If you want to catch more mink, otter and Raccoons on your trap line, you are going to enjoy this interview with Ryan. He fell prey to a problem all trappers face at one time or another. Learn from his “over education” and avoid trapper infomation over load.
This week on Trapping Across America we are interviewing Ryan, a proud red-blooded Cajun from Louisiana. Ryan is a fur trapper and also runs an Animal Damage Business. One thing that separates Ryan from a lot of control guys is that a lot of his clients a rice and crawfish farmers in South Louisiana. The money he saves the farmers is mind-blowing.
During todays interview, we talk about mink, raccoon and otter trapping. Learn how he caught 33 mink right off the bat when he started mink trapping. Then what he did to not catch a mink for two years. This is a story we should all listen to before every trapping season. We all do what Ryan did, we just have to correct it like he did. He also talks about how he targets otter, this is a super otter catching strategy if you will follow it. The direction of travel of the otter can and should determine what kind of sets you use.
We also get into fur prices and fur averages. This will step on a few toes, but he is speaking the truth and from a practical view of a fur check. You may be thinking that he could not be making any money in Louisiana since he traps so far south, you will be surprised.

PREDATOR CONTROL GROUP Product of the week is COON CRACK. Not only can you catch more raccoon with the odor and taste of COON CRACK, we put in a stimulant to crank up any raccoon. Once you get them wired up, they quit being timid and are easier to catch in your dog proof traps, cage traps or foot holds. If you are using COON CRACK in a DP trap, dribble some on the lip of the trap and let some run down into your bait. With a cage trap or foot hold, give them a treat out side of the cage, pocket set or dirt hole with some COON CRACK on it. For the stimulant to work, the raccoon needs to get some of the lure in their mouth. Drugs are addicting, so go make your own junkies and have far more raccoon pelts to sell this winter.
