I enjoy the barn photos. Not sure why anyone would have their nose out of joint with them.

By merely mentioning the plank in my eye you proclaim a plank in your own. That is why Job had it right to begin with. LLL

I can't argue with that. Why I usually don't comment very much on religion threads. I certainly have no right to judge. But no one does, really, besides God. But because, like everyone, I do judge people at times, I tend not to post about how great of a Christian I am... because I'm not.

You mentioned you donít go to church because of people like me. Interesting to think that there are sinners and hypocrites in the church. I believe that is where sinners and hypocrites should be. There are no good people. Just those who are forgiven daily by grace. I never claimed to be perfect or righteous. I know how I should be but fall short daily. Being a Christian puts a target on oneís back. Right away half or more want to point out your ďhypocrisy ď as they know a couple verses that all nonbelievers know. It would not matter how righteous you were they hate the thought that you are a Christian. So half hate because of my faith before I ever say a word about anything else. LLL

I think there should be a federal "Coon Commission" to look into all coon trappers numbers. When we find those who have fudged thier numbers we can burn them on the planks.

Only seasoned cat trappers will be allowed on the Commission for they are more virtuous.

Talking to some locals at the NTA, most seemed to think a 1000 coon season would be easy based on what they see at night with a thermal. The numbers they were talking were staggering.

There is no competition anymore so I would agree. When I trapped my first 1000 coon season there were four guys in every row and they were all top lot trappers. Killing a thousand is the easy part. Taking care of the catch is something completely different and even today would be the one thing that shuts the door on many trying. Good time to do it if you wanted to but you are going to catch as many as you can afford. Zero profit to be made is also a show stopper. That is why I let a 11 season run end. It was not worth what it would cost to do it.

I never came close to a thousand. 100 in two weeks wears me out and I am tired of coon trapping. Starts to be more work than pleasure.

I've got alot to learn myself, I know this, but I feel it's my obligation to pass on what I do know, and the amount of young people that have reached out to me, seeking advice, and wanting to get into our sport has really inspired me to keep doing what I'm doing. I met a few people this past week thst are very quiet with what they do, and catch literally hundreds of many species of animals in just 3 months. I was very fortunate to pick the brains of those people for a few hours. As far as answering this question, if your here to toot your horn I'd say keep it quiet, if your here to help the next generation, share whatever you are willing to share!

Whatís your YouTube channel Iíd love to watch. Nevermind I found it you now have one more subscriber love it!

I don't have the shop or freezer space for 1000 anything but maybe rats but I do think 1000 coon would be doable if one were so inclined. Trash Pandas are everywhere and if I had 100 DPs I bet I could do it in a month or less but problem is the coon wouldn't even pay for the traps.


Wish I had more time to trap....

Not to mention no competition. I could do it in a couple weeks. I have when there were 4 other good trappers in the same right of way. My suggestion has always been to get a pair of hip boots and a sharp knife and skinning machine. DPs are fine but they fall of to a 20% catch rate in a couple days. Water sets just keep on getting better.

Keep videos and a catch record. I will be watching too while fishing and hunting. LLL
