights just to check on me. That was 40 years ago. Just another old story guys.
