You have not been losing any because people have seen fur on the road and know it is not worth a lot, triple the price of fur and things will change.

Well tomorrow is the end of trapping for most WI fur bearers. Looks like everyone had a good season and got outside to enjoy nature.

Have a good off season and get ready for 2018 - 2019.

See you at the the various state and national Rondys in our area this summer.

I can remember when fur was even more worthless then It Is now.Johnny sneakum would steal your traps and leave the catch behind.

Most likely. Or It's due to poor habitat.

Several states have conservative closures in terms of muskrats. It's just evidence of our ignorance

I have been recording size for a few years now and this winter has been unusual in that regard. Generally by February smalls, mediums and in my case large muskrats no longer occur. This year has been different....haven't created a theory tho

I wondered how you did on beaver, looks like a lot of work, but you did good on them.

Great season Cable. Appreciate you taking the time to post so we could all enjoy the ride. That vehicle of yours has sure taken a beating this year.


50 years trapping and hopefully another 50 still to come. OK, let's hope for 15 more.
