    WTG on catching them critters GT. Do you have to have a special license for trapping?

    License
    No Justin, You have to be licensed to Buy the Furs but for Trapping...It's only a $10 Stamp and really worth it just for the Fun of it lol...Didn't have anything today though but that happens of course

    cool
    I wasn't sure if it required a seperate licensing or not. I met a guy a few years ago that said he was getting paid to trap beavers and otters by the property owner(s) and then I guess he was selling them as well. He was talking about these basket traps that go under the water and whatnot but I don't remember what all he was saying cuz I didn't understand most of it. lol
    Any money in ground hogs cuz we seem to have plenty of them rascals. lol

    Here's what I use Justin...It's a 330 Conibear Trap...Made this set for a Otter and was surprised to catch this beaver. Conibears offer a Quick Kill also. If you use this type be careful and I would suggest the Loading tongs also lol I can set 1 without tongs but It's a Job!!! Makes me Grunt lol But anyway, Yeah Ground Hogs Sell also. I have been making some footage to edit all together but then again, It will probably still offend someone lol But It is what it is and That's Trapping!!! BTW, The less Holes in the Furs the more they worth so we use this type of Trap and on the Live Traps such as leg-Holds, Cage or Dog Proof...we close the deal with a 22 short that leaves a tiny hole that can be repaired....Good Luck.
