Question
Hey Mongo, It's Don again,I know ya-all had a nice time on your vacation, My wife and I lived in Vegas for a few years, its better to visit than live, it has it's good side and bad, But we are country folk and will stay in Oklahoma. My question is Im looking into more experience to help in my trapping, Im looking to get a DVD, Do you think that Dirt Holes Beyond the Basics by Clint Locklear would be a plus? and thanks again and God Bless.

Answer
Hello Again Don,

Yes, Vegas was fun, and my wife and I have talked about visiting again in a couple of years, if the Good Lord is willing and my health allows. But, we shall have to just wait and see... But Vegas strikes me in some ways like NYC or LA...nice places to visit a time or two, if for no other reason than to be able to say you had...but I wouldn't want to actually live there...LOL

Don, I have to apologize here, because I've never even heard of "Dirt Holes Beyond the Basics" by Clint Locklear..... In fact, while I have maybe half a dozen assorted books on trapping or calling (mostly older books), and mostly on the basics, I have never seen a trapping video, other than what I may have seen on the computer here. So, I really can't advise on this...and I do apologize for that.

Expertise

I can answer most basic questions concerning predator trapping and some water trapping. Questions about lures, baits, sets, traps, trap treatment, modification, sizes, equipment, usage, etc. I have been certified by the Okla. Dept. of Wildlife Conservation, the old First Okla. Trapper`s Assoc., and the Okla. State Univ. Extension Service as a trapping instructor, and in years past have given classes to people wishing to learn the sport...I also have a couple decades experience in predator calling and can provide some basic answers to these questions as well.

Experience

30+ years running my own traplines, and 60+ years experience as a hunter, shooter, fisherman, and outdoorsman.

Education/Credentials
I have been certified by the Okla. Dept. of Wildlife Conservation, the old First Okla. Trapper`s Assoc., and the Okla. State Univ. Extension Service, as a trapping instructor... I have also received personal instruction from two professional ADC specialists.

Past/Present Clients
As far as teaching what I know to others. I take this to be what you mean here... I have helped my son, and son in law, as well as given classes to a number of other people in this area, to help get them started in trapping and predator calling... I have had personal instruction from 2 professional government ADC specialists, and I have over 30 years experience running my own traplines, and 60+ years of experience in the outdoors...... I have a friend who is a troop leader with the Boy Scouts. In the past I have done several demonstrations on trapping and predator calling for the boys, and on a number of occasions have helped the troop to set up and run a trapline during the winter, with proceeds going to the troop.
