    Was that a marketplace find?

    @Steven it was. Found by a buddy of mine honestly. I don’t have Facebook, so the deal was set up for me. I figure the off season here in my neck of the woods will be a good time for me to clean these up, familiarize myself and get ready for next year.

    @Eric I gotcha yeah I’ve tried to look on marketplace for traps locally but no luck. There is a trappers buy, sell, trade page on Facebook I’m part of and they sell traps and furs both, but I’ve not bought anything there yet.

    @Steven I got lucky that my buddy knew I was looking. He knows what he’s looking at, though he isn’t big into trapping. He knows I’m new to trapping/traps in general and thought this would be a good find both for my supplies and for me to learn the traps and caring for them. I have so much to learn lol. Good luck finding stuff. If you’re looking for new stuff, I don’t know a lot of places, but I do know that Minnesota Trapline, Fleming Traps, and F&T Fur Harvesters have a ton of stuff, each with starter kits and supplies.

Proud father, OIF Veteran, Jack of just about no trades and definitely master of none…I like to camp, hike, fish, hunt, trap, garden and forage. I’ve done the first three for a while and am pretty new to the others. Always learning!
