Hello all, some of my students had some questions about trapping. Receiving some replies would be greatly appreciated. I took some students out this semester and showed them my trap line and some of animals that I have trapped. Caught lynx mainly and one wolverine. Students set out a few traps, had only an hour to set so we were only able to set within a mile or two of town. They caught a lynx in one of there sets. Going to have it sent out and tanned and be used for skin sewing projects next year. Had them read regulations, trapping ethnics, and trapping manuals and books that I have. Thanks.
