Buckshot, the author of the following articles and Buckshot's Modern Trapper's Guide to Xtreme Trapping for Safety, Survival, Profit, Pleasure
, has been trapping for 25
years in 5 different states. He has caught minks, raccoons, opossums, skunks,
red foxes, gray foxes, coyotes, bobcats, muskrats, fishers, otters, beavers,
ground hogs, snapping turtles, weasels, badgers and other game animals.
He has built a log cabin and lived off the land. He says "I love the woods
and being a free trapper in God's great outdoors."
Why is trapping important for survivalists? "The most important reason
I think everyone who plans to survive should know how to trap," says Buckshot,
"is that during the Great Depression the game animals were hunted down
to nothing, but the trapper always fed his family." You can contact
