Exactly how would it be "extra" money?

I'm on record for hoping for $8/gallon gasoline.

I will set more traps but only because I enjoy it, with the full understanding that save for maybe my bobcats there will be no money to be made on my line this year. I may tan a bunch of fur for my own personal use. This year I will trap because Iím a trapper and for no other reason

Make me set less, probably a lot less.

Do you have a source/link for this info?

Some analysts are prediciting $6.00 gas by August. Couple that with joe's record inflation, and I (and many of us) might be unemployed when the economy comes to a screeching halt. Guess I'll run a walking line for something to do.

Easy...what you spend comes out of OUR account, and what you make goes into MY account!

I will probably target more of those 1 dollar coons, while improving upon my coyote/beaver skills!

You canít be losing money and expect to make it up with volume. You just lose even more.
