Looking to pick up any trapping gear that might be available cheap. (I'm a poor boy.)
Don't mind travelling for the right stuff at the right price.
Thanks for lookin'.

Hey Mud, I'm just starting out, so I'm looking for anything that complies with AIHTS these days.
Mostly I'm looking for body grippers for beavers, but also interested in anything at all, really, until I can get some experience and figure out what I enjoy and don't enjoy. Also some cage live-traps if the price is right. Also might be interested in any associated gear like elbow-high gloves, aprons, knives, boards, etc.
I'm in Moncton but travel to F'ton and to Hampton to fish, occasionally.
I don't know how to put this diplomatically so I'll just say it plainly: I'm looking for some bargains. I'd can't spend big money on this only to find out that I don't particularly enjoy it or that I can't commit the amount of time it takes to do it right.
Feel free to reply here or to PM me if you got some stuff you want to part with.
Cheers!

I'm in Moncton as well.Beavers are a lot of work, and the market sucks for them right now.If I were you and was just startin out, I'd trap ****,Rats and Mink.In many places you can catch all three in the same sets.Rats are paying o.k., everything else is down.Don't forget to apply for your Cat tags.I'll let you know if I come across some gear.

I appreciate it Mud.
Sounds like you know a bit about trapping.
Those funnel traps for rats look like the easiest way to go, unless I'm missing something? Easy to make, easy to set, etc....?
Talking with an old gent one day who was trapping rats for years. He just likes going after rats. So last year when the price went thru the floor at the start of the season, he trapped them anyway, just for the enjoyment. Come the fur sale, the price had skyrocketed and he had a freezer full of pelts, all prepped nicely, lol, I was happy for him.
Don't hesitate to let me know if you hear of anything up for grabs. I've been looking for an old-timer who's packing it in and calling it a career, but even those guys don't want to part with their stuff, not that I blame 'em for hanging on to their stuff, either.

I normally trap a lot of fur.Most years hundreds of pelts.Subs work well, in the right location.Have you ever checked out the Canadian Trappers Alliance website?Lots of good info there.As is on Trapperman a U.S. site.
