Happy trappin' - keep 'em snappin'.

And one from Charlie Dobbins via Hal Sullivan after a poor day on the line - "So, you wanna be a trapper!"

Quite a few years ago on Tman, a person rather new to trapping asked the question, "How much are possum worth?"

Someone answered, "They're worth a million dollars if you catch a million of them."

Unfortunately, most of my trapping quotes cannot be shared on a kid-friendly forum. If anyone is interested in hearing some of them, I could provide said quotes on a ride along in Nov. or Dec..

An old trapper named Jack Rios that took me under his wing back in the 70's always said "Take your coat off and stay awhile " when he would bring in a coyote to skin.

People say coon are really smart,but later the trapper find out that they get so dumb after. Me
The reason so many people around here hate coyotes, is because they do not like a animal that is smarter then them. Me
Told that to some around here, for what they say to me and some dose have that dumb look on there face after.Others take it as a joke to the ones that hate the coyotes.

Being a good trapper is 8% skill, 2% luck and 90% plain hard work.
