    I'm curious how many folks hunt and trap.

    I love hunting and put a couple of deer in my freezer every year.

    I've got traps, but darn it, I have yet to find some private land. If I want to trap public, I have to submit a bid. (*~*)

    Only thing I have time to hunt is crows, squirrels and starlings (they all come to me, I don't have time to go looking for them), trapping is limited to squirrels, groundhogs and rats. Just too darn busy I guess!!

    I deer and turkey hunt and the only traping i do is for coon, i wouldn't trap them if the would leave my sweet corn alone. My son took a course on snare traps through the Mo. Dept. of conservation and done real well. He caught a Bobcat, several Coyote and Coons.Like G3 said, the farm takes most of our time. Jack

    i hunt deer and squirrel and would like to try turkey some time.

    trapping beaver and muskrat i've considered as well, but don't have the money, time or resources to trap. i would like to try it someday though.
