Gathering new gear
Met up with my uncle Darin (the forum sponsor) this weekend at my brother's bachelor party and did a little "shopping" in his truck bed. LOL
I sold him a few old traps I had and had some cash too. I walked away with 1 dozen MB-550's (2-coiled, offset), a dozen chain stakes, his latest 2 videos, and 1 Duke Dogproof trap.
That definitely got my blood pumping, especially once I got home and put together one MB-550 / chain stake to see what my sets would look like. I intend to add a shock spring between the swivels on the trap chain. Trying to decide if I'm going with 1 more swivel somewhere or not.
I want to add another dozen MB-550s and chain stakes and 5 more dog proofs to my arsenal before the season. Plus a few other odds and ends.
It's pretty handy having an uncle who sells trapping gear. LOL
