I have learned just how little I know, I learned that, just beacause something works for others, it might not work for me, I learned that, its possable to be friends, even if you never met the person. I learned how to trap coons, make lure/bait, flesh animals, sew holes, and I also learned how to teach, learn, and argue about trapping.

I have learned more on this website than I have in the past two years trapping.I have learned about everything, bait, sets, and critters.
Some of the things I have learned about bait are how to make different kinds of bait and how not to ruin bait. You can ruin bait or oil with to much of something or if something is to strong. I have also learned that different smells and bait are better for different critters.
I have learned more sets than I ever knew existed. They are the Bill's gland and post, the flat set, big flashy dirt hole, trash pile set, and the PVC set. All of these sets are good in their own places, and for all kinds of critters. I have also learned it's good to double up with sets in intersections, and places that critters are using a lot.

On this forum i have already learned many aspects of trapping. I have learned about lure making and the different oils you use to make them. I have learned about signs of animals, raccoon, this will drasticly improve how i look for a good place to set a 'coon set. I think the fleashing beam (out of pvc) was also a great idea that i will try. I learned how to skin and flesh a raccoon and to tell if it is prime or blue. Im a beginner at this awesome sport or trapping an with everbodys help i believe i have speed up my learning curve drasticlly.. I just hope to teach everybody the same way you guys have taught me. With the knowledge i have learned from this site i believe i can make more effective sets, expierament with making lures, and above all use the information you have kindly shown me.. Thanks again for all you have taught me..
