    If you are on the Kenai peninsula, you might try contacting Mike Crawford in Soldotna. I think Mike is still heading up the Kenai chapter of the ATA. send me an email to spike9542003@yahoo.com and I will send you his contact numbers.

    www.trapperman.com has a lot of info, pictures, etc. Go online and check The Snare Shop. Lots of supplies there. You will want snares for rabbits.

    Alaska Range Trapping Supply in Wasilla. They even offer a 10% discount to members of the Alaska Frontier Trappers Association.
    You might also check with Three Bears, as they carry trapping supplies up here in the valley.

    Three bears in Kenai has a little bit of stuff. Peninsula trapping supply would be my first choice if I was looking for gear.

    I just picked up a lot of traps fairly cheap on Ebay. Haven't used that site for years, and I even doubted they allowed them to be sold on there, but, wow, there's a lot on there. Most of my trapping tools and traps have been coming from Sullivan's. http://www.sullivansline.com They have been great to deal with.
