This is a response to my questionnaire sent to someone who wanted to join Trapperman.com. It's an example of the perverse thinking that's out there.

Hi, Paul. I will be completely honest with you. I have nothing to do with trapping innocent living creatures, i have a heart and soul. I didnt even know your forum was for murderers and is about murdering and trapping other living beings who WANT to LIVE and be happy as much as you do, i was just gonna put a back link in your site, cause that is my job.
But let me tell you something, dont mean to be unfriendly, it's just that i know the truth and i will tell it to you.
Those animals that you and your felllow murderers are trapping have families, want to live and they can feel suffering just like you can feel.
NOW, i know that eventually everyone gets what he deserves and everything that u and your fellow murderers did to this animals will come back to you one way or another, soon or later. To some, it may come in their next life harder than this life.
Because everything carries a soul, but i know u dont believe and know this, otherwise you wouldnt be a murderer.
But you will get it back, please remember my words next time that u have to go to the hospital, or to take pills for the rest of your life once you reach a certain age, or younger. Doesnt matter, when or how, please remember this next time that you feel that life is unfair to you.
Ask a question in your site which is full of really pure hearted "human" beings, ask them how many of them have to take pills just to live, or how many of them lost a loved one, or their wife left them. Ask them this kinds of questions, and you might be able to comperhend the idea, that in life really we get what we all deserve. If u dont believe, just look at the world around you and in general.
Next time that u trap and kill an animal, first look into his eyes. Look deeply into them and try to feel what they are feeling, try to be behind their eyes for just a second.
And i hope that some spark of compassion and goodness lights in your heart. But... i feel like i ask for too much, u have to have certain heart and mind capacity to be able to get in the shoes of another living being.

Have a good day... and please, dont believe me... just keep this in mind next time you suffer in ANY WAY, small or big.
There are NO coincedences in life.
Even if u fall and brake a leg or a hand, even when u are diagnosed with diabetes, even when your car brakes all of the sudden.
REMEMBER, there are no coincedences.
Doesnt matter if u believe it or not, things still happen and it's not all bad luck and physical reasons.
Life is much more complex, and i really hope u get a grasp of this someday.

Have a good day smile

Sad really. How can a person that thinks that way be happy even for a second?

I also wonder why he thinks it wont bring bad karma to a mountain lion that kills and eats a deer or a pair of coyotes feasting on an antelope kid.

I don't understand how those folks reach the conclusion that it is unatural for a human to be a predator.

If you believe you don't kill animals in today's society you are either a hypocrite or an idiot.

Trappers are neither. Everything dies, its just a matter of when. Killing is the worst part of trapping, but we know why we do it, and don't have to virtue signal like this idiot to look ourselves in the mirror.

Enjoy the vote Joe.

My question is? Why were animals put on the earth. This person most likely does not know why a cow gives milk, and we take the milk for our own use. BAD PEOPLE.

Paul,

Thanks for the post.

At least they were being completely honest (their words). They begin their email with that intro.

That's a catch phrase all of us use when we profess our faith in _____, (insert whatever you declare to be "completely" and "honest"). Those categories are rapidly expanding in our culture, many times because we want to run with the herd, not necessarily because we have a clue about the herd's philosophy.

All of us temper our "completely honest" categories throughout our life.

I would hope this person finds deeper meaning than what they mention, although most of us are animal lovers. It's just in how we define the words we use in language is all.

Blessings,
Mark

Between the use of "U" and the misuse of "Brake" I would think it is a younger person.

What is a "back link" on the site?
Did you go and check your brake lines?

Maybe us trapping These critters is karma getting back at the animal for the evil things they have done to other animals

Not surprised. Saw a lot of similar cases in my wildlife job years ago. One that really stuck in my mind is a lady asked us to stop teal season because hummingbirds migrate on the backs of blue wing teal. She was dead serious.

I have had these conversations with many of them. They truly live in alternative realities. Almost always, they have what I call " new age" views, which are really very old, basically all things connected, animals and people have the same spirits, karma, etc.
It's really a world view issue. You can not change their minds. Really no use trying.

