Here is an upcoming event. We will have at least one of all the common Wisconsin furbearers to demo. My intentions with this event is to give new trappers an opportunity to learn fur handling techniques from some of us with more experience. Who knows, maybe some of us that think we know it all will learn a thing or 2.

That's really cool! I have a couple new trappers that may be interested.


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

We have coon, coyote, beaver, otter, mink and muskrat by Walt. Jimmy is going to do a bobcat, hopefully we can come up with a fisher. I have enough room we could get a couple stations going at a time. The address is Strum but the location is between Foster and Brackett. Sometimes that throws people off a bit.

I'd be interested in seeing how other people do it and I'm sure a few of the kids would too, I might try to make it want us to bring anything?

Well I was planning on going today but the back won't allow it today. Good luck JSell, hope you have a great turnout. I do know a couple new trappers who plan on being there though, one caught his first bunch of fur this season and one is just getting interested in trapping and plans on getting his certification this coming year.

We had an excellent turnout!! About 25 people attended and we ran out of parking. I think everyone took something away from the event and we are hoping to schedule it again for next year. We had a couple examples of all the common fur bearers available and showcased fur handling from start to finish on all. Some attendants even brought their own along to get help with. Watch the spring issue of the Wisconsin Trapper for pics and a short write up.
