The Pennsylvania Trappers Association, District Two is looking for new members, young and old.

Running a trapline is a great way to extend time in the outdoors in addition to the standard hunting and fishing seasons.

For those who may have no experience trapping but want to learn how, Pennsylvania Trappers District Two is offering a free 44-page booklet, “From Trapline to Fur Shed.” The booklet is written by noted professional trapper Russ Carman of New Milford and illustrated by wildlife artist Dennis Bushey of Florida.

The booklet details the type of equipment needed for trapping various furbearers; trap care and treatment; making land and water sets; and pelt handling and skinning.

In short it covers all the basics of fur trapping in a nutshell.

This easy to read booklet contains more than 20 drawings detailing dry land and water sets and a half dozen or so photos of young trappers with their catches.

Again, the booklet is free upon request courtesy of Pennsylvania Trappers Association District Two from District Two president Paul Murray. The booklet is free but since Murray is mailing it at his own expense he would appreciate enclosing $1 with each request to cover postage and handling costs. For a copy of “Trapline to Fur Shed,” write Paul Murray, RD2 Box 225B, Kittanning, Pa. 16201.
