Sounds fun, can't wait to be there


Trapping is easy you say? You try getting your target animal to step in a 3 inch area of its whole territory.

Here is a little more information.

Admission is $5 per person good for the entire weekend. Kids 16 and under free.

Inside booth space is $40 per space ( one table and chair) price is good for entire weekend.

Tailgating is $25 for a 20 foot wide spot. Tailgating is first come first serve. Again, this is for the entire weekend.

As far as a demo line up I can give you a tease. ( the line up/day time are not finished as I am writing this. )

So far we will have the following folks doing demo's,

Jeff Dunlap
Lesel Reuwsaat
Greg Schroeder
Gary Schuman
J.R. from JR & sons
Jeff Hagerty
John Caretti
Ed Schneider
Joshua Keith
Scott Welch
Earnest Winter
Jim Tate
And probably a couple more. So as it is right now we have an outstanding line up of knowledgeable trappers.
