Post subject:  Trap Modifications and Preparations

Is there anything better than sitting down with a warm mug of french vanilla coffee, some tools, your trapping partner next to you, doing a few modifications on your traps?

Right now, I'm swapping out some springs, and 4 coiling a few of my traps. John is testing the pan tension and adjusting it appropriately next t me. It's cool and drizzly outside. What a beautiful day to be a trapper. :)

yeah I know ya cant,I wasnt fishing neither,ya got a good partner. lol I'll find 1 one these days tho. my brother is laid off,but he doesnt like to trap.What Id really like to find is a skinner,that way I could really hammer it hard,14 hours a day. try to limit to 8,then skin for 5,6hrs. man I cant even think how much that would add to my catch.

I'm lucky. I've got two GREAT boys within 30 minutes from here in Winchendon MA that have offered to do my skinning this year. They're really good kids. Maybe you ought to hit up the trappers-education courses looking for kids or people who want to learn how to skin and what not, and cut their teeth. Sure, the hides might not be perfect, but it'd let them get some experience and it'd give you a bit of a break.

Lil Bit- That sounds great, it sounds like you've found a great partner. It's awesome when there are things like that that you can enjoy doing together.
