  • snaring supplies

    Are there any shops in the Valley that sell snares/supplies? My oldest daughter (9yo) was reading some of the fox snaring threads and expressed an interest in a trapline. We have a great trail system nearby which would be easy to check after work so I am thinking about laying out a few (6-10) snares to give it a whirl with her. I haven't run a trap line since back in the '80s so I am going to have to re-learn a few things!

    What shops are local with decent supplies (if any)?

    Akmud,run into Boondocks in ER.They have about 3 doz. fox snares left as of yesterday.They also had 1 spool of #11 tie wire.Pick that up also,it's perfect for supporting the snare.If Boondocks sells out before you get there,pm me and I have a extra doz I will sell you.Sportsmans whse is a joke along with MT View Sports as for as trapping supplies.

      Bob Green is a good source of supplies and info. His place is between Wasilla and 4 corners on the north side of the road. Alaskana gifts upstairs, and all the trapping goods downstairs. Buys furs too.

              Went in there today and was introduced to the basement. He got me set up with a dozen #2's and some standoff wire. Now all we need is for this hurricane style wind to let up and a few free days to go find some good places to set....

                Glad to help

                Hope you have good luck. I started taking my three year old son on short trapping outings, what fun!!! Great way to get the outdoors in their blood.
