Trapper's Tip of the Month for May
May is an excellent time to seek out new trapping sites.
Farmers are in the field now and if you've been itching to gain more trapping ground, all it takes is a friendly conversation and a handshake to line up additional acres to trap this fall.
So if you see a farmer (that's not busy,) out in his field on some ground you've been eye-ing for some time, there's no harm in approaching him or her, giving them your card (you really will benefit from having some cards printed up,) and obtaining their permission in writing to trap this coming season.
Shane did this very thing yesterday on the way home from a Mother's Day get-together and added 160 acres to his list of trapping venues.
It's as easy as that.
