I wish that I still lived there but I don't.

Yes always interesting to hear what is trapped in other country's, and what traps are used. I know Germany use some interesting type traps, especially for fox.

We spent two weeks in and around Frankfurt two years ago.

I had hoped (even posted here) to meet a German Trapper while we were there, but no luck.

Tell us about trapping there!

I second white marlin. What do you trap? What type of traps do you use or are you allowed to use?

Most traps used in Germany catch game alive. Since Germany is much smaller then the States or Canada there‘s always a town or village nearby. Means lots of cats and dogs and people in the woods.

Some of the traps look like this.

[Linked Image]

Snares and foodholds are forbidden.

I personally use a few conibears for marten and coon.

Trapping had a bad image for some time, but it‘s getting better.

Don‘t hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

That's quite the live trap I've never seen anything like that before very interesting to say the least .

My mom was a genealogy researcher and on my dad's side with help she found relatives of mine as far back as 1300 in Germany sadly I don't know how to speak German.

Enjoy your day and Stay Safe out there !

Would love to see pictures of some of your results. Overseas trapping has always amazed me.

My maternal grandparents were 100% German. They spoke German amongst themselves so I can understsnd some. My Grandps was in ww2 in the 1st LAH division . They were rabid Catholics and attended mass 3x a week. I have his dogtag and rosary from the war. Unfortunately he died while I was in high school.

I lived there for 13 years on and off I loved every minute of it. I'd write in German but can only speak it functionally. Had to wait till I made it back to the states to get into trapping.


The world is just awesome
