This must be new math or something. If you loose money trapping you have nothing but time and money spent. When you deer hunt and are successful you have meat to eat. Trapping for fun is not a message we need to get out. It will someday be used to end trapping. Wish people would get that. LLL


Vs what? Trapping for money? You think a liberal or anti cares how much money you sell your coon for? Theywill only see your piles of “death” (which i appreciate btw) in pics on here. 99 percent of the people on here trap for fun. Even if they do make money, they could make a lot more doing many other things. Im guessing that would include you as well. Tradition and enjoyment are HUGE reasons to trap.

I agree DWC, I enjoy trapping and wish I could do more. I have been at it for a long time and am still learning. Hopefully some day I get real good at it grin

Sold a few hundred in put up fur and castor. Made a few hundred in nuisance work and had way too many furs tanned by tanneries and myself. Oh did I mention I loved every minute of it and wouldn't trade my time doing it for anything in the world

Its amazing how many trappers still dont know that it has nothing to do with anti's.
It is all about how the general public(liberal and conservative,by the way) percieves our industry that will decide if the fur industry continues or not.
The antis do a better job of influencing the general public with their lies about our industry,than we do getting the truth out to them.

As long as the fur gets used it is all right. Hate to tell you but alot of people out there head hunt deer and the meat does go to waste. People throw out freezer burned meat all the time. Obviously you trap for money and not one bit of pleasure. Your posts are constantly pointing out that we should not trap because of the low prices. Did trapping end after the market bombed in the eighties? Not at all. If we all quit trapping then for sure we will lose our rights.

The only real money I have made during my last 41 years of trapping has been in the financial market. I have posted the S& P value on the day our season started and then chose March 1st as the closure date for me. Not many of those 41 years did I lose money and those years I did the other years made up the losses easily. As the old saying on SNL from years ago "trapping has been berry, berry good to me". lol

The message is what he is talking about. Not the reason you Cindy's trap. Your message is "I kill animals for giggles!" The general Public does not support your giggles. Even if you trap for giggles, never admit it. The official story is " I trap to support my family or manage wildlife or something the general public supports."

$800 coyote bounty. $942 from FHA . Minus $900 gas and supplies. $842 profit split between me and my buddy equals $421 each. Approximately 165 hours trapping and hunting. Hourly pay about $2.50/hr. The same as I made back in 1970. There are however 9 Western cats at FHA that have not sold yet. That might up the wage a few bucks per hour. If they ever sell cats.
