If anyone wants to come from farther away you are more than welcome to put up a tent in the yard to avoid a long early morning drive.

My kids went through the class when they were about 7 or 8 and could comprehend what was going on and now help with the classes.

class length depends on mainly on whether or not a warden stops buy to go over regs and take questions. they did not stop buy last time as they were all either on vacation or had been told to cut hours due to extra time working flood areas. we should be done no later than 3-4 pm.

Dale if you want to sit in on the class for the 16th you are more than welcome to do so.

all depends on what you want to target.

Tattoo I have been pondering your question on cost of a start up kit with a mix of traps (3-4 of each) and fur handling supplies, lures, and trapline tools a person should be able to put together a starter kit for around 200.00 or so for all species.

beaver is allways good

Since (last I knew) you lived up that way, go upriver from the Dells and when you get to the part of the river with a bunch of islands set your traps for beaver there. The bastards keep stealing all the willows I use to camo my duck blind up. It would not be so bad if they would just go cut their own but they have to wait until I get them all cut and arranged on the blind and then they just come by and steal them.

In for two attendees per our PM conversation.


I'm thinking of breaking up a case (100) of Bravo Company 30 round AR mags.
Free shipping + WI Tax = $10.51/mag.
I'd be interested in a quarter or a third for myself.
If other attendees want to commit to the remaining 66-75 mags, I'll order them and deliver them to the class where we can settle up in cash.

Post interest or PM.
I'll update here whether or not it's going through.

Err ...

Wife put a stop to the mag buy because I told her we may end up buying trapping gear.
I had to pick one or the other, and we already have mags, so ...

Thanks again.
