Met a local trapper..

Recommended Posts

So I'm driving past one of the farms I hunt, and I see a truck parked in the field.  I pull in and within a few minutes, a guy walks over. Hes been trapping there for several years, but I have never ran into him until today.  Had a great conversation and he agreed to let me tag along a few mornings when he checks his traps.  

Never trapped before, so I'm looking forward to seeing how things are done.  Maybe I'll catch the bug, and put a few coyote sets out.. 

He said right now, beaver is in demand because of the show Yellowstone. He said the sales of cowboy hats are high, and made from beaver do to the natural water repellents.  Mentioned NYS trooper hats are made from beaver also.

I think it's just stetsons iirc and i'm sure other brands do too, but a known staple of the stetson brand.
