“ My Collegiate Trap line.”

Boys, trapping is more than a great source of exercise and adventure. It is a great skill to have. It will help you be a better,
if a little stranger person. It will help you put food on the table and provide security for your home and your family.
When I was a music major at the University of Texas at Austin in the early 70s.
I studied music theory and applied piano.
Times were tough monetarily, and besides learning how to make my own pizzas from scratch...
I was tired of studying one day and decided to take a walk down to the park. I was strolling along looking at the giant pecan trees and enjoying the fall weather. I couldn’t help but notice that there were at least two dozen squirrels out picking up nuts and storing them for the winter.
An idea came to me and since I was a trapper and had learned my craft well,
I went home and got two #1 ˝ coil springs and went back to the park. After picking up a gallon of pecans and cracking them so as to make an irresistible offering. I set a coil and put a handful of pecans under and on the pan. And just went over and sat down and watched the trap. It was all of five minutes till a squirrel came over and was messing around my trap and pop! Hmmm! Hmmm! Hmmm! I had a squirrel! One or two more and I pulled my line and went home carrying the squirrels in a sack so as not to alarm the locals. I went back to my apartment and skinned and grilled the squirrels over a fire.
And they were not tough but really good eating!
And for free!
