I am willing to let it go. Maybe I should try and start trusting people’s word more. Maybe in the long run it does not matter. 875 coon is still impressive. Probably to most people it is for sure. Most have a hard time wrapping their mind around big catches. Glad I can. LLL

After reading only part of this thread I have decided that if I ever make a record breaking catch I surely won't share the numbers.
The whole competition with other trappers over who is the best is a real turn-off.
It's not what trapping is supposed to be about.


Right now I’m having amnesia and déjà vu at the same time. I think I’ve forgotten this before.

And on top of all this he is giving back by giving a free ride along after a free educational instruction. To a young trapper. Which i think is a huge accomplishment in its self. More than anyone else can say

This was never about who is better or who caught more. If you thought that you need to reread it. LLL

Either you trust people or you don't.

How can any of us actually "prove" what we caught.

Consistancy, posting daily pictures, I actually posted my entire shipment to fur harvesters and NAFA one year because several were calling me out on the number of 3x coon I trapped. Mike M. would verify what I sold him if I said ok. Like BOCO said fur check receipt. I never left out a season and they are all on the web to see if you dig for them. Most are archived on ITT I would imagine. I will have to look some time.

Trust me many never "trusted" me. I proved a lot of folks wrong. Sometimes that was the most fun of all. LLL

You will have to take it up with someone else because it makes no difference to me how many beaver you done. I am not in that club. LLL

Numbers have to be taken in context, a larger mink catch is possible in MN or IA as compared to PA or ME. I don't like to see trappers think they aren't as good because they don't catch as much as someone else. Everyone has different family situations and different goals.

If you are out trapping in an honest and professional manner you are as much a trapper as anyone else. Plenty of fur for everyone, nobody has to fail in trapping for someone else to succeed. Certainly there are varying degrees of skill, but an enjoyable experience on the trap line is available to anyone, regardless of how many animals they trap. As I have said before, numbers don't mean much, except to the person that did them.

Gerald, thank you for your humility and candor. I couldn't agree more.

No i made sure i said it here so u can defend urself. And from what i understand, its not that you “wont” defend yourself, its that you “cant” post there anymore because of antics like uve displayed here today knocking people down. This display of yours has been pathetic. Seems like someones mad the American Trapper didnt just do an article about them so you got online to try and knock a decent guy down. Pathetic. But the dude was right. The dead horse has been beaten enough.

All I will say to this is you don't know what I know and you don't know what you don't know either. It has nothing whatsoever to do with anything you mentioned. I just know that after two years you all are still talking about me over there and actually you do it quite often. Some good but mostly bad. The funny thing is your boss likes to say that people should not be talked about behind their back but lets it go anytime over there. It's ok. You don't even know me. LLL
