As many know I have had many thousand coon seasons. I have posted my successes every time on Facebook and other social media. I wonder if that was someone's goal, would you not post it on a forum and document it if you made it known you were trying? After all if that was my goal and I set out to do so I would certainly document it wouldn't I? I would never want anyone to be able to cast doubt . Not saying anyone would question such a feat. Lots of folks have done it after all. If I was trying and done it for the first time I would have posted it everywhere. It would not be about conceit or bragging but about pride in going so for me anyways at least the first time. When you do it ten times in a row and several times double it I can see it not being worth mentioning at that point. Let's here your thoughts. It might be interesting to think about and look into those who have said they did but never posted about it on their social media. LLL

I guess if it were your goal, and you met it, it would impress you. Why not post it. I’d say only good would come out of it. People would want to learn from you and you could take that opportunity to teach. I’ve had some 400 coon seasons and thought it was decent. 1,000 is a bunch of pandas.

Nothing wrong touting your success. I have respect for those who put up large catch numbers of any species. Doubt usually comes from those who envy such success.

Or for some reason you do not mention it until a couple seasons later. LLL

I enjoy any thread about big catches. Hope any member who makes large catches posts and allows us to learn, maybe. Also entertaining. Haven't seen anything from PSB1011 (hope I got that right), who would catch a thousand reds.
Looking forward to more from you LL.

Lltrapper if you trapped a 1000 coon this coming fall, do you think you would turn a profit? It's a serious question. I don't know if it would work with high fuel prices and low fur prices. Although if your coon populations are as high there as they are here. Idk.

I am not on facebook. If it is look how smart and good they are then I am not impressed. If they are trying to say they did this and others may be interested than I usually am. What impresses me is when you run across the ones that have amazing feats/goals met and they don't tell anyone you just have to happen to stumble across them.

Nothing wrong with bragging about a large harvest of fur.

I would share it for sure. I would be proud of that accomplishment, anyone who’s ever trapped knows those numbers only come with hundreds, if not thousands of hours of hard work in a season, not to mention the knowledge and skill set you’d need to make it happen.

Right now trapping is like any other hobby. Like gambling. You only play as long as you can afford to play. You should have no expectation of making money because in reality you will loose your shirt. If you have two shirts then go ahead and play. LLL

Good question Steven. If I did it I would have let you know at the time. Kind of like being assaulted and never reporting it until a year or two later. LLL

I can see positives and negatives to both sides. I know people who like there successes to be known and I know guys who are very successful who would rather keep it too themselves. Sometimes it sure can be done for the wrong reasons and sometimes it can just come across wrong.
I know a guy on this forum that can put up huge daily catches of coyotes (he only goes hard for his 2 week vacation)(and does it year after year) and has never posted one thing about coyote trapping on here. One of the reasons is he's just that humble of a guy.

I am one of the people that don't like it to be known, part of the reason I don't know why, but the other part is one of the people I respect the most in this world that has taught me a lot about trapping, hunting, etc. I consistently surpass his yearly catch and he is very proud of it. It takes a lot of work to catch large numbers of dogs in our country. I wouldn't do anything ever to hurt his feelings or pride. So when someone asks how many I've caught so far I always tell them 1 or 2 and leave it at that.

Not sure I would use facebook for such an announcement. I would probably make a thread here on trapperman.com with history of progress toward your goal and pictures for education and other trapper's enjoyment. JMT

But you would document it and let folks known right? After all 900 don't put you in the 1000 club nor does 700 on other attempts that a guy would post but in between those seasons you hit 1000 and you say nothing??? Just does not seem right. LLL

Why bother to show off your success unless you are selling a product and use your success to market that product. Keep a picture album for yourself and friends (if you have any) I'm sure we have fewer than we think. there will probably be more people that bad mouth you than to give you credit for your accomplishment. My self I say Rock on Brother. Great job.
