I’ve known Andy Weiser for some time now. He has paid his trapping dues as much as anyone. Out of high school, Andy left Ohio for better trapping grounds. He landed in Montana where he has built a reputation as an excellent coyote trapper. Andy traps year-round. Ranchers trust and depend on him. Twice he has taken his coyote killing skills to ranchers in central Mexico. His wealth of knowledge is broad and deep.
Andy is a straight shooter. He tells it like it is. He has many trusted friends, both in and out of the trapping industry. Somehow he has fostered friendships with the best of the best trappers ever. Many have passed on, and some are unknown in the larger circles. No doubt these friendships have been fulfilling and made him so knowledgeable.
At the minimum, you will enjoy this video. I guarantee it. I can’t imagine you won’t learn from it. I spent a week with Andy filming it. I brought home way more than raw footage. - Mark Steck
The comment I heard the most about my first book, Mega Mink Methods, is that trappers were excited to learn exactly what they needed to know to trap mink in numbers. They were appreciative that twenty different sets were not explained, when a couple of sets is all you need.
What was most gratifying to me was hearing from trappers that, after they used methods shown in my first book, they went out on THEIR TRAPLINE and increased THEIR CATCH. This is what led me to write the book you are looking at now, Mega Lining Mink and Coon Trapping. I want you to be able to take information in this book, and apply it to your own trapline to become a better trapper. This book shows you the best sets to use for mink and raccoon. But that is only the beginning! It explains in detail how to plan, set up, and operate a trapline for mink and raccoon that maximizes YOUR productivity. Exactly what you need to do, and equally important, what not to do. No matter what size trapline you run, if you use the information presented in this book, you will catch more animals.
The author, Gerald Schmitt, is a well-known longline mink and raccoon trapper from Minnesota. He has the trapping seasons, miles, and catch numbers behind him. In this book, he shares the methods and techniques he has used to become a successful trapper.
