Basic Muskrat trapping

Knowing how to trap fur is an important part of being prepared.
Many times you will see on the web that someone has "put away" some snares in case they need them to feed themselves. Trapping is a learned skill some even go as far as to call it an art. If things are put away they are not being used and skills are not being improved upon. These folks will find out shortly after they need the food they are trying to catch how much skill trapping, and snaring in particular requires.

If you are preparedness minded you should put together a basic set of trapping gear and learn how to use it. Most trappers learned to trap catching a few muskrats. These little critters can provide fur, food and funds for the prepared person.

I have an article on Getting started in muskrat trapping here:
