Re: Where to find traps cheap???

Given the fur prices paid this season past, I seriously doubt the words 'cheap' and 'traps' can be used in the same sentence.

Did you see those fur prices paid at NAFTA auctions?

Given those, tell me, if you had any traps would you sell them cheaply? I think not.

Unless something drastic happens I predict would-be trappers to be coming out of the woodwork, buying up every trap they can and driving the price upward.

I could be wrong but I don't think I am.

Good luck.

I trap mink because I don't know any better

Put an add on craiglist. Put the word out on some forums, someone is looking to upgrade thier equipment and parlay thier present. You may find a deal. How many traps are you talking about? What animals will you pursue?

Don't buy cheap traps because they are cheap. Buy good equipment as inexpensively as possible.

Re: Where to find traps cheap???

Garage / yard sales is will you can find traps fairly cheap. Mostly because they found them hidden in the garage or shed and they just throw them out there because they don't know what they are worth. Outside of that, you won't find "cheap" traps unless your buying new Dukes.

The horizon is your starting point.

Noah, just read your post in the classified section.
What's the deal? Looks like you already have a few.
