Re: How many Trappers....
I trapped for muskrats,mink and foxes when I was younger. Caught quite a few "rats" and a few mink fewer foxes. I really loved trapping and was always amazed at the beauty of the fur. I felt really bad however when I found a muskrat had chewed his leg off to get out of trap that was staked. I always set drowning sets therafter or used conibear trap.
I cant stand to see an animal suffer. I kind of got away from trapping as I got older but am real glad for the experience. foxes are really sharp and hard to get I found.
