"If you don't take advice seriously, no matter who is sharing it, then you are as good a trapper now as you will ever be"- Ryan Mcleod

Some of my eighty year old friends still listen closely for any bit of information they can, even though they have seen it all already.

Don't remember the exact quote but Charles Dobbins use to say a beaver trapper should wear a size 4 hat and a size 48 jacket!

some of dad's quotes.

"It'll be payday here tomorrow" After making what looked like a promising set.
A beaver trappers qualifications are "a size 4 hat and 48 jacket". I heard him say that one all my life.

Couple from my Grandpa:

"Just like we know what we're doing sometimes ah?" He says that when we have success in any form.

"Boy get me in 12 gauge range of that roadrunner and I'll fix him" While watching Wile. E. Coyote try to get the roadrunner

"Animals never take a day off"

"I'll show you where the bear (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) in the buckwheat"

My buddy ask Charles Dobbins how he traps beaver when it starts freezing up. Charlie looked at him and told him he turned his radiator south. LOL I will never forget that one.

You cant catch a double setten one trap.

"Trapping is all about managing disappointment." Steven Rinella
The fox has to be lucky every time he visits my set if he doesn't want to get caught. I only have to get lucky once to take him home.
