I'm from Sulphur, La ... been perusing your site for a couple weeks now. I've never trapped before but enjoy hunting, fishing and camping. I try to pull my son and grandson into all my outdoor activities and although i can enjoy just sitting around a fire or on a deer stand somewhere, my grandson needs action!! So, i thought i would give trapping a go! Probably won't be trapping this season, so my plan is to buy my traps after the first of the year ... degrease and let them sit for a few months and rust up. I'll then dye and wax well in advance of next year's season. In the meantime i have a small tract of land that i'm going to explore and cut some trails in. Can't wait!!
