    Default Jennifer becomes addicted to trapping.....

    Jen got out on the line and started making her own sets. I guess all the trapping business got her curiosity up about what we were doing out in the woods all the time. Her first set she ever made netted her a nice martin today, and I think now I may have to start doing some of the cooking, as she'll be out on the line all the time.... Anyhow, she made the set, picked the type of set, trap, bait, including the location, a couple of days ago. She then skinned her martin out with Jake's teaching, and is proud of her trophy.... looks like my taxidermy bill continues to grow, as she wants to do a full mount! Couldn't think of a better way to spend money, though!

    Pretty Marten, she looks pumped! Was it a box set? Might as well do a lifesize, here is my lifesized Mark did from Double Shovel (sponser on here). Folks will dig it in your place, same reason I did one. None better that I have seen for a marten or small animal mount!
