I have been very busy all summer long with this. These will be given out to new trappers at no cost at our fall convention.
They will get to use the gear for the season and then return it so I can set up a new trapper the following year.
We had some traps donated by some guys getting out of trapping. The next step was to repair, sort, dye and trade the traps that were not kid friendly off for ones that were.
Next I cleaned old paint buckets out (my brother is a sandblaster) so they were free. Then made a stencil to paint on them.
I sent off for info that I could put with the gear about trapping, regulations,membership forms for our assosiation, ect.
Also made a agreement form and cover letter about my mission statement.
I want to thank all the people who have donated items, a special thanks to Dave Erdkamp who helped with the dirt sifters and donated the materials to make them. Also Carolina Foxer who donated several bottles of lure, Thanks again Curt! If I can get just one new trapper a year I will be very happy.
Here is a basic starter kit.
If anybody has some broken or unused gear they want to donate they can contat me. Thanks for looking..Wynn