It's called pantheism and it's a theology growing worldwide. Buddhism, Hinduism, and Taoism we might have heard of, but there are many different pantheistic cults who believe god is in all and all is in god. Avatar (the movie), for example, was made by devout pantheists and was a box office $$$ cha-chinger here in North America. There are countless video games with this theme that folks are playing all-day, everyday. It makes sense, this would be their vision of the world we live in.

Blessings,
Mark

So if I am a trapper and have a loving family, excellent health and all the material things I need, I will keep in mind that there are no coincidences in life. Need to trap more I guess, to continually improve my life.

At our Farmer's market my wife and I sell frozen fruit and honey bars. I had a vegan asking me to change to sugar as the sweetener because the production of honey involves the enslavement of honeybees.

The same thinking of this fellow thinks I.

My neighbor girl found a baby mouse in a parking lot. So she felt she needed to save it, ended up being a kangaroo rat that she would take to the vet on a regula basis. Then one day she was about in tears when one of my chickens got hit by a car in front of her house.
These people are definitely crazy if they think there doing Wildlife any favors.

Paul, didn't he leave his name? You should have listed it if he did like newspaper editorials who won't publish your comments without your name. Though, it's not surprising that he wouldn't. He seems like an intelligent person with no common sense. He's one of those that place the life of an animal above that of a human or "human" as he put it.

He maintains that an animal has a soul. He sounds like a person who relies on scientific evidence to make a point. Does he have reliable scientific evidence that animals have a soul? There is biblical proof that man does.


Growing old should have taken longer.

If only I had read this before our blind limited out on Teal this morning. I found a $20 bill at the boat ramp, maybe that was my punishment since there are no coincidences.
Hard to believe there are people like this out there but they are - seen it first hand.

Sad!! So when a critter eats the family pet no big deal?? No, these are the people that scream for the government to do something when it happens and use our tax dollars to do it. When it could be a father or grandfather with a young kid doing it for free.

There are a lot of people in this country that have been misguided and lost touch with reality at no fault of their own. It's only going to become a larger problem. I think we need to approach the problem understanding most are unknowing and truly misguided. A group of them are probably not bad people but just a product of their environment.

Most of the time it doesn't come natural to me but I'll tell you a little story. I know a young lady thats in her early 20s now. Without getting into too much details , I met here when she was about twelve. Took her fishing, hunting and horse back riding a lot back then, almost like an adopted daughter too me. Sweet and smart young lady that has a huge heart but went through some tough things growing up that have left her searching for answers despite growing up in a Christian home. She been drawn into a believe system that scares me and her family right now. Still a sweet and smart lady but is kind of lost and searching and has been drawn down the wrong path.

Lets hope she finds her direction again. One of my foster sons was aimless for years and even got locked up a time or too. Of course I worried but at the time he wasn't asking me for my opinions so I tried to bit my tongue.

Fast forward 10 years and he now has his own son. He sent me a message soon after and thanked me for my 'broad foot and narrow mind" approach to helping him grow up. He stated he had never taken life too seriously until he created one of his own but that all the pieces fell into place at that point. I'm sure you can imagine how proud I am of him!

After reading this I felt a little guilty. For about 4 hrs this morning my wife and I have a fiddling cricket under the wall board. Finally after daylight he crawled out about 3 ft from the wall and my wife can't get around quickly (probably bad karma from eating all those little furry creatures in the past) and very excitedly was yelling for me to get that xxx, I jumped up and stomped him bare footed. Now after reading this I felt guilty for almost a second, but hey my wife made me do it, lol.

Heck I took a bunch of pills before I ever set a trap. I got started late. Been hunting and fishing my whole life. Spent a lot of my adult life defending our great country all over the world. I guess karma has a weird sense of humor. LOL Ill pray for that individual that they receive enlightenment and peace in their life.

I wonder what would go through their mind if they were to lose $30,000 in timber to beaver damage or get swept away by flash flooding caused by a beaver dam that fails. I wonder if theyd still wish death to beaver trappers.


I wonder if they use perfume containing beaver castor.

Was weighing out at a quarry a couple years ago. Girl in the scale house was standing outside squawking about a mouse when I pulled up. Scared to go inside. It was up on a counter with some Halloween candy. So I mushed it and tossed it outside. She was mad, I mean really mad, cause I killed it before I threw it out.

