    im interested in getting started trapping after checking this forum out. I think my son would love it! problem is i know nothing about it. could yall answer a few questions for me?

    1. Is trapping cover under the $25 license?

    2. where do you sell hides? seen a few locations on here already.

    3. how do you prepare them for sale? tanned?

    4. what the basics of getting started as far as equipment goes?

    thanks in advance for any responses.

    Trapping is covered under the Sportsmans License, but you also need to get a trappers permit, which is free from AGFC. Lots of places to sell hides. You can sell in the round, green, or finished. If I was just starting, I would start with something fairly easy, a couple of 1.5 coils for coons, and some 330 conibears for beaver.

    I'd suggest jumping forums, register and start asking the same questions.

    You find a more targeted population and also may find someone close to
    give you some "On The Trap Line" experience.
