anyone else an addict?

just figured id ask is anyone else addicted to hunting and trapping? my ex never understood why i kept buying traps and hunting suppiles when i already had plenty, or mounting more deer when im already out of room. i cant even count the money put into it i know last year i bought 2 500$ kayaks just to go duck hunting out of and the year before me and a friend bought over 2k in new decoys and blinds. i hunt just about anything you can and love trapping and seem to always be looking for new things to buy or make for my hobbies when it comes to trapping tho my only goal is to make back what i spent on supplies that year depending on the cost sometimes i come up short. my little brother is starting and is just like me not really in it for the profit more of the fun of it all. i got permission to trap a pond this year by offering to give half of the money i make on rats to the farmer but im also trapping for coon and he is going to let me duck hunt it (perfect for the kayaks). only other addicts can understand it i just enjoy getting out and leaving my cell phone and work at home. so does anyone have any neat things to make for tapping im getting supplies to make my own release pole instead of buying one this week and just made several tie-offs out of aircraft cable for my dog proof traps so that i can set them quicker when im ready to move areas.

From September to April my world revolves around hunting the rest is preseason.

LOL You <span style="text-decoration: underline">are</span> an addict. Given the high cost of gasoline and 'rats being in short supply like they are, there is no way would I offer a split to the farmer for permission.

I trap mink because I don't know any better

Re: anyone else an addict?

Well I rifle/bowhunt for whitetails, hunt gobblers in the spring with both xbow/shotgun, run cottontail/hare/coyote/bobcat with hounds, call fox/coyote at night, goose/dove/crow hunt alittle, trap fox/coyote/coon around the house and bear hunt with both rifle/bow.
Not to mention I fish for practically everything that swims (from bluegill to salmon).
Yeah I'd say I'm addicted to the outdoors.
I won't even mention how much I spend on gear.

And in Somerset and Cambria County muskrat should be on the endangered species list.

The horizon is your starting point.
