Any long-liners on here. That is, anyone on here who traps full time for a living. How many trap are you running? What species do you trap?

Re: Long-lining

Today it is almost impossible to trap full time for a living.

There are persons who make a living from fur related activities, trapping, fur buying, lure making, selling trapline supplies, etc.

There are several person here who trap full time for a period. Once the season ends they follow another line of endeavor.

Until my heart surgery in 2008 I used to run a full time trapline for two to three weeks every fall. Now that is physically impossible for me to do.

My advice is to get a good education, work hard and get a good job. Then take two to three weeks vacation each year and play long lining full time pro. That way if the catch is off and the weather is ghastly you are not robbing the bread and cheese from your table.

I trap mink because I don't know any better
