I wanted to talk to you everyone today about muskrat trapping. Here in southwest Pennsylvania we don’t have an over abundance of muskrats.

I am putting together a podcast series about why and how there is no post trapping season, its preseason! I know there are others that think this way while others put it on the back burner until the last minute. Excuse me if it seems sporadic at times, I was kind of shot gunning this from the hip while pulling traps on our closing day but wanted to start this while it was fresh in my mind.
I will try and record one of these episodes every week or two to let you know what I am doing this preseason to ensure that i have a better trapping season next year and that i will be ready to hit the ground running on opening day.
