Successful Furtaking Class

John (Oksus) and I attended a Successful Futaking class at the Indiana County Fox and Coon club today. Despite years on the trapline, you could always learn something new. Today was no exception.

The best part of the class today was the outdoor instruction we got from some of the experts.

I learned a few new tricks about the use of cable restraints and footholds but this was really cool! This set-up the guy used for DP traps.

This set-up is a wooden stake with a plastic clasp on each side. The DP traps pop inside these plastic clasps with the chain connected to slide cables and could be used for dispatch in a stream.

At the end of the day we had to take a 50 question test and all had passed.

I'm sure you noticed how everybody looks kind of cold. Well, it did snow this morning......And yes, It's April......

The horizon is your starting point.

Re: Successful Furtaking Class

That DP rig looks like it would work. and i'm sure it would work for land trappers as well. butttttt I only have 1 Duke DP and about 2 dozen Alcatraz DP, so would need to figure out how to make a rig for Alcatraz.

Looks like fun. I wish we had one closer to me sometime. I did the cable class the other year. I like that they get you outside.
