What got me on T-Man was when I was first getting into trapping last year and I started doing research online when I came across this website. I probably stalked it for 2 months before I joined it.

It's good to read and share information and pictures with a group that are all interested in the same thing.

Was looking for good solid information from serious like minded people, which then turned into a great friendly base to share and ask ideas about most anything.

Some times though you have to have a pretty strong back bone to read some of the stuff placed here though about anything, but this area (Trapper Talk) is for free thought not just trapping, which is a very difficult subject for a lot of people to grasp LOL

Stumbled across it on accident when the chat was going strong. Felt at home more like around the fire like at convention.


If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom - go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!

I read and re-read everything I could find on this site for probably 2 years before I joined. Lots and lots of good info here.

I started hanging out here years ago because I don't get much time anymore for conventions or rendezvous so it's the best of both worlds.

Got on way back near the beginning.

Was a great place to share info and chat with other trappers across the country

One winter when I wasn't busy enough, sitting around too much and somewhere between melancholy and depressed, I had the thought "maybe I should start trapping." I read boxes of hand-me-down American Trapper mags as a kid but had never done it. I started looking for info online and, of course, discovered T-man. I lurked for awhile before finding a thread I could contribute to (about construction, not trapping), so I made an account.

More than just a stellar resource on trapping, T-man has blessed me immensely as a community of mostly like-minded people.

This site was and is a great place to learn. I started out with a dozen traps for my place. Now I have way too many traps, trap thousands of acres and am teaching my sons. I learn something here, in the shop and in the field everyday.

The archives, strictly trapping and fur handling forums are the real places to learn. This forum is just good for entertainment and sometimes meaningful discussion.

Good way to learn, there is a world of knowledge on this site.
Never know what you can learn, everything from rust proofing your pickup frame
On down to better ways to catch critters
Make sure you share some pictures huh.

It started out with me researching some traps but now of course I hang around for the memes and top notch medical advice. Oh and I've even made a friend or two over the years.
