Man, good luck finding

Man, good luck finding someone who still does that.  I remember back 25 years ago how big the fur trade was back in Vermont.  Muskrat, coyote, racoon, would all fetch a good amount of money.  However, the bottom fell out of the market, and it was hard to even give them away.  That was one of the probelms with the coyote population, people stopped trapping and shooting them because it was no longer a good way to make any money.

Yeah thats what I figured

I figured at least in Tenn anyway.  Maybe up north they bring more money. I want to get into for the fun of it. If we make $5 off of it then thats ok.  I try to constantly challenge myself to learn new things.  I came across a at home certified Gun Smith course that is even sponsered by the VA. I cant wait to start it.  Maybe in the spring.  I am also going to attempt to teach myself how to keep and condition the pelts for whatever I dont even know really.  I just like to learn and be involved with everything ourdoors.
