Many of us old timers have old traps we no longer really use and have been thinking about selling them what I been doing is selling them very cheap to beginner trappers with little money this does two things.

First helps them get started and still puts a little money in your pocket and gives you a great feeling also try it you be very surprised how you will feel.

I just sold some brand new traps I was not using to a young trapper at a very low price yes I lost money on it but he said something that really hit home after we were done he looked at me and said with tears in his eyes THANK YOU WITHOUT YOUR HELP I WOULD NEVER GET THE TRAPS this really as I said hit home as I never thought about it until that minute.

It don't take much to start them off 6 to 12 traps will do it my brothers and sisters take care

Very well done WHC. I am a firm believer that what goes around comes around. Helping youngsters get started with affordable (or free) equipment is always a good effort.

I have done the same and mentor young trappers from taking them on the line to fur handling and put up. I have the FHA fur Handling manuals that i pass out as well.
The feeling is great to watch them go out on there own.

Any information on where to trap or how to get landowner permission? I know every two years here in NH they allow people to use public tracts but I don't know where to go. I haven't been hunting since I was a teenager so I'm not knowledgeable about where to go. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