Paul. I want to thank you for sharing the letter. It is very important for the younger trappers and a reminder to us seasoned trappers. How irrational the anti trapper is. Cult like. Also extremely dangerous. That is why a lot of the animal rights groups where list as domestic terrorist. Very important to take the time to vote in elections. Research your candidates

You should have asked him/her, If a wild animal was attacking a human, who gets the club?
Trophies for everyone!
All meat comes from the grocery store, where no animals were harmed.

On the cover of The Fur Taker magizine every month says it best "The cruelest thing we can do to wildlife is fail to manage it. People like this speak nothing about an animal starving or freezing to death by mange or suffering from distemper. They know nothing about livestock deprivation, roads and woodlands flooded out by beavers, fox and raccoons ravaged by rabies or pets disappearing. They won't acknowledge that the vast majority of State departments of wildlife support trapping as a means to maintain healthy populations of the animals we harvest, let alone the important data collected from trapper activities every season. If they really had strong beliefs to the welfare of animals, it's unfortunate they don't educate themselves, but that seems to the case with so many these days - ignorance. Thanks for sharing it Paul; good reminder to take a kid trapping!

I've tried maybe twice to talk sense into people like that. Then I gave up. It's an uphill battle you can't fix it.

And it had no clue what this site was about? Reading and comprehension is so missing in todays educational system.
I wonder if my trapping deeds were retro active? Did the bad stuff in life that happened to me happen because life knew that I would trap later in life? Or was that for trapping as a kid? What about before trapping as a kid and breaking my wrist playing football? What about the Docs saying Id never be able to play sports because of some issue I had when I was a baby? I have so many questions now...
If I keep trapping until I die, is that why I die? Do non-trappers (non-murderers) live forever?
I may not be able to sleep tonight. These thoughts have me really wanting to stare a caught coyote down the barrel of my .22 revolver and decide if the pull of the trigger knocks a few years off my life now. Does getting paid to remove a few critters add more heartache and misery to life? Maybe if I paid someone for every critter caught I could add years back or even break even on the taking of a critters life.
Thanks Mr.Dobbins for what Im sure will be a sleepless night now...

I have seen some fishing videos where the comments were even more ridiculous. The comments were chastising the anglers after they released the fish by saying that they took the fish away from their families and caused them much fear and discomfort. One of the videos was a young boy who was extremely excited while catching a lake trout through the ice and the other was about a muskie that was caught and released through the ice. I sure hope all the fish recovered happily and returned safely to their families. (sarcasm font)


I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!

All of us are dinosaurs in a land who will turn to dust and 10,000 years from now aliens from the planet Nendor, that capture earthlings in the not so big cosmic battle of 2066, will put our encrusted bones and 550's in a museum with little labels under the specimen that reads: "they lived 1,000,000 years ago" anyway,

so I say we just trap like it's 1999!
cool

Recently a friend was kindly, but passionately trying to make me understand his thinking that;
Television has made us all much smarter.

I was hung up the whole time he was talking (and getting a bit red faced at me because I was not quite grasping his argument), thinking to myself;
About what exactly?

Filling up the crevices of our hard drive might store more stuff for later retrieval, but I told him; "You're gonna have to help me here and define smarter. Cause.... I think the brain is about how it always is and always will be."

He walked away redder faced, muttering something about how I am not figuring it all out correctly (or some such).

I smiled and hollered as he walked, "Maybe I need to watch more television, you think?"
I got the standard answer of those who think others are stupid.

He tossed back, "whatever man."

See how I irritate my friends.

Paul - thank you for protecting the integrity of your website for those of us who contribute, enjoy, and benefit. Might it be time to permit only registered persons view the material?

I once saw a quote from the PETA organization where they stated it was immoral to take milk from a cow or honey from a honeybee.

I told that to a local dairy farmer who said it shows how stupid these people really are. It would be immoral NOT to take milk from a cow because it would cause a number of diseases such as mastitis for one if you didn't.

It seems they don't consider that immoral. Also shows they place a higher value on an animal than a person.

Head to Wall Sd and take exit 127 and go south and just thru the dip in the road follow the trail. Open one gate and continue about a mile you will see the large town. Try to stay on the trail. Good luck

Well it seems last year Hanoi Jane got into a hiss with a vegan protester that was interrupting a climate change strike. Jane said the climate was more important than not eating meat. Jane may be on to something there. Those cows are destroying our climate and just maybe she thinks the solution is to eat our way out of it. Eat those cows and stop this climate warming, lol. She is surely a visionary, that was last year and now the west is burning up. Couldn't possibly be all that old growth turning into a tender box.

