Hey all i am brand new to this forum and very new to trapping. I just began trapping this year with a friend of mine. I am originally from Utah stationed in North Carolina in the Marine Corps. Been in almost 8 years now. I have always been a big hunter and fisherman but haven't had time to get into trapping until now. So ahead of time excuse my ignorance and thanks for the help.

Pete

Glad to have ya here, the guys here have been great in teaching me a bit about trapping. I'm the mom to a former Marine and my hubby was in the Corp as well. Stick around and enjoy the forum, you won't regret it!
Thank you for serving, Semper Fi!

Down in Camp Lejune? I don't know how much is public but coastal NC has a lot of wooded wetlands that are probably prime candidates for trapping. Just what I know from looking down from space and a few trips through the area. Don't have any on the ground knowledge. Thank you for your service!!! I heard a Congresswoman make a BIG mistake the other night by talking about the "soliders" in the Iwo Jima memorial in DC. I don't think the folks in the Corps would take to kindly to that oops!! Stay safe!!

Welcome to the site and thank you!!! I am proud of all of our servicemen! And you will certainly learn, from on here and through your own experiences. Don't hesitate to try something different out there, you never know what will work.
