    Question Trapping books/video?

    I searched this site but there is nothing listed for books or material on trapping.
    Is there a book you guy's would recommend to help get me started?

    Thanks..

    Probably said this before, but I would recommend joining the Nat. Trappers Assoc. You'll get a magazine 8 or 10 times a year that has good articles in it. Subscribe to The Trapper and Pred. Caller also. Informative articles and loads of ads on places to buy traps and supplies, including videos.

    Default Thanks gang..

    Thanks.. I've got the trappers assoc. page saved so I can access it and join later. And I'll look for the book. I have a lot to learn by next trapping season. I have lots to do, and I want to do it right...
    I'll keep searchingthe archives for info, but no doubt I'll have questions!
    Now... gotta go get the snowblower and roof rake ready for our first winter storm! woohoo!!
    Better late than never I guess!

    ciao y'all

    One thing that you can do is pick up a Fur game and game mag. They sell tons of books in the mag. It is also a great magazine.

    Default Fur Fish Game

    Yup.... There isn't a convenience store, gas station or magazine rack here that doesn't carry it. Since I'm pretty new to this I'll pick up a copy this weekend and give it a look....