Did someone mention crazy ?

It always washes upon our shores from across the pond. There are now countless online FundMe efforts in Europe and Australia that routinely raise over $100,000 each time they feature a pig that needs a home. Edgar Pig received $162,458 as an example. Edgar nows lives a pig life. His story is average these days as entrepreneurs scout out more pigs, and sheep, and goats for FundMe requests. The effort is picking up steam, and online sights now routinely show the scores of "wealthy" animals popping up. It is not uncommon to raise nearly $100,000 if the animal resembles a movie character in some fashion.

Might be a business opportunity for trappers? Catch that mink. Show his friendly face and see to it that he's cared for like Edgar Pig and his pals.

Most people are anti trapping based on their emotions When confronted by the facts they have never heard them before so they go back to what they have been told . I had a friend a twork that would hassle me when ever we would talk about deer hunting during lunch One day another coworked ask me how I made out and the freind started say Bambi Kille rThe HGreat Hunter Did you getRoudolph I said well I can't help but notice you are eating a hamburg He said So waht does tha have to do with any thing I said the difference is I killed my own and you get some one else to do it for you He commented something And that was the ensd of it I thoguht But a few days later he stopped me in the plant and said he had never thought about it like that I remarked that was not mad about just saying how I see it.

I have friends that say there is no way they could kill an animal. they say they don't see how I can. they don't shun me because I do, they just say they couldn't do it.

to people that respond the way this person did I just tell them mother nature is a lot more cruel to animals than trappers or hunters could ever be.

I have seen raccoons that could hardly walk suffering terribly from distemper.
I have seen coyotes dying a painful death due to mange.
everything has to be controlled. hunting and trapping is a lot more humane than mother nature.

I like to put a little different twist on it and I don't claim it as my own because it's something I adopted from an extensive article I read on the topic. I tell people that it's man (Or humankind to be politically correct) who, through population growth and property development, is the encroacher on wildlife habitat and populations. As the superior intelligent being it is man's absolute obligation as the encroacher to manage wild life populations, for the benefit of all species. .

If you Google GoFundMe you will see that pet FundMe sites are quickly becoming a booming business. Don't you wish some folks would take care of their kids like they take care of their pets.

All major militant abortion advocacy groups support militant animal rights groups and vice versa as far as I've heard and read.
Worship animals but kill the unborn humans.
It's a religion to save the planet and it's bad to the core.

Paul,

This respondent has a serious case of "Bambi-itus" and absolutely no idea of the real world. Of course he/she is right and knows it. All you have to do is ask them.

Completely out of touch with reality. Scary that such people walk the streets, drive vehicles, etc without constant adult supervision.

I'm pretty sure I picked this up from this site. Every time someone has given me grief on other forums about how cruel trapping or hunting these innocent creatures is I post this pic. I've never had a rebuttal to it, it shuts them up every time.

Is it possible for someone to change their thinking and believe like we believe? grin

Bossman has great insight into such things.

After all, Bossman is named after a historical guy that lived two millennia ago, who had a life changing event occur on the road to Damascus.

Let them in Paul and we'll be cordial.

Have you ever heard of catch and release mortality? They dont always make it back to thier families alive or healthy. We caught a trout the other day; blind in one eye, both mouth corners damaged and the lower throat distorted. Real skinny! I released it by law bleeding from its new wound.

Okay, I'll let him in, and he can stay as long as things remain cordial. From his email, I don't think he'll be the problem.

It's really a world view issue. You can not change their minds. Really no use trying.


It's called pantheism and it's a theology growing worldwide. Buddhism, Hinduism, and Taoism we might have heard of, but there are many different pantheistic cults who believe god is in all and all is in god. Avatar (the movie), for example, was made by devout pantheists and was a box office $$$ cha-chinger here in North America. There are countless video games with this theme that folks are playing all-day, everyday. It makes sense, this would be their vision of the world we live in.

Blessings,
Mark


Thanks Mark. It explains a lot of the warped perspectives that I've run across lately.
