Boco, there is a right and a wrong way to promote trapping and the trapping lifestyle. The wrong way is by making snide remarks and criticizing those that have been fighting extremely hard to maintain that way of life in their state. That is what Matt is doing and that is where I find an issue. Thereís nothing at all wrong with being passionate about an issue, but donít talk down to others on a situation you know nothing about until you have a little skin in the game


Gotta live up to the nickname...

I dont disagree with that but there is no need to denigrate the guy.That will just alienate a potential ally.
He likely took that defensive attitude in response to the name calling.


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

I'm betting that stick trick wouldn't work so well up here with snow.


Which year do you want to compare? Like I said, nobody was even remotely close to Louisiana. They next closest state would have to trap 3 season to even match what we did in 1 year. This is just these few years, there are many more like it. Take out squirrels For Wisconsin and they drop significantly, but add ours in and the gap widens even more.
