  1. NY Region 3 Trapper

    First one of the year

    In very general terms: Furbearer’s trapped in foothold traps are dispatched usually by a .22. Body gripping traps kill the Furbearer. To properly process a Furbearer they are fleshed which is removing fat and sometimes membranes from the skin. Then they are dried on a board or wire. Once dry they can be sold to a fur buyer or tanned by a tannery. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Me too. Had a nice pond in Sterling Forest but I’m letting it recoup what I took. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I had five out for a couple of days. I use the marshmallows and fish oil for a trailing scent. I pulled them with last weekends rain. Hitting some beavers on Thursday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    European Mount Question

    I’m giving a European Mount a try. I boiled the skull to remove the meat. That went good. Looking for suggestions on the next two steps. 1) To degrease the left over remnants can I use dish soap bringing it to a soft boil? 2) To whiten the skull. Any recommended bleaching product or method. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Haven’t done much trapping this year but I put out some DP’s. Got this one before the round of tropical rains came through. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I stress looking for good bull frog spots. How accessible from an access point is this pond. I don’t know this area very well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is there a Category for Trapping? I couldn't see one and thought there was one under Small Game.

    NYS Youth Trapping Camps

    The youth camps still have openings. For those who don't know about these camps. This is brief synopsis. It's a total hands on experience. There is a meet and greet, followed by lectures on Friday evening. An Encon Officer will also come in and answer questions, etc. On Saturday-Sunday, the students go out and learn about trap sets, locations, habitat, etc. They are divided into two groups. Land and Water. In the afternoon they switch so each group can learn both. In between times, there is instructions on trap prep, skinning-fleshing, boarding, etc. On Monday, they do their final trap checks and will process any catches. Students who aren't already certified will receive certificates after they complete some additional class room instruction. The fee covers food costs. Everything else is done by donations from NYSTA, their Affiliates and other sources.
