I'll start with a few I like—

"A coyote has all the time in the world and learns very quickly." - Clint Locklear

"I can't quit. They can't make me quit. I don't care how cold it gets." - Blackie

And two more. These were posted somewhere on T-man. I can't remember where but I wrote them down when I read them.

"Pork cracklings have been the death of many foxes." - Swamp Wolf

"Trapping really is a terminal illness. Once you start it follows you to your death bed." - beaver trapper

If a location is good for one set, it's good for two or three sets.

Traps in back of the truck won't catch anything. Go put em in the ground!

A snapped trap at least tells you the set was in the right place and was interesting to something that came by. You did that much right.

Location, location, location.

To the man that has never followed the trails of the trapline, I can only say, "You have missed much." You will find him rich in health, happiness, and the things in life that are most worthwhile, and mellow with the memories of a life in the great, clean outdoors. Ah, for the life of a millionaire say some; but just let me stay a trapper. -Bill Nelson

Giardia has two stages.
The first stage is: You think you are going to die.
The second stage is: You hope that you die.
I heard this one from Trapper Dick Baxendale. Anyone heard of him? I am sure there are many who have met him and not soon forget it.

Can't forget ole Del Gue from Jeremiah Johnson!

"Ain't this somethin'? I told my pap and mam I was coming to the mountains to trap and be a mountain man. Acted like they was gut-shot. Says, "son, make your life go here. Here's where the peoples is. Them mountains is for animals and savages." I said, "Mother Gue, the Rocky Mountains is the marrow of the world." And by God I was right."

"I ain't never seen 'em, but my common sense tells me the Andes is foothills, and the Alps is for children to climb! Keep good care of your hair! These here is God's finest scupturings! And there ain't no laws for the brave ones! And there ain't no asylums for the crazy ones! And there ain't no churches, except for this right here! And there ain't no priests excepting the birds. By God, I are a mountain man, and I'll live 'til an arrow or a bullet finds me. And then I'll leave my bones on this great map of the magnificent . . ."

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."

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.

More Jeremiah Johnson-
Jeremiah Johnson: [Jeremiah and Caleb find Del Gue buried to his neck in sand] Are you all right?
Del Gue: Sure, sure, I got a fine horse under me!
[sneezes]
Del Gue: Got one of them feathers in my nose.
Jeremiah Johnson: You keep sneezing, it'll come out all right. Haven't seen anyone pass by recent, have you?
Del Gue: Nobody's gone in front of me. Can't say what's happened behind me, though.
Jeremiah Johnson: The Injuns put you here?
Del Gue: T'weren't Mormons. A Chief, name of Mad Wolf. Nice fella, don't talk a (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) of a lot. Say, you wouldn't have an extra hat on you, would you? Shade's getting' scarce in these parts.
Jeremiah Johnson: What'd you shave your head for?
Del Gue: Mad Wolf figures like every other Injun I know. Says this scalp isn't fit for no decent man's lodgepole. Ain't the first time I've protected my head in such a way. Name's Del Gue, with an "e".
