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.

      Another guy went through on Hubert yesterday near brainerd. That's the third guy ( all on different lakes) that went through this week! In that area! Please don't go out! If you do don't be to cautious. The crow wing county sheriff highly recommended not going on any lake ice no matter what type of transportation. Stay home and watch the ice melt. I know This is the vermilion area but it was a open thread. Sorry.

      I am familiar with big water and big wind, and do my best to avoid that combination.

        +1 It can get real nasty real quick out there.

      You are right, mille lacs would be the last place you would want to be in the middle of during wind or a thunderstorm.

      Talked to Tim a couple of days ago, he had room for 14 tables, now has 15 tables rented.  He squeezed in one more somewhere.  Another guy called after that and agreed to set up outside.  There will be several others outside, as well.  There may still be room outside, but I would say it's definitely filling up!  Should be lots of good stuff to pick from.  Happy shopping everyone!
