Hey folks, new to your forum here and suspecting that FFG is probably the only thing I have in common with many of you these days. See, I'm from Massachusetts where the shortsighted liberal voting base outlawed fur trapping back in 1996. I fought that ballot initiative with all my might but alas, in my home State, we can kill an unborn baby, but trapping a muskrat has been deemed too cruel. Oh, we didn't outlaw rat/mouse traps and poisons so if a mouse is peeing in your silverware drawer you can snap him on the neck but if you have a beaver felling your apple orchard, it's too cruel to do anything about it.
You can imagne my extreme ANGER over this.
Anyway, FFG is the best outdoor magazine in existence and I suspect that many of you subscribe. If you don't you should consider it......having fun reading about the real-life trapping you folks are doing and chatting about here so thanks for all the stories and pics. It's a dream of mine to run a long line in Alaska and hole up on a cabin for the winter. It'll probably always remain a dream but if I ever hit the lottery, I just may make it up your way.
So hello to you all; thanks for the stories and watch out for the anti fanaticals 'cause they won't stop till they're at your doorstep too.
