    Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a fellow trapper located here in the Louisville area. Just got back into trapping this year. Kids are grown and now that i'm semi retired I have the time to trap again.
    Back in the 80's and 90's when I trapped my best year for foxes was 126 reds and our best year on a water line we took over 1200 muskrats. I hope to meet some of you at the auction in E-town on Feb 23rd. If anyone wants to get together and talk trapping give me a shout. I'm planning to run a long line next year and might be looking for a partner.

    Welcome.

    One word of advice... never introduce yourself as Newguy. :D

    (that's an inside joke that you'll pick up on quickly if you are into basketball, politics or just browse the community forum) :D

    Thanks for the replies hope I can be of help. It's been a while since I trapped but I hope I can tribute something and I'm I sure I can learn alot from you guys also. Back when I trapped there was no otter or bobcats and I would like to learn how to do that. Steven s I see you guys are down in breckinridge area I have a small farm in webster and some family that lives down that way. by your numbers it looks like the coyote's have taken over down there. I hope you catch everone of them. I only got 2 coons today and pulled the rest of my traps. I got a small farm down in bullit co. that the lady wants me to come get all the coons but not here pet foxes LOL so I guess I will be using just the DP's. Is the auction on the 23rd? At what time does it start?

    Just another nut for the nut house Joey :)
