Turkey Day Trapping
« on: November 26, 2020, 10:15:27 PM »
Every year we try to go out together and check the lines.  I went every year with my dad while he trapped.  With all the different hustle and bustle, it is hard to get both the big kids to go.  We had a good day as always.

The crew
May that for which I prepare never come to pass.

Looks like you are doing life right.

Way to set a good example for the kids and the rest of us for that matter.  :tup:

When I was in High School, no other day used to get Dad and I in more hot water than "Trapping on Thanksgiving Day".
After a full Day of checking the line, trudging through Swamps, Corn Fields and Cold Mountain Streams,
the only ones more excited than us about diving into the warm food were the Famliy members paitantly awaiting our return.
 Invariably the critter catching would delay us just long enough that a detailed explanaiton would be in order. (Not hard for a couple of Seasoned Lying Fisherman to come up with).
Websites like this one, are made Great by Folks like you! (It shows there are a few true Sportsman still out there.)

have been fighting to upload pics -

So 1st up is the 43 lb'er my son and I caught Wednesday night.  We brought it to this farm as it is a bit more isolated than where we caught it.  Though there is a healthy yote and bob population at both locations.  The other location has some pets we did not want to pull the predators in on.

All of these are WCO Permit jobs - FYI

Oh yeah, same here - other than the excuse that it just took longer than we thought it was going to.  Every year it is the same scenario, and same excuse. We were only an hour and a half late this year.  :dunno:   Dinner was only our tribe of 5 this year, so not too big a deal.  The three of us got right in and started on the side dishes we were responsible for.  It was a great dinner and a great day as always.

I will be civil here. But :bash: :nono:  :bash:

  I am a nuisance trapper.  WCO ( Wildlife Control Operator). These are nuisance jobs that require a special permit for each job through WDFW.  Note The Conibear in a couple of the pics. I pointed this out in the post with the first beaver pic.  I generally catch between 30 and 50 beaver every year. The fur can not be sold.  Since I don't think siding my house with pelts is a viable option, they get recycled back into the food chain.  I would be wasting my and my families time to do anything more with them.

Have a good day.
