Finally finished out this last season. Once again I had a blast. Ran hard for the first 3 weeks. By far the majority of my catch came during that time frame minus the beaver.

What is pictured is most of what I caught minus a bunch of coon.

I will tell you all in advance this was a bunch of work. At the busiest point I had about 140 sets out. I push myself pretty hard. After the second week of the season I had to get a cortisone shot in each elbow.

I was in contact with a few other trappers during that big push and would like to thank them for the encouragement.

Congratulations Ack on a fine catch.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.
