Trap Party

This is the best idea I have seen in a long time:

From: One of My Hunting Buddies
Location: “The Fur Shed”
When: Sunday, October [removed], 12:00pm
Phone: [deleted to protect the innocent]
2nd Annual Trap Boiling Party

What is my trap boiling party? An informal gathering of select individuals: a primer for the upcoming fall hunting and trapping season. Kids are welcome.

Topics of Conversation: Hunting, Trapping, Bow Season, Hunting Trips, Pheasant Stocking Program, Grouse Outlook, Bird Dogs, Guns, Bows, you get the picture.

The Following Topics are Banned from Discussion : ) Gary Alt’s resignation, The Ruffed Grouse Society, Deer Management in PA.

Activities: I will be boiling, waxing and prepping traps for the season. Everyone must entertain themselves as boiling traps requires constant attention. Attendees are welcome to help or simply observe. A former professional trapper will be on hand to answer any trapping questions and make a demo set or two. Anyone is welcome to bring their bow and shoot the 3-D course. Bird dogs are welcome but must be kenneled or tied up.

I will start around noon and finish by late afternoon (4-5pm). Feel free to stop by for any length of time.

Menu: I will have hot dogs, sauerkraut, cider, coffee, hot chocolate

    Gene, you need to go to this Trap Party…I think someone there has read your father’s book.
    He might be able to show you a trick or two.
