I donít know why I am surprised
« on: February 18, 2018, 10:24:25 AM »
I know I shouldnít be, but I am always surprised by how uninformed  outdoor user groups are about each other.  Particularly when it comes to trapping.  I remember plenty of conversations with avid hunters when 713 was on the ballot who were all in favor of ending trapping outright.

Below is a link to a thread started by a guy who blundered into a 330 on the deschutes in Oregon.  Given the nature of the people who post on that site the posts are chill (they can get far more worked up about anything steelhead related)

I thought I detected a bunch of NIMBY attitude.

Wow, if they are outdoorsman then we are in trouble. Seem like a bunch of libertards except for the finluver guy that only care about fishing and not the outdoors as a whole.

I think it shows a lot of uninformed attitudes. And probably some arrogance from some who are obviously too far removed to understand trapping's important role in comprehensive wildlife management.

The young trapper probably needs a little mentoring and warned to be more cautious. Instead they post his name and phone and threaten to do him bodily harm.
The lesson he will learn is to not put personal info on his trap tag and that fly fisherman are a holes.
We know most fly fisherman aren't but that is the lesson this kid will take away all because of a few people with bad attitudes.

I agree with Bruce.  I think I am extra sensitive to putting his information on the web due to my experiences.  When I took the trappers ed course in Ď90 there was far more people protesting out front of the gate than were enrolled in the class.  I was escorted from my parents car through the gate by two officers with shotguns while a handful of other officers guarded the gate and building.
I got a trapping I.d. # before I ever made a single set.  There was no way I was putting my name & address on any of my traps.

Iím not a trapper but somehow I am offended by their attitude.  On top of that, I think Iíd take little Oíl Zac over a the guy who thinks he needs his a#* kicked.

I find it a little odd that ďPaulĒ didnít post a picture of his finger.  He took the time to post the take out location and mark it up but not his finger that was injured.  Just seems a little ď fly fishyĒ to me!  :twocents:
TRUMP, please make America great again!

I think the link should be removed, it doesn't do any of us any good leaving it up there.  Especially the info on that trap tag should not be available here.
 The trap was set legally by Oregon state laws.  I talked to the trapper and it is NOT a 330.

Looks like a 330 to me as well.  I took the link down to minimize the exposure of the guys personal information.  Probably doesnít matter since any exposure on here is more likely benign than having it up on that site.

I also thought it looked like a Duke 330.  It's not.  Guessing Paul_ has Presidential sized hands.

The next size down is a 280 which is 8"x8" but regardless of the size of the conibear he was legal and the idiot that took the trap broke the law END OF STORY!!  As far as I'm concerned the uppety yuppety fly guy should get cited

Why is someone trying to flyfish in an area with beavers (or otters or rats)?  That's kind of where you expect trappers to be.
