RIP Mr. Grawe.

One of my big regrets was not being able to attend one of his trapper days.

Rip sir


Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

I remember the "Badger in the Barrel" contest distinctly. Was there in '81-'83 and had a good time. Ardelle was not the easiest guy to talk to in those early years but that was common of guys who learned furharvesting "tricks" the hard way. As he got older, he got a lot more open on his info sharing and was very helpful to those starting out. To make the catches he did, he covered a lot of country as that area of MN did not hold extremely high populations of furbearers. It took a lot of work. .......................... the mike

Back in the early 70's I trapped heavy for Michigan red fox.
To up my program I traveled "out west" to take 1 on 1 lessons from one of the country's best...Ardell Grawe. I got my money's worth!! It was an intense day on his line. Arielle was
all business from start to finish. Over the ensuing years that followed, my
catch went up a lot. In my opinion Ardell Grawe earned his place
his place as one of the best in this sport. And the products
he made were some of the most effective I ever used.
They don't make guys like him anymore.

Wow I hate to hear that. RIP. I have caught a ton of cats using his Snow Cat #2.


I can't believe that cop put me in the back seat when I clearly called shotgun.

Bruce, if you don't get a lot of responses to your Ardelle Grawe post, it's because this cycled through already.
