Trapping is an everyday thing in season for months at a time. I don't hunt everyday for months at a time. Maybe when I retire...


Eh...wot?

I try to live a balanced life style, and spend equal time on each, with fishing also in the mix. Although, who's keeping track. It's not like I have to go to work at a certain time. grin

Trapping has taken a back seat this year. The Boy is 9 and all about hunting so this year we will trap but hunting is tops.


Life sure is tough when you don't learn from the mistakes of others.

Hunting season lasts from Sept-Feb...trapping season from Dec-Feb. plantation trapping from Feb-June. I guess about equal amounts. I sleep June-August, lol.

Trapping.
Definitely trapping.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Trapping x 10 and I hint quite a bit. Fur shed adds to the difference by two fold


Everything the left touches it destroys

I used to hunt bear a lot for about 15 years between the mid 80's to around early 00's.
I would take between 4 and 6 a year in the spring.
Now I pass up a lot and just take the odd small one for meat(I keep the hides also).
I carry a short barrelled combo 410/22mag when trapping in the fall to pot meat like grouse.
Used to hunt a lot more back in the day,but always trapped more than hunt.
