I am bringing my traps to school on Tuesday to show everyone in my class how they work. :D
We are reading a book, and a guy was a trapper as a kid (in the book).
I told my teacher I trap and he asked me to bring in some traps.
:D

thats cool I am glad that this is a positive thing and that the class will learn how the past meets the present with trapping. good luck remember that this could influence people in there future how they perceave trapping .Try to make it a positive thing for them and good luck .

don't set them in the classroom. There'sno way you can set them off in the classroom that will have a positive effect on those already against trapping. Just describe how they work, and if they ask you to set one, just say, "I'd like to, but these are specilized pieces of equipment that can easilly be damaged by dry fire."

lil bit has very good advise , maby you can take pictures of you setting or pictures of them set but don't let the jaws slam shut as this may scare some and they will think about pain and the animal and a new peta member will be born. actually you do have alot riding on your shoulders maby more than you realize so take great care in this. I think you will do well with this.

im glad its you doing the presentatation bryton cause im sure youll do it properly
i agree with them setting it off in full swing will give the wrong impression on the humanity of trapping
it might be a good idea to drop the traps off at the classroom immediately at the start of the day for the teacher to have control of so you dont get into any trouble withem you know how some others act with stuff they dont understand
last were proud of you for recruiting into the sportsmans outdoors at a young age yourself its something to be really proud of ' its your heritage'.maybe someday you can be head recruiting agent here ,it sounds like your heading in the right direction for us . good job
