r3 initiative

It’s no secret that the ranks of trappers, hunters and even anglers are shrinking. This is nothing new, and some of the reasons are unavoidable. More and more folks live in cities and fewer and fewer live in rural settings, and if you don’t think it’s harder to hunt-fish-trap when you live in town, you’ve never lived in one. An aging population is another big reason for the decline. I’m a Baby Boomer, and this summer I’ll turn 73. I’m still plugging along, but I don’t have as many sunrises ahead of me as sunsets behind me. The day is coming when I’ll hang up my traps and throw away the key to the gun room. Not this year or the next, I hope, but it’s out there, and I can…

otters: curb their destructive habits

Some folks might be surprised to hear this, but otters can do a lot of damage around their habitats. Whether it’s destroying fish populations in farm ponds and hatcheries or burrowing under homes that are near waterways; and gardens are not safe from them, either. On top of all of that, their feces is extremely foul smelling and the food they leave behind can cause a smelly mess. There are several repellents available on the market these days that are made to deter otters from coming around homes, but they are not always guaranteed to work. One of the most effective ways to discourage river otters is by spreading the seeds of black pepper in your garden. Alternatively, you could make use of pepper spray. You may also consider using citronella oils,…

trapping is hand-on

Make this set — if you can still bend your fingers. Trapping is tough on your hands. There is no question about it. I once trapped with an old-timer, about halfway through the season, he would declare, “I know when I’m trappin’ because my hand looks like the back foot of a beaver.” This old fellow trapped all winter long, bare-handed. I could not follow in his footsteps. If I stick my hands in icy water, it feels as if there are a thousand needles prodding at my flesh. But, even though I wore gauntlets for most of my water trapping, my hands would still get wet and muddy while I ran my traplines. For a week or two everything was okay. Then the water and the mud would start to leach the…

the wide, wide world of coyote damage control on the trapline with tom beaudette

I don’t think there is a more challenging furbearer to trap than the coyote. Th roughout the years, I have trapped some impressive numbers of the little wolf, and most of those coyotes came pretty easy. It wasn’t until I started working in damage control that I received a real education. There are and always will be coyotes on a trapline that will be tough to catch These coyotes have either seen a buddy in a trap, or quite possibly have fired a trap and escaped themselves. Either way, they will be very difficult to catch. Once an old coyote puts two and two together, the coyote trapper will have a challenge trying to put up these guys. Most trappers reading this article will not want to bother with tough coyotes like…

a new year, and a new era

The year 2020 will be a year of change, and we can probably state that the greatest uncertainty about the fur market is happening right now. As you read this, the entire industry is in turmoil, and there has been major shuffling of all longtime industry players. As I am sure you have heard, North American Fur Auctions (NAFA) faced some major financing challenges in 2019, and the oldest fur auction in North America was forced to get out of the wild fur business for 2020 — this year. As soon as the news was out, most all of the other industry players are fighting to try and captures the market shares that NAFA dropped. Imagine this: more than 15,000 wild fur trappers that historically shipped to NAFA now have to…

lure sense

Let’s face it, there are about ten thousand lure and bait choices on the market these days, and we trappers who aren’t lure-making experts are left confused about what works and how it works. Take any trapping supply catalog and check out the sections with baits and lures — the choices are staggering. Sometimes the short descriptions about the products can provide some clarity about their use, but they’re often more of a sales pitch than detailed information. Now, to be fair to our quality bait and lure makers out there, the advertisement space is limited and some lure makers do provide some good details about their lures. But, a lot is left to be desired when it comes to information about when, where and how to use many of the…
