    I did some trapping back 33-44 odd years ago but what I did back then don't count anymore besides that was when the fur market crashed and the guy who bought my furs got stuck with them.

    You think the furmarket will ever rebound?

    I had to teach one guy wet trapping back in 76 and I ain't done any trapping sence so I haven't been keeping up with the furmarket but I don't think it will ever be as good as it was before that crash,to many people who feel sorry for the poor little critters.

    Are U familiar with a magazine called: Fur,Fish,and Game.? Lot of information in it too. Any info I have on Ms. trapping is over 25 years old so wouldn't be of much value to you.

    Howdy tin!!!! How ya'll are??? :D

    That's like me cause telling what I did back then wouldn't do anybody any good. I think it was the winter of 74-75 the last year I trapped for money,trying to feed my kids after jobs got short because of the oil embargo.
