How did you get started trapping? After retiring in 1999, I needed new toys. One was a Skandic that spent more time in the shed than in the snow. I looked into trapping and read a lot of magazines on the topic. It seemed like a great way to get some use of the machine, enjoy the outdoors, and maybe put some fur on the wall, or maybe even a little extra change in my pocket. I tried to gather all the info I could, located an area to trap, joined ATA in 2003, and took all the classes offered.
