Trapping on Modern Marvels

6 posts in this topic

Neat show on Modern Marvels on the History Channel airing right now. I want to go out and come with on a trapline and the show has shown me a few neat things on snares, legholds, and other traps.

And of course the trivia. A beaver pelt in the 1800's was worth $3, equivalent to $100 today.

I really liked how they showed spooked animals jerking away.Typical sympathetic pr..Modified traps help but if done right with any proper sized and staked dry ground leg hold set they are coiled up waiting.

I definetly would like to have a collection of steel like they showed SWEET...

Heck look at most of Mirandas trapping videos..

Exactly. It was the first thing my wife noticed when she saw the show. It was a concern she had so I took her trapping with me.only 1 out of 10 fox that day did she see any struggle. I have released several wolves and even they dont freak bad. I think they poked that snared yote or videoed it right after it tightened down in the show..

The BMP is fine but it serves more for as control practice on federal section leases.

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
