I'm a Top Lot Trapper!!!

I arrived home from work this afternoon and checked the mail. There was a large letter from NAFA in there, I opened it inside was a certificate that stated: TOP LOT TRAPPER. CENTRAL WILD MINK FEMALE.

I'm a top lot trapper for the first time!

I actually have 2 fur handling videos. One is the NAFA fur handling video put out by the Wisconsin Trappers Association and Hal Sullivans Fur handling 2000. IMO, the NAFA one is much better. I also get great tips on youtube also!

Re: I'm a Top Lot Trapper!!!

The NAFA video is well worth the 20$...


I also have top lot coon handling video...its worth it too...


Actually didn't have either video till after the season though...lol.


Lots of good on YouTube...but a lot of junk too...


I'd recommend starting off with a decent knife...necker 600 isn't a bad knife and isn't super expensive...just make sure the sharp side is SHARP...


Some will say practice on roadkills, possum, skunk, small coon etc....I don't agree..you will learn some but the small coon or early roadkill or whatever doesn't have the neck gristle that a big boar in December will have...learning to shave of neck gristle was the hardest part for put up for me to grasp....fox are simple...smaller coon are easy...yotes aren't bad just take some time to skin and flesh...but learning to shave gristle off a big coon took some learning for me...


It can be hard messy time consuming work....but I find it very rewarding and enjoyable...
