Cooking traps this weekend the old fashion way.

I Havent used walnut hauls to cook traps in many years,,,I was thinking earlier in the summer how cool it would be to not use dye and go back to my roots. Needless to say im pretty pumped up about cooking them the way I did as a kid.

IF IT SMELLS LIKE FISH....EAT THE WHOLE DISH.

Re: Cooking traps this weekend the old fashion way.

The old fashion way? with a fire? Something I learned about using walnuts-- put them in a cloth bag it keeps a lot of debris off your traps.

But I love the smell of logwood.

Have fun BDR

The old fashion way is the best way. Have fun.




I didn't make it to the gym today. That makes five years in a row.

Re: Cooking traps this weekend the old fashion way.

Old Norm was a muskrat trapper.
He began trapping later in life.
He used Blake & Lamb "Surehold" longsprings.
Every spring Old Norm would bundle up his traps
by the rings on the end of the chain and
put them in a burlap feed sack.
He would take the traps to the service station
where he purchased his gasoline. The service
station operator allowed Old Norm to dip his
sack of traps into the barrel where the used
crankcase oil was drained. The oiled traps
were hung in Old Norm's cellar to await the next
trapping season. His traps never had a bit
of rust on them.

I trap mink because I don't know any better
