    Steve, that is great! I love seeing families out enjoying the outdoors together, and it is even better that you have your daughters out on the trapline with you. Fantastic!

    Far better for the kids than video games and TV.

    Great job!

    Thanks! I think I'm doing my part helping keep the sport alive,especially being girls. They come home from school all the time to tell me some of the grief they get when they talk about trapping. One thing that is funny is that when my oldest hears BOYS talking about bears and moose "they" have killed or "things" they have trapped, she quickly shoots questions at them from the hip and shoots holes right thru their stories,lol. Brian, look out for her in two years,she'll be roaming your halls!

    Those are some great pics Steve, looks like you are having a great start to your trapping season and your daughters are having a blast being out there with you.

    Is that an old Winchester 22 your oldest daughter is holding?

    I hope I'm fortunate enough to get her in one of my classes. I love having students who hunt, fish, and trap!

    It is great to get kids interested young so they can share the truths with their classmates. My girlfriend is a fourth grade teacher, and is new to trapping this year. She is sharing it with her class, bringing in skins ect. the kids just love it.

    Good eye Bronco! that old gun has been around a while. Hard to justify carrying around the weight for just a old .22 but she's always true and dependable! One of them guns that you don't mind throwing around a little bit.

    My grandfather gave me one as my first gun, its been all over with me and taken its share of grouse, ptarmigan, and hares. The tube ended up falling out in the snow one year and took me a few hours of back tracking to locate it. The plastic knob on the bolt has broken off and the receiver has worn down from all the shooting so the bolt does not like to lock to the rear anymore. But it is still a blast to shoot and very accurate not to mention I can not call any failures over the years with it.
