Just thought I would add if you have some traps, bring them along and you can make a few sets. Maybe take something home more than knowledge gained.

Looking forward to this event!  This will be my first season trapping, and it will be great to learn from people with experience.  Couldn't come at a better time! I'll head down there mid day Friday after work.  See you then!

I wanted to say Thank You to everyone who put on this event. It was very educational and I learned many tips and tricks that I can implement on the trapline. I loved that I got a chance to meet some other beginner trappers and made some connections. Seeing that Beaver caught, skinned and boarded was awesome.
Honestly, this was exactly what I had hoped it would be.
Thank you again.
