Of fur.

What would it be and why.

This thread has nothing to do with current prices or money to be made or not made..

I'd just like to know what yall like to trap and why.

As a kid, my dad had several big ponds he would trap when they had frozen over. He let me set some weasel traps. I loved trapping weasel; still think that's my favorite.


If searching old grandmas at our airports is so important, shouldn't it be this important at our borders too?

Ooo thats a close one. A tie between coyote and coon. Coon for nostalgia and coyote for the challenge.

I trap all species,always have.
My favourite is probably lynx in the dead of winter.
Beautiful animal and amazing fur
Beaver a close second.

Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

I love the smell of burning spruce---I love the sound of a spring time goose---I love the feel of 40 below---from my trapline I will never go!

Coon, hands down. Huge variety of ways to catch them water or land. Plentiful for big catches if that's your thing. Beautiful fur.

Marten because they are easy to put up and usually bring a decent price.


The only constant in trapping is change so keep learning.

Probably Wolf. Fox is a very close second because of how fun it is. But Wolves really use their heads and make it challenging. And they can kill you, so thereís that excitement.

Would be a tough decision!

Would be a toss-up between fox, beaver and muskrat.

I love catching red fox, but love eating beaver ( whistle ) and muskrat.

First critter I ever caught was a red fox, so Iíll go with them since I have a buddy that can supply me with beaver and muskrat meat.

On land red fox in water love trapping muskrats, its a toss up! I was eleven years old in 1968 set my first steel trap, and it went on to trapping every furbearer in Pa.

I'd like to trap a black bear. Realistically, groundhogs.


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Going to have to go to Maine for bears!
I have a key to a camp up there, load up and we can get after one each.

1st. Coyote for the challenge
2nd. Coon, because they are plentiful and easy to put up.
