Looking for a mentor..

So I bought a few trapping supplies this year and managed to catch a couple coon. I plan on buying alot more traps, stretchers, fleshing tools, etc.. leading up to next year. I have some great areas to trap, but i'm looking for someone to help me cut down the learning curve on pretty much everything.
I'm buying a few DVD's and books to read this offseason, but there is nothing like learning first hand from someone else. I would be willing to split half my catch with anyone who offers to help. I live Donora, which is on the border of Allegheny, and Westmoreland counties. If your interested shoot me a PM.

Re: Looking for a mentor..

videos are good...there are some youtube videos you can watch and there are a lot of good posts on here as well.....i am semi new at trapping...(4yrs) and caught my first yote and helped a friend get a bobcat....the biggest thing i learned in my time is trap placement and not overthinking...these are dumb critters that you are trying to get to put their foot in a 4 inch spot/head in a 9 inch loop....dealing with vandals....and PATIENCE! good luck next year!
