Lots of good quality equipment there as well as a pile of books all signed by a who's who in the trapper's world. It was like a kid let loose in a candy store when they asked me to look through them. Sure miss Gene though frown LLL

Sorry if this is rude, but would it be possible to buy anything through this site (like we do in the trap shed) for those that can't make it? I would be interested in a trap with a tag as well.

What if someone there would buy say a bundle of traps and split them up with the guys that can't make it? I am going if anyone is interested in doing that.

The only reason I'm going is to get a tagged trap.

It says on the Iowa site that the family removed all tags from his traps.

As BF stated all tags have been removed. There will be an opportunity to purchase a trap that bears his tag though but I am not at liberty to say more at this time. Paul I thought of you when Craig and I were going through all the old paper backs and pamphlets. PM away. LLL

Gene was a tireless worker on behalf of all trappers, through his years of service with the ITA and the NTA. He was also a top notch trapper. Coon in particular. The trapping community lost one of the greatest ambassadors for trapping when he breathed his last.

That's always the sad part to me in the trapping community, the actual mover's and shakers that
are in it for all the right reason's not fame and glory go about their business every year making
sure everything is going as it should not looking for a thank you or anything else, then they pass
away with no fan fair from the community they worked their entire lives to help and nurture along.

Gene was one of those guys, if it needed doing he would just go do it and never mention it. I will
miss him deeply along with other's like Marv Miller who just passed away. I don't see their type much
anymore involved in things.
