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

      A buddy and I fished fri. 4-14 had some ice issues once it hit shore and the wave action it was gone pretty quick. We fished about 5.5 hrs  5-fish 39-36-34- and 2 mid 20s. I went back mon. and tues. slow at first between 1-5 7 fish but the biggest was 32in the people out were getting fish also, tues got one right away 36 then it got dead the other people out did not catch any thing either may be the weather, it was pretty brutal and didn't stay to long. Proably wont get to Lowts for awhile now and always enjoy going their. Stay Safe Good Luck Bear55

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.
