2021 Trapline

Figured I would make a thread. Since tagging out early my kids have fallen in love with trapping which has reignited and old passion I had growing up. We started out opening weekend just putting out a few dog proofs for coons and were gonna add to the line when stuff primed up a bit. Ever since this past spring, when I just made an offhand comment while beaver trapping saying "I hope we don't catch an otter now", my 5 year old has been obsessed. Always talks about trapping an otter, checks out books at school about otters or animal books with otters in them so I decided I'd make a few sets for them, but had never caught one before. We caught a few coons and a week ago I put out 2 cross-overs. The excitement on his face and pure joy when he walked up and saw an otter in his 220 trumped my bow buck. He was mad he didn't get to shoot it and even more mad I'm not letting him mount it. He will be happy when it is done getting tanned and he can hang it up in his room. He is eaten up with trapping and I'm doing my best to fuel that fire. Also ended up with an incidental rabbit that for some reason he thought he was gonna just hang out with. Had to give a lesson in taxidermy vs dead animal that night.

Awesome, sure brings back memories of my obsession of trapping when I was young. I actually set a few mink traps this week, too many around. Might set for coyote, fox and coon yet? Love it when the youngsters take part, the smiles say it all.

Great post. Love the excitement. Sometimes I think I need to look at these pursuits through the eyes of a kid again.

Awesome getting the kids into trapping. That is a nice otter, sure miss the days they were worth $100.
My best memories are from the trapline with good friends over the years, and skinning for an old country fur buyer.
