rendezvous, noticed the stretchers arent stained fm fat or blood, do you trap?
The only fur I had put up was rats and beaver, my fur buyer preferred to buy fur green. Getting up in age and limited by health issues, I wanted to take care of a few goals on my "Bucket List". I finally put up Raccoon, possum, fox and mink. I also caught and put up coyote, ermine and fisher that were on that "Bucket list". This season my truck wasn't able to pass inspection and not considered road worthy. I wound up waiting over a month for a cap for the new truck. I didn't trap this year due to lack of truck and then cap, I am not comfortable leaving some gear in the truck while making sets, I have been ripped off before. I did managed to catch a skunk in the yard, on purpose. I did the whole process; defunking, skinning, fleshing, boarding and removing the essence. That was way up on the "Bucket List"! If God willing and able, I will might try for Marten, Bobcat and Otter this upcoming season.
The boards are still pretty clean, due to... I don't set many traps due to health reasons, I also wash most of my fur before fleshing. The PVC fleshing beams might help also, I wipe them down regularly with clorox wipes and degrease as needed.
The Beaver Table skinning top is all seal and gets wiped down regularly also.
Swa dust/shavings and cardboard helps keep thing clean, that and my OCD too.
I have been avoiding coon, work and little value, concentrated on other goals.
In short do I trap? Yes, but for enjoyment!
