If you are reading this blog piece or watching the associated video you have probably done your fair share of searching on trapping setups. A quick search on youtube will yield you dozens of snare, and configurations for trapping. What is desperately missing is WHERE to set those traps. I did not do my studying of trapping for survival uses. It was simply part of what I did as a kid. Kids today before and after school are on social media, video games, or playing sports. I was running traps. I did not have many and my trap line wasn’t very long. But I had a set of traps that I checked every morning on my walk to the school bus and on my way home.
Box traps, leg traps, and snares were all over the area in which I lived. It is a wonder that I did not catch more of my families cats and dogs.
In this video and those that came before it, we try to show you from time to time, some good spots to see wildlife. I do this because I recognize that not all of us want to be trappers. I too have gotten away from the regular daily practice of it. However, knowing where to look for wildlife is the best method to giving you a leg up if you want to set up traps, get prepared if you have gun or bow, or to simply study and observe them. If you know where to look for them, you will see them more often.
In this video I show you one spot that you can do exactly that. Fortunately with the snow on, tracks are easier to see and particularly easier to show on camera.
Come on, join in, let’s learn together!
