    Default Living or hobby?

    Do you make good money trapping or is it mostly a hobby?

    Here in Texas fur is basically worthless.

    For me it is my main income I work doing something in the summer but trapping is my primary income. It is about finding alternative ways to sell your fur and not just concentrating on one critter at least in the area I live in. I seldom sell a full pelt and only if tanned most gets sewn into items such as hats mittens slippers and such. I am not rich but my bills are paid and I have pretty much what I want.

    mostly a hobby, the extra money is nice but I also tan alot of my fur to sell locally or trade for finished stuff like hats, gloves, etc. and I also just love being out that time of year.

    Ya but if you do it for a living...it wouldn't be that you'd get that way overnight...
    At least in my opinion..you'd really have to work up to it...for a few years you'd be doing it as a hobby losing money...
    I don't really know...that's just what I believe..I've done a little trapping...
