    Trapping North American Furbearers by S. Stanley Hawbaker is a good one. I bought my copy at Sportman's Warehouse.

    The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

    Noone has a more intimate understanding of, or deeper appreciation for freedom, than a soldier who has fought for it in a country where it does not exist.

    Alaska Guide to Fur Handling is a good one. Not sure where you are located, but would imagine Alaska Raw Fur in Fbks has copies too if you don't want to order from F&G. [edit: ah, see you are in Michigan]

    Dean Wilson's book is great, The Alaska Trapper's Handbook. Think it may be available here on the AOD bookstore.

    Hal Sullivan has a decent video on fur handling.

    I got a DVD this year called "Canadian Long Line" He went over all kinds of snaring and conibear sets, plus he did fur handling.
