I forgot to include that there are a few additional significant reasons to like an ADC career.

1. Huge amounts of money roll in constantly. Some people send me money just to get on my list in case they ever need to hire me.

2. The next reason is about the fast cars. I work out of a Shelby Mustang.

3. The last reason is, and you might have guessed this - yes, the women. Do you guys have a following of female groupies? Mostly from age 19 to 28? I am concerned that something might get cold in those short skirts. Sometimes they can be just too much of a good thing and I get tired.

Oh, the stresses of a professional trapper!

Willy, that was a very nice write up. Thanks for sharing.


Convincing the next generation to pursue a career as a professional trapper is the easy part!

That's gotta be a rough job doing 20 stops.


I think he is making a different point than the rough 20 stops. Might be wrong.

I only do (did) wild animals and birds, no rats, mice or bugs. Love the work, hate working with homeowners. Mostly transplanted city people who watched too many Bambi movies. Best time was winter, then they did not come outside and tell me how to do my job. Never charged the limited amount of farmers in my county (mostly beaver problems), as a result I have more places to hunt, fish and pelt trap than I can get to in my old age. One farmer had a deer hunting lease that was all state troopers. They complained to him about me trapping there (I was snaring mink on his creek). He told them "take a hike, I can find lots of hunters, but he is the only beaver man I trust". Eric
One other thing, I charged a flat rate for a job, not a setup fee and a per animal rate. Most of my clients were not home from 6AM to 6PM and if I caught and removed an animal when they did not see it they often would not believe me. Flat rate solved that problem.
