In Litchfield this yr. How can someone talk for an hr long. I was stumbling what to say next after 20 min. Things you do on the trapline you just do. Then trying to put them into words in front of around 30 or so people.Oh! Then they never mentioned the cotton mouth.

yeah man , those cottonmouths are some mean mother frickin snakes. Hard to concentrate with those things around. Just try an old trick my English teacher told us in high school...................... picture the audience naked..................... you'll either get through it just fine or puke all over everybody. :wink: 8) :lol: :lol:

I got thru it. Ended up talking for about hour and a half. I was glad to get out of there.

Me neither, which is why I always kept my eyes closed when showering after high school football practice. Broke 3 toes and lost about 50 bars of soap cause I never bent over to pick it up. But soap was cheap then. :roll:

3 people stayed after the demo was done to ask more questions about my sets. That is where the extra half hr came from. I did a demo on wolf foots holds. I wanted to stress the fact that you should have the right gear for wolf trapping to hold them 100% of the time. Then i went to the use of bait piles, baits,lures and what wolves had taught me while i was trapping them. No book or dvd will tell you what the wolves show you on the trapline as far as the ones i have seen. I was trying to shorten the learning curve for them in that respect.
