First Year Success/ Trophy

I have never trapped before in my life.
This year I was lucky enough to meet one of the regular contributors to this forum.
After sharing a location with him, he offered to teach me trapping if I would like to learn the art.
I took him up on his offer.


I could not have asked to meet a nicer guy, or a better teacher to teach me how to trap.
He even offered to give me a couple traps of my own to run and tag along with him checking traps.

So I got my fur takers license and bought a bobcat tag.



The past 2 weeks I have learned a lot from him and enjoyed all the time spend learning the art from a truly nice person.


My first catch, was a raccoon which I was very excited for..










Without spoiling another post I'm sure will be coming, yesterday I was beyond excited!





We walked up to first trap, and there was what we were hoping..

A Bobcat in my 1st year!

What a great day to share with a new friends and my wife..




It was a wet, muddy mess but I was super excited.. Small female but fine with me for my first one..






I feel privileged to have learned from such a great teacher & ambassador for your sport of trapping..








So in spending time together last week and talking about hunting, he said about never shooting a goose and wanting to..


I said no problem, we will go Thursday morning and he was more than welcome to tag along..

Well, we had a great day goose hunting & he was able to get a couple geese on his first hunt..






This was a small token I could offer to try to repay him for teaching me so much and letting a rookie bug him for a couple weeks..


But, now I think we have both got to experience something new in the outdoors we never had and believe we will both continue our newly learned pursuits..


Thank you Nick..
(sorry I couldn't wait) haha

Congrats! Trapping can become an addiction. Hard to do the hero pic on a bobcat ( pulling their tail) , being that they don't have much of one.

Congrats, now you have another outlet for your money!

A haiku is just like a normal American poem, except it doesnt rhyme and is totally stupid.
