Just ordered my first trapping supplies

I was working a big sale over at Sportsman's Guide and got these - hopefully a good starter kit.

sweet. Might want to chat up Day8 and of course the guru on the topic Farside. I know after Farsides class Day8 bought materials and assemble 100 traps then he collected back walnuts to soak them in.

I think traps is the way to go and I hope at next campout or the Appleseed event we can have another class on it.

Nice find!

If you are going after Beaver you need some #330's.

Good start! You do need a couple of #330. And don't forget rat traps.

I have been really curious on those Yo-Yo fishing reels, if they work and/or are any good.

Let me know if you test one out.

I have two in each BOB and half dozen in my small trapping kit. They work great for a lazy fisher man or to keep tension on a snare. Remember survival is always about calories in and calories out. Let the tools do the work.

If I get the 330, I need the opening handles, right?

What's your BOB plan? What I got would be a specific chunk of space and weight. I'm thinking maybe a couple yoyos, some snares and a 110?

Yes! You need the cocking bar.

My BOB kit only has snares and yoyo in it. Three dozsen snares of different sizes and two yo yo. Maybe a pound and a half. The canibar are on the cart.

Trapping and snaring are critical skills for hunting silently and while you're sleeping or otherwise occupied.  Y'all may want to try some of the commercial trapping suppliers such as F&T Post.com which is my favorite, PCSOutdoors.com, Cocolamus Creek Supplies.com, Wildlife Control Supplies (www.ShopWCS.com) pricey but have everything about trapping you would ever want, and many other places.  Trapping is a whole 'nuther education to learn.  I've been at it for over forty years on and off and I'm still learning. Good luck.
