the kid got 5 bucks a coon on a deal with the farm possum also paid 5 bucks a head the old man hates possums he lost a horse long time ago and blames it on possum dung and urine on the hay bales

best money coon brought all year , didn't even have to skinnum just make sure they never looked at a chicken again and text the owner pictures for proof of death

he made 200 dollars in a week

could have made it in fewer days if he had set more traps but who thought one barn yard would net 40

that is what the kid made , I have no idea what I spent , sometimes it is better not to keep to close of track

America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

Several years ago the boys and I took the fur check and split it evenly between their 529 college savings plans.
The last flew years though we took the check and tried to pick out something nice off the menu at McDonald's.

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

You obviously are a long ways from following old school rules.

Might I ask what your total income was last year?
What does your portfolio look liked?
Do you own your own house?
What is y our current debt line?
When is the last time you had sex?
Were you up to the task?

Probably one of my better vices. Something I look forward to doing. Enjoy doing. And an abrupt life style change. From 24/7 phones, emails and other interruptions to solitude and welcoming isolation. My double life. Stress relief has value. I began trapping for money and discovered I couldn’t live without it.

I don't think so. I'm not asking real personal info and not asking the hardcore trapping guys. Just the hobby guys.

1. Not enough.
2 stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.
3. No, the bank owns it. I still have a mortgage.
4. No idea. I am debt free other than my home and some hospital bills though. Doing good..
5. Wit........oh nevermind
6. Yes.


No Jab.

Yes one of my favorite forms of exercise too.

Couldn't put a money number on it, time with the kids outdoors passing on a tradition is priceless and I would lose folded money on that any day

I made just as much trapping problem beavers than I have with the fur. But haven't sold my late coyotes yet.
