Trail Blazer is excited to host the upcoming trapping workshop taught by guest instructor David Schuppert. David is an expert trapper, hunter, and fisherman. David started his trapping career as boy setting traplines to catch muskrats near his home. As he got older David learned to skin and tan furs and enjoyed making various items from the finished hides. Even while serving in Vietnam David put his trapping skills to work ridding his camp of rats. David eventually found his way to a remote corner of Nova Scotia Canada where he bought 100 acres of wooded land. There he built a self sufficient homestead complete with log cabins, barns, livestock, gardens and a sawmill. David developed the homestead into a camp to help young men in need. The program taught, among other things, wilderness camping which included hunting, fishing, and of course trapping. Once the students learned to process their hides they were able to trade their furs with the Mic Mac Indians at the trading post. David has a passion for the outdoors and is a wonderful educator. This course will teach a variety of trap sets (both modern and primitive) and include hands on application.
