I have talked to the administrator of this site and have asked him if it would be ok to see if anyone was interested in a trapping mentor program. The way it would work is that the country would be divided into 3 or 4 sections ands within each of these would be (hopefully) several experienced trappers willing to share their knowledge in answering questions from those with less experience within each section. Does this make sense? lol. I think that instead of dividing the country vertically, it showld be done horizontally for obvious reasons due to climate, furbearer etc. Still makes sense? So, what I need is for you to either yea or nay the idea and also to say if you would want to be a mentor. Or, if you even think this sort of thing would fly and benefit anyone. THANKS.

pa just finished first year of mentored buck hunting and it seems to be a massive success the kids are hooked immediately because they can hunt not just sit with you
any transfer of information from yourself to another is a part of your personal legacy left behind
wouldnt it be great to be the topic of a subject 20-30- years down the road that you taught someone ?

my cousin is only 9 and has been bugging us to take him hunting since he first shot a gun....i took him and shot his first groundhog and he was pumped....he shot a few squirrels now and doesnt seem to be leaving the hunting scene for a while...i think it is a good idea .....WISH THEY WOULD HAVE IT WHEN I WAS YOUNGER THAN 12 :)
