Trapping has been around for hundreds of years. However, even though our ancestors may have trapped a decade ago the equipment and techniques used today are much different.
Recently the price of furs have steadily been on the rise. As the world economy evolves and our needs or desires change, so do the prices of fur.
However, even though the prices may be increasing, anyone who has set a trapline before knows it's not about the money.....it's about the sport.
Those who share this passion have a love for nature and the outdoors.
In fact, many of us probably have memories of checking a small trapline on those cold early mornings before the school bus came rumbling down the road.
There's just something about wading through a backwoods pond or walking down a muddy riverbank that get's me excited about the sport.
The anticipation of finding the perfect spot and setting a well placed trap. Then eagerly waiting until the next morning so you can check your trap and find out whether or not you were successful.
No city lights, no loud trucks or machinery, just the sights and sounds of the great outdoors.
Just like any other hobby, if you want to be successful you must have a decent amount of knowledge and understanding of it.
You need someone who's "been there" and "done that" to teach you things that were learned from experiences in the past that were either successes or failures.
