Trapping Tales from The Wild North

If you’re like me you’ve idly wished for a simple life of trapping and long hunting while sitting in your warm house. But we wake up and realize that it is a life of privation and hardship most of us aren’t prepared for.

That in mind these videos by YouTube Channel The Wild North gives you a glimpse into modern trapping and a taste into the hard work it takes to run a real trapline. Be warned, Canadians curse a lot:

Part II:

Part III:

There are more videos to enjoy, and disillusion you armchair trappers out there.

    Great stuff! Learning from one who does rather than some couch commando. Its a ruff life but beats the big city.

    I often daydream of become a full time trapper or woodsbum. But all the real money is up north and I love my SC weather too much. One of these days I’ll take off to the swamp and build me a shack, hunt some gators and hunt some ‘seng.

    I could watch this stuff all day long, you are living my dream! Maybe in my next life, eh?

    Keep the videos coming! I make a cup of coffee and sit and watch these trapping videos. For hours. Your living the dream of so many of us. Also I was wondering if their is a lot. Of muskrats in your area? With the 10 dollar price per rat you could make a good profit. The beaver lynx mink and wolverine videos are awesome. I watch everyone with great ethusiasm. Give charlie a pat on the head for me. I lost my chocolate lab last year and still miss her. Good luck in the wild north.

    Congrats’s Andrey great video’s, I trapped for 40+ years I envy your youth. Here on the rock i lived in the remote country with just my good friend jake a faithful brown lab. Watching you and Charlie brings back good memories of those good times. I,am looking forward to view your new show as I know you are genuine and very entertaing and helpful to the younger trappers. Be safe my friend, be careful handling chainsaws etc. boil your drinking water, a trappers worst nightmare is beaver fever. Enjoy the years with Charlie as he is only young yet. i was wondering if you are familiar with the one inch wide strip of a trucks tire inner tube which saves on traps and snare throwers good sets=full sets….A friend in trapping!!
