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
