• Complete guide to trapping raccoon, muskrat, mink, otter, beaver, and a variety of other species • Authoritative advice on matching the right trap--whether leg-hold, body gripper, or snare--to each furbearer • Species-specific instructions for making sets that deliver and tips for preparing and marketing pelts to maximize profits Trapping has become somewhat of a lost art, but interest in the sport is as strong as ever thanks to a stable fur market and a growing need to control mammal populations or remove nuisance animals. In Guide to Trapping, Jim Spencer covers strategies for successfully harvesting popular species such as raccoon, muskrat, mink, otter, beaver, coyote, gray fox, red fox, bobcat, skunk, and opossum. His entertaining and informative writing will appeal to trappers of all levels. Spencer discusses trap styles and the basics of establishing and working a trapline, including techniques for fastening and adjusting traps and a species-by-species review of trapping tactics for the country's most pursued furbearers. The field-tested techniques, carefully explained and illustrated, will help trappers make sets that deliver maximum results.

How to Trap And Snare: A Complete Manual For The Sportsman, Game Preserver And Amateur On The Art Of Taking Animals And Birds In Traps, Snares and Nets With Numerous IllustrationsBy William Carnegie "This manual is intended to provide as much practical insight into the various modes of trapping, snaring, and netting the animals and birds of the British Isles as can be furnished by writing. Whenever possible and desirable, such insight is given of the haunts and habitats of the creatures to be caught as may prove useful to the amateur or tyro, for whom it is more particularly planned, than for the professional. Every piece of work, device, trap, snare, or net described has been performed, employed, or made by the author, and it is hoped that the experience gained during many years may prove of advantage to others who may be induced to follow the Art of the Trapper, either for pastime or profit" William Carnegie, 1880.

Butchering Small Game and Birds is essential reading for those who have embraced self-sufficiency, and who regard small game and birds, both domesticated and wild, as an essential part of their diet. The book covers rabbits, hare, quail, chicken and turkey as well as game birds and provides comprehensive guidance relating to all aspects of the craft of butchery. It begins with an in-depth examination of equipment and presents instructions on how to use and maintain knives correctly. This is followed by a careful consideration of how to humanely dispatch the animal or bird for butchering with speed and precision. The volume then studies in detail the butchery techniques and procedures including basic small game and bird anatomy, the importance of meat inspection and hygiene and dealing with aged birds and animals. Further sections cover techniques such as paunching, the removal of offal, extraction of shot, skinning, plucking, drawing and dressing birds, washing carcases, jointing rabbits and hares and trussing. The preservation of meat, preparing meat for the freezer and hanging and curing of skins is also covered following the philosophy that every part of an animal or bird that is usable should be used. This invaluable book presents a complete manual for anyone who wishes to become a humane and skilled home butcher, and is superbly illustrated with 164 colour step-by-step photographs.
