Jay Garrison, 40yrs old, live in Louisiana, MO. Been married to my lovely wife, Marsha, 21 years. We have two kids, Mackenzie 20, and Colby 16. I worked for Holcim Cement company until they closed my plant last year. I am now employed at BASF in Palmyra, MO. I spend all of the warmer months chasing fish(largemouth and smallmouth bass and hybrid stripers mostly) and of course the colder months trapping. I water trap the river mostly but always take some time to chase the cats and foxes. Still hunt but not as much as when I was younger.

Hi my name is Michael Calvert. I have a wife Samantha we have been married two years. We have a daughter named Gianna. I grew up in the outdoors hunting camping fishing and so on. I had never knew about trapping until last year, me and my brother went to feldmans to get some stuff for work and jackpot. We seen the traps, and I was hooked. Our first day trapping we looked for road kill to use for bait. lol We found a couple of different Things that we could use . We thought it would work for yote bait. lol Our first catch was a non target animal. I have learned a whole lot since then. I have gotten pretty good at grinners and ok at coons. Im still waiting for the yote, it will come sooner or later. I thank everyone on this site for your help. Yall good people, and I appreciate it. Thanks

My name is Tom. Live in Adams County Pennsylvania. I am a state licensed Taxidermist,still without the urge to do more than just friends , relatives, or my own stuff as work. hav not trapped anything since i was 12, other than field rats or pocket gophers. I want to get out and start my trapping carreer this fall, and with all the help i got from all here ,plan on getting me alot of nice fur. I want to run at least 25 traps. I will trap by my home early on,. Then take a 10 day vacation and run a line in Luzerne county PA. later. My targets will be primarily K9's but, will set a few water sets as well, thanks for all the tips and for answering all my questions.

My name is Tim Wilcox, I live in Western NY State with my wife and children. I try to get all of my kids involved when it comes to trapping, even if it is trap preparations or going out on the line. I love seeing the smiles on my kids faces when we pull up to a red fox, coyote or even a coon. This is the reason I love going out into the outdoors. My wife even loves to ride along with me on the days that the kids are in school, so it is a family thing. At the end of the season, we all prepare the furs for sale, even our 4 year old loves to brush out the fur. I could go on and on, but think you get the idea. Glad to be here. Tim

My name is Kiel, I am a local business owner in Minnesota, I am 26 years old, and own 2 companies. I just got married in August, and we went up to northern Mn and stayed in a cabin on the lake for 2 weeks fishing for our honeymoon. I have a chocolate lab that loves to go fishing. He can be seen in the boat trying to get the fish out of the live well or the 5 gallon bucket. I have been trapping for a couple of years. This year is the best year I have had yet!
When I am not at work, fishing, or trapping I am usually at home working in my garage, or hanging out with the wife.
I look forward to getting to know more of you here on the forum, and if you ever have a question let me know and I will do my best to help.

I told my wife that a husband is like a fine wine; he gets better with age. The next day, she locked me in the cellar.

farmnhunter: If you want to avoid feline, you can't use any meat or fish item or scent. Try a piece of black licorish covered by dairy feed, or lucky charms or corn/koolaid (mix 1 qt whole corn with a package of grape koolaid)
