I believe there’s been an uptick of used traps on Trapperman and Ebay. I’ve told my wife several times over the last couple weeks “ I’d like to have those but I don’t need them”. She hasn’t once said to go ahead and get them. I believe many are thinking th market is down for a long time as well as money getting tighter. Be a good time to lay some in if your a young trapper. I remember the boom in the 70’s when it ended. Lots got out and many trapping supply places and lure makers closed shop. I wonder if we’ll see this in the next couple years. Who knows where it’ll be in ten years.

The huge chest freezer I had all my furs in from this past season went bad and wasn’t discovered until it was too late. I about sold a bunch of my traps for some financial return, but knowing I would be taking another loss of money I decided to keep them. For some reason I just wasn’t meant to sell the furs I guess. Thankfully freezers are cheap around here!
