I graduated from high school this year and I'm so pleased but now I'm getting to be bored and have no idea what to do, a job also isn't a option right now as all the students are looking for work and we have a very small community of 7000 people... I heard on the radio there looking for more members of the trapping council here, it really got me thinking. I collect taxidermy peices and pelts, and the idea of actually getting my own foxes and critters makes me happy since I know where they came from and how they died. So I'm thinking of joining in September becuase I'll officially be 18 and I'll qualify for the 'adult' traper liecense and any other liecenses I will need to legally trap my own. The council will go over how to set up a trap, where to set it up, and killing the anima... I never hunted in my life, and I don't know what trap would be best for me? Lots of People here use snares but in think it would be damaging to the fur? I want to get an idea of start up costs and tips.
