I'm getting hooked

Went down to Cocolamus Creek Supply today in Juniata County and bought alot of supplies for trapping. Got some stretchers, a flesher, some lure, a fleshing beam, and a host of other things. I would say i'm getting serious now. Dutch is such a great guy to deal with, got alot of tips from him also.

My name is Moss and i'm a turkey huntin' addict

Re: I'm getting hooked

6 inches x 60 inches oak fleshing beam, good for all furs, muskrat to coyote...I'm going to mount it to my work bench in my shed with 2 2x4's underneath it, you have to make sure it doesn't move from side to side or up and down. I'll figure something out for that. A friend of mine who traps is going to help me with it.

Hey Moss use a 2x6 on the underside of you'r beam and cut a notch in it so you'r beam sit's in the notch tight then put a 2x4 on top to keep it from moveing up and down
