Helped out a kid last year found out later him and his dad started trapping the same property because they had a in with the landowners son in law. Even gave the kid lure and urine to catch his first yote. I went to trap some rats last spring and the son in law says them other guys are going to trap it?

It was getting late so I asked him to check to see if they were going to trap it still he said they still planned on trapping it but they never did, I told the guy I donít think they even have the supplies to trap it.

Kid calls today looking for supplies Iím like nope not going to happen. He can have the place I also have the adjoining property so Iím covered.

From here on out i would look at the property the kid never trapped as the source of what you catch next door.

I like to help out, especially kids, but I don't want to get dumped on. That said they may not even realize they are out of line. Maybe. Might be worth mentioning.

Same here. Tore up shoulder one season and my cousin went around sweet talking all my landowners. Solid 10 yote a year guy. Luckily I only lost one property. But it was one were goats get killed. Cousin quit trapping and I informed that landowner it was now 100.00 a yote. Havenít heard from him. Hmm Also quit trapping within 3 miles of him. He will call someday and with gas Iím thinking 150.00 a yote now. Some people.




I'm itchin' to see a coyote twitchin'.

More trappin' and less yappin'.

They are claiming to be trappers but they violate about every ethics rule going Iím not promoting that kind of behavior they tried the same thing with the deer hunters there they move here and seem not very popular already.

The first words to my ethics class is donít take other peoples spots or share property as no good would come of it.

Law Dog, think about the people you have helped. You can only do what's right and from there where the cards fall the cards fall.

They definitely think they are entitled to anything they want it looks like the kid texted me back said he can get supplies other places and his Dad wants to talk to me, well OK Iím not hard to find come on over. LOL

Lazy, stupid or narcissistic I will see when I meet with them.

Could be that it's the landowner running everybody else away in preference for these guys. Just a possibility.

I like helping people but it's cost more good property than it's worth. Especially when it comes to deer hunting.

Yep some people will use you till there is nothing left, than just move on to someone else.

I know the feeling today, did a beaver job a couple years ago today I stopped and wanted to
Use my payment just wanted to hunt some deer and got told no.

I reminded him of that and he still said no, so no more hand shake Free B's for him.
He will have beaver again, an if he wants me it will cost Deerly lol


Let me sugar coat this

My younger brothers-in-law did that to me. I've also seen older trappers take on a kid and teach him to trap and the same thing happens. There should be better parenting but some of those kids don't have parents worth a hoot.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

Its nit just with hunting and fishing. Trash low quality people take advantage and use others in many areas. I had "friends" for a few years that I helped out every time they had an issue without being asked. The husband can not do anything. Not even hook up a washing machine. Fixed their fences, horse watering systems , bush hogged, mowed, installed applinces, and on and on. Untill they wanted to go in and buy the land behind me. Agrements were made then they backed out and cut me out of the deal. Well made the price so high changing the agreement i could no longer afford it.

Lying users are everywhere.

Did that for guy having coyote problems in the spring killing lambs, caught the pair and said no charge, see you in the fall. November rolls around and I stop for permission and he said they don't allow trapping. I said, what do you think I did in the spring ?
