Trapping Gear To Get You Started
As a beginner, sometimes it’s hard to figure out what you need to get started in a particular sport or hobby. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of trapping gear to get you started. Most of this gear can be found in most, if not all, trapper’s backpacks (or baskets). Depending on your state, gear may be different based on rules and regulations.
A hatchet that can also be doubled as a hammer (like this one) is extremely useful. Use the hammer side to drive stakes/anchors into the ground and use the hatchet side to break up the ground and roots for the perfect trap placement. There’s also a tool called a sod buster that is made specifically for this task which has a chisel welded on one side of a hammer for easy digging of trap bed.
