Trapping Radio 77 Charlie dobbins


trapping radio podcast This week on Trapping Across America, we are going down memory lane with Mark Kolher about Charlie Dobbins. Mark and Charlie were good friends back in the day. Charlie wrote most of his books and articles at Marks farm. I asked Mark to tell us about Charlie. Who was Charlie Dobbins? What was he like to trap with. Most everyone knows of Charlie Dobbins, But I thought most trappers would like to hear a first hand account of the man. One thing that became clear to me during this interview was that Charlie loved trapping and was as tough as nails.

    GREAT interview! Thank you Clint for doing this historic interview, and thank you Mr Kohler for sharing your story and your wonderful memories of Mr Dobbins. I already had a great respect for Mr Dobbins as a trapper but now I have a new respect for him as a man and as an American hero.

    If I may take this opportunity to put in an interview request, I’d love hear an interview with Russ Carman. He’d likely say no, but maybe with some coaxing?
