I can answer most basic questions concerning predator trapping and some water trapping. Questions about lures, baits, sets, traps, trap treatment, modification, sizes, equipment, usage, etc. I have been certified by the Okla. Dept. of Wildlife Conservation, the old First Okla. Trapper`s Assoc., and the Okla. State Univ. Extension Service as a trapping instructor, and in years past have given classes to people wishing to learn the sport...I also have a couple decades experience in predator calling and can provide some basic answers to these questions as well.
30+ years running my own traplines, and 60+ years experience as a hunter, shooter, fisherman, and outdoorsman.
I have been certified by the Okla. Dept. of Wildlife Conservation, the old First Okla. Trapper`s Assoc., and the Okla. State Univ. Extension Service, as a trapping instructor... I have also received personal instruction from two professional ADC specialists.
As far as teaching what I know to others. I take this to be what you mean here... I have helped my son, and son in law, as well as given classes to a number of other people in this area, to help get them started in trapping and predator calling... I have had personal instruction from 2 professional government ADC specialists, and I have over 30 years experience running my own traplines, and 60+ years of experience in the outdoors...... I have a friend who is a troop leader with the Boy Scouts. In the past I have done several demonstrations on trapping and predator calling for the boys, and on a number of occasions have helped the troop to set up and run a trapline during the winter, with proceeds going to the troop.
Besides being enjoyable, and allowing a person to see and experience things that few others will ever see or experience, trapping and predator calling are two of the very few hunting-related sports that can actually pay for themselves, as well as show a profit for those willing to put in the work.

Hello Richard, Well, I have to apologize here as I have tired on several occasions to catch coyotes in cages, with no success.... While I have never had any experience with Jackals, I understand they
Hello Richard, It's difficult for me to say whether you used the lure "improperly", without my seeing exactly what you did. Generally, a lure will say on it how much to use. Follow these directions
Hello Richard, The mature coons, as well as the younger ones, will be checking the waterways all year. It is a natural source of food for them, and so they "run it" year round. Even those old big silver-tip
