4 more days until my 15th birthday, I don't really know what to do since nothing fun is going on this weekend, nothing trapping related is going on except for a small trapping education course for youth or new trappers but I don't really fit the description of new trapper anymore.

If you learn 1 new thing it might be worth it someday you might be the teacher.


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

Yeah I try to go to every demo type event/class I can make it to, I can't remember even one where I didn't pick up a tip or trick. Plus ypu will have other trappers to talk to and the instructors/demonstrators want to share their info so pick their brains.

Or grab a fishing pole or shotgun and hit some small streams and ponds and scout for the upcoming seaaon. Heck you might get some bait while you're at it.


Life sure is tough when you don't learn from the mistakes of others.

When I was 15... I was playing Hockey 24/7 . Eat and breathed hockey. The only trouble was...someones parents had to get us to the rink ! Played for the Manchester NH Midget ...Travel Team. Had a blast. Then played High School too.

I didnít even know trapping ..was a thing ..at 15. But I knew my way around a Hockey Rink. Played Lacrosse too.

Go regardless, I'm still learning stuff at 64, besides, you never know who you might meet at one of those events. In reality, life here on this planet is mostly about relationships anyway.

This. When I was young I don't think a day went by I wasn't in the woods or fields, no matter the time of year or what was going on. I miss those days.

From what I've seen (read) from you, you've got a great attitude and have a passion for outdoor related stuff.
I like that in a young guy.
Rare nowdays. wink


swampgas chili and schmidt beer makes for a deadly combo

I don't do sports anymore and stopped at coach pitch which I can't even remember when that was, I've known trapping for 3 seasons and this one will be my 4th.
