trapping!

7 posts in this topic

I've been interested in trapping pretty much my whole life and never followed up on it. I would love to tag along with some trappers out there and see what it's all about before I run out and buy a bunch of traps with no idea how to really use them. I'll share the cost of gas and I'll be your pack horse. I'm 33 and a construction worker with a strong back and work ethic. Some of you old timers need some younger muscle I would love to help out. While out hunting various critters this fall I've seen alot of beavers and muskrats and its really got me wondering this year more than ever. I hope to hear from some trappers out there!!

Ironman - I run a line of about 40 conibears just for fun but I'll be out of town the next three weekends (buddy is running my line) so that really won't do you any good. Next year if you want to tag along you're more than welcome. I'm just south of St. Cloud. Won't need the muscles...got wheelers to haul all the stuff and dead critters. smile.gif

Thanks for the offer, maybe next year. Havn't actually looked at the regs as far as season goes, how long does it run?

Can you try a piece of plywood over the hole, with a rock on it. Or try mink scent, but I maybe smelly in such a confined space. With rats said to be topping out at 10 bucks per this season, you may want to trap the little pests. grin.gif

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.
