I took the CT Trapping Class today. It was a great class, taught by a lot of good people. There were a surprising number of young kids and families. I think that's a great thing.

So, trapping (at least in CT) is not for me. It's not the fact that you have to check the traps every day (it's humane), or the fact that the trapping season is in the dead of winter (when no one else is using the wilds), is the fact that I can't really trap what I wanted to trap.

In CT, you can only trap in the water. The only exception is coyotes. I'm not particularly interested in trapping beavers, musk rats, otters, or coyotes. Really, I only wanted to trap rabbits. So, to hell with it. I'm not really interested in curing hides for money, and the critters are mostly too yucky or stinky to eat.

It turns out you can trap raccoons pretty much anyway. Yup. Ok.

So, I learned a lot, but like I said, it's not something I'm likely to do here. Perhaps next year I can finally get the hunter's safety class.
