Well, in search of something else to keep me busy through the winter, I am attending a trapping class tomorrow to be licensed to trap in Washington. I have grown to love Ice Fishing but its a weekend here and there due to traveling for it. Thinking I can trap much more locally.
Anyone here trap? Pros, cons, advice? Just any overall knowledge and place to dump thoughts on the subject.

I’m curious, did you finish the class and try any trapping? A buddy and I do a little trapping, but I’m
not sure how relevant any of my experience would be as we primarily do nuisance animal removal and not sport trapping.

I could have sworn that I read that as "tapped", probably due to the other thread. :ROFLMAO:

We do try to tan our own, but since we’re WCOs we can’t sell them or anything like that. I guess what I meant about relevant experience is abiding by Washington’s regular trapping regulations and such. Those beaver suitcase traps are pricey compared to foot holds and conibears.
