Just trap for fun ( try stuff beyond all you gotta do is) instead of trying to be a pro anymore?

These days i just trap critters that are after my chickens and could hurt my cats. I also don't worry how big of a hole a round makes when I shoot a coyote


I do all my own stunts ..... but never intentionally .................. Let's go Brandon

Only reason I trap is fun. My days of getting up before daylight, hiking the woods and climbing trees are over. It took me a long time to realize why my Dad only squirrel hunted, no pressure, just relaxing. My trapping is the same way to me. I squirrel hunt while I trap most times.

I definitely donít try to be a pro. Iíd like to say I trap for fun, but realistically itís more about the lifestyle. There are a lot of days when Iím trapping and itís not fun at all! But, at the end of the day, I love it.

Muskrats are the only fun trapping anymore. The marsh owner doesnít care if I catch them all or none.

Itís a passion for me and I go as hard at it as I can. That being said I trap coons for fun. Skunks and coyotes are a different story.

I go into it with the thought of not making any money. So far I've been quite successful at it.

With the way things are currently I trap to scratch the itch unless it's beaver trapping, I'll only do that if I'm paid.


You state I reply, you reply, I don't reply... don't think I coincide l just don't think your reply was worth my replying....

Whenever I encounter a gal who goes beyond the stage of idle chatter, I have to wonder if its due to my strong-jawed, rugged good looks, or they found out about my former teen modeling career, or my trapping prowess, or my bald head. (All chicks dig bald heads. The ones who deny it are either lesbians, liars, or both.)
What was the question again?

Trap for money? Hang on let me think way way back. Yes before we lost out live coyote market I usrled to spend less on trapping at the end of the year.

No I have never made a profit just offset some cost. Still more ahead than hunting on cost. Especially if you figured my hour drives to take my boys squirrel and deer hunting. Esp if you include the out of state deer hunt this weekend. Buying some cows and fence would be much cheaper for sure..

So I don't trap or hunt for profit so it must be to teach the kids and enjoyment of being outdoors. And reduce problem critter's on the farm. I guess that could be for profit. They never seen to get the chickens that need culled but the young ones that just started laying or meat birds ready to be butchered.
