    How did everyone do this 2006-2007 season?

    I didn't get one trap out this season because of my new job. They had us training 6 days a week. Hopefully next season I can chase them mink and beaver again.

    Rainy, muddy, wet, warm and did I mention rainy...at least in SW Ohio. Overall did all right but I hope next year is colder and not so much rain and mud to deal with.

    good job Jeff. My first year resulted in ONE catch, a skunk! But I was only 7. Still, i trapped 5 years before I caught my first fox at 12. 10 coon and 2 reds your first year IS great. And i bet now your hooked for life!

    Jeff a good trapper is 9 times out of 10 a good hunter also. A man that can read the animals and find sign to set on has no trouble take big game like deer. Good job and keep it up.
