Nope….just my hardwood walking stick…just a water trapper. But seeing more bears in the hood ….might change my mind,this year.

Had to chase a bear away from the chickens this morning with the help of the dogs. So yes I do cary one when I am not in bed.

Unless you have had issues in the past, I can't say it's not optimal to to not have a gin of some sort on the line.

Same, minus the Glock.

I rarely need the .22 but it's nice just in case.

Me too. And that 410 will put down a trapped coyote with no fur damage.

Almost always have a gun of some type on me, sitting here at the computer drinking coffee I have a 357 in my pocket. Carry a 22 revolver usually for dispatch, or occasionally a 22 or 22 mag rifle if I want it to double as a pot gun (while I've shot a lot of grouse with a 22 pistol, I've also missed a lot, not the worlds best pistol shot). Anything else carried on the line is for some other purpose than trapping, whether it is a deer rifle because deer season is open, a rifle because I might try and call in a wolf or coyote, or gun I am bringing along just to test a new load in at some point where I can target shoot along the line.
At one time we used to have to use a centerfire if dispatching wolves with a firearm (stupid rule, because they were classified as big game; since changed years ago) and I carried a little 22 Bee Imp. or since it was a beautiful little blued and curly maple gun, a stainless Mini-14 if weather was bad. If we still had that rule I would carry my Contender pistol with either a 22 Hornet or Bee barrel on it today, but I didn't own that gun back when the law was in effect.

I bring one everywhere, at least a handgun for sure. On the trapline either a .22 or 17 in the truck but I have a defensive handgun with me all the time.

Nothing for water trapping. Although I should because stuff happens.

my daughter worked a nursing home for a while , learned you don't walk into a particular patients room unannounced even if the door is open it is very possible he won't have any thing on

If I’m wearing clothes, there’s a pistol somewhere. On the trapline, there’s always a .22 with me as well.


The deadliest weapon in the world is a Marine and his rifle.
