Well after 2 months of waitin my nusance permit finaly showed up, man that gov works fast, lol. I got my business cards all made up and I started handin some out yester day, so with a little luck and a few more cards maybe I can get some trappin work yet this year. I think I will be mostly doing beaver calls to start out but I hope to get calls for other critters to.

Glad to hear you have it. I got mine a couple months ago and the phone has not been ringing off the hook. I thought I'd get a few calls based on what the state told me. Not so as of yet. I guess the game wardens are not as busy as they proclaimed. It is nice to be able to just do a lot of stuff without verbal or written permission.

Seems most of my money has been made with the live traps doing skunks & woodchucks. I have been charging $50 set up & evaluation and $50 per animal. In my classes they said the ladder would be used the most but I have not had much exclusion work. That said , after one year I can say that things are picking up. Good luck to you. nh

Couldn't agree mor with that statement Chief :D Always remember that if you do a good job that the customer will tell maybe three people but if you do a bad job and do nothing to make it right that the whole world will know in a hurry. Getting a business up and running takes a bit of patience but good work will make it grow just like fertilizing a crop.
Good luck on the new venture's guys :D

Usually its right around their house so they can easily check the traps in the morning. So far they all kinda get into the whole " we're a trappin" thing. Saves me a lot of running around. As business picks up I am sure my prices will. You soon realize just how valuable your time is. I now have a guy that wants a few beaver ( to rebuild an old beaver dam) but doesn't want to pay up. Well I guess he will have to get them himself. nh
