Photo Bottom Left - Below are some convention photos. First one is of Kelly Christensen at the She Traps booth buying supplies. He sold about 700 raffle tickets. Justin Westrup with a nice coyote he trapped. His card says "Swamp Man Trapping - Save A Tree, Trap A Beaver - Fur Harvester." Last but not least a photo of the bobcat trapping demo by Gary Leistico. Believe it or not, the silhouette in the background is Gary Leistico. Hope you don't mind Gary and Justin. I've had photos of Kelly before and he won't mind if you use the photo.

I did a emergency demo on nuisance beaver control because the scheduled demo person got stung by hornets and couldnt make it. Didnt have any equipment so borrowed some from dealers. Big Thank You goes to Minnesota Trapline Products, Cumberlands Trapping Supplies, and Schmitt Enterprises for making it possible.
Fur now,

Old Wolf Trap find:
It is a 4 1/2 Newhouse wolf trap. Usually, they have a longer chain with a snap and drag with it. It looks like this one has a chain from a different trap used to trap beavers because of the drowning slide lock added to it. Yes, they are a very valuable trap. I collected some vintage traps and even bought a 4 Newhouse on eBay from a gentleman who appened to be from Barnum. Wayne Suronen delivered it to the MTA Convention in Barnum. He dropped it off with Tom Boser, and I bought Wayne a raffle ticket for delivering it. Wayne Suronen might know more about them. I don't know what his phone number is or address, although it should be on the raffle ticket; if there is any way Tom can find the stub or Wayne Suronen's phone number should be in the Barnum phone book. By the way if you would like to sell it, I would be willing to make you an offer as I don't have a 4 1/2 Newhouse, and I'm especially into collecting traps used to trap beavers.
Fur now,
