my dad , but it was my friends that I trapped with. I was 11 I think the first year that I trapped not counting the back yard there was about 40 acres of woods behind my house in town. but when I was 9 down to the river bottoms I went that would have been 1972 been hooked ever since.although I missed some I don't believe I want to miss any more. I think I have trapped 18 years or more total might be 20.

My grandfather got me interested in trapping. I use to sit on the porch and watch him bring those coons home and clean them, but never tried trapping for myself until recently. Still waiting on my first coon.

Some how I just had the interest. Maybe it was because we had a big swamp a 100yds. from the farm. A friend of my Dad's came over with a dz. or so traps and he took me out to show me how to make muskrat & mink sets. I then made the daily checks. I'd come home wet up to my waste about every night. Been hooked ever since. He came back in a couple of weeks to get his traps & see how we did. This was back in the mid '60s. I think I was about 12 years old.
My brother & I were able to get back into that ole' swamp & trap this year, It was like a step back in time.
