Re: Greatest pa trapper

How about 400 possum per year?

The horizon is your starting point.

X2! With the price of fox at the auction this year, 5 fox would have been great! I got skunked on fox this year. The mink and coon were OK though.

That would be about $2,000.

Wow Nittany, That means you average $5.00 a possum?! Where are you selling your furs at? I figured more like $400.00 for 400 possum.....

Re: Greatest pa trapper

I agree that the most fur does not equate to the greatest trapper. I offer these two names, Ned Weston and Barry Warner they both have worked and done an enormous amount to promote and educate others on trapping and the outdoors.

Re: Greatest pa trapper

I agree with these last statements.Alot of great trappers don't have the time or desire to make trapping into a numbers game.I enjoy trapping as a relief and don't have any desire to turn it into a job.We all know its hard work but to get big numbers it becomes a job;no thanks.Sharing your knowledge, to me, would make you a great trapper;not numbers
