00:00:37.820 –> 00:00:43.660
So folks wanted to talk about today before we get into some other stuff about free speech

00:00:43.660 –> 00:00:47.240
in the sense of Elon Musk and Twitter

00:00:47.240 –> 00:00:50.280
apparently a bunch, you know

00:00:50.440 –> 00:00:56.800
Elon Musk and Twitter, I just I don’t know what else to say about this besides being somebody who’s into tech

00:00:56.800 –> 00:01:03.760
the apparently this whole this whole thing is just getting a little bit out of hand right now with this looks like it possibly

00:01:03.760 –> 00:01:06.660
Looks like he’s kind of running up short on getting the money

00:01:06.660 –> 00:01:13.000
A lot of people don’t realize this though, but if he does not come up with the money by a certain date

00:01:13.000 –> 00:01:16.500
He’s gonna have to pay Twitter like I think like a billion dollars

00:01:16.500 –> 00:01:19.600
For starting this deal not closing it

00:01:20.320 –> 00:01:22.800
a lot of people don’t a lot of people don’t know that and

00:01:22.800 –> 00:01:27.120
It’s kind of nuts because you know you think about it as somebody who?

00:01:27.120 –> 00:01:32.880
You know, he’s he wants to buy Twitter because he wants to make it like that that free speech

00:01:32.880 –> 00:01:36.180
thing that Trump is doing but

00:01:36.180 –> 00:01:41.920
You know, it’s it’s an interesting situation in the sense that like I said if you don’t

00:01:41.920 –> 00:01:47.880
If you if he doesn’t buy it within a certain amount of time, he can’t come up with the money

00:01:48.580 –> 00:01:50.600
He’s gonna and I know he’s gonna have to pay some FCC

00:01:50.600 –> 00:01:56.040
I think Smith I think some fines because I think so he disclosed all the deals all the the whole

00:01:56.040 –> 00:02:03.240
Thing with this deal publicly and you’re not supposed to actually do that when you’re in talks to buy a company like this for billions

00:02:03.240 –> 00:02:04.120
of dollars

00:02:04.120 –> 00:02:09.540
It’s all supposed to be hush-hush with the shareholders and he has not been very hush-hush about it

00:02:09.540 –> 00:02:13.900
He’s been very open and public about it and now he’s gonna I mean for him

00:02:13.900 –> 00:02:17.640
I mean a million dollar fine take a drop of the bucket when you’re the richest man in the world

00:02:18.160 –> 00:02:22.920
but he’s also gonna face some backlash about this because apparently Tesla’s not happy because he’s

00:02:22.920 –> 00:02:27.980
Leveraging his Tesla stock to be able to come up with part of the money. So I

00:02:27.980 –> 00:02:30.600
Think it’d be really great if he did, you know

00:02:30.600 –> 00:02:36.700
You know if he does get it and does open it up and does make it a more of a free speech platform

00:02:36.700 –> 00:02:38.700
I’m all for that

00:02:38.700 –> 00:02:40.660
especially with that

00:02:40.660 –> 00:02:42.660
You hold situation with him. I

00:02:42.660 –> 00:02:46.240
Do think I mean I do think he what he wants to do is definitely cool

00:02:46.240 –> 00:02:49.200
And I do think that it would be definitely something we need

00:02:49.200 –> 00:02:52.060
There’s not many

00:02:52.060 –> 00:02:54.740
mainstream right-wing

00:02:54.740 –> 00:02:58.200
Kind of things, you know parlor is part

00:02:58.200 –> 00:03:03.080
You know when you look at parlor or a telegram or any of those kinds of services

00:03:03.080 –> 00:03:07.580
There are drop in the bucket compared to something like a Facebook or a Twitter

00:03:07.580 –> 00:03:11.740
Even Twitter is really a drop in the bucket compared to Facebook when you look at Facebook

00:03:11.740 –> 00:03:15.700
I think they have so Facebook has something like two or three billion users

00:03:15.880 –> 00:03:18.140
While Twitter has two or three hundred million

00:03:18.140 –> 00:03:24.200
So really it really is just a drop in a drop

00:03:24.200 –> 00:03:31.200
I mean, I mean while Twitter is very prevalent and everybody uses it and it’s definitely mainstream. It is definitely a much smaller

00:03:31.200 –> 00:03:36.480
Market than Facebook as far as user base goes. It just it just is

00:03:36.480 –> 00:03:40.680
I mean, I think I think people go to Twitter to find out information

00:03:40.680 –> 00:03:42.640

00:03:42.640 –> 00:03:48.940
Like I said, it is it is much smaller in comparison to something like Facebook and obviously Twitter

00:03:48.940 –> 00:03:53.700
You know, the other thing with Twitter is to obviously got a lot of attention during the whole Trump administration

00:03:53.700 –> 00:03:57.380
because he used it pretty much exclusively but um

00:03:57.380 –> 00:04:01.480
You know Elon is running into issues. Like I said, he’s having issues coming up in the money

00:04:01.480 –> 00:04:08.980
He stopped fundraising. He’s having these he’s he’s had an issue coming up as much money as he needs to buy it to take it

00:04:08.980 –> 00:04:10.700
Private. I mean, there’s a lot of money

00:04:10.700 –> 00:04:16.520
And the other problem is too. I think there’s another issue and I’m not I am definitely by far not a takeover kind of guy

00:04:16.520 –> 00:04:21.620
I don’t know. I know a lot about business, but I’m not sure but I do know that the stock price that he promised

00:04:21.620 –> 00:04:25.620
Is $20 more than what the stock is now

00:04:25.620 –> 00:04:28.740
That’s why the boards pushing so hard to get this through because they don’t want to lose that

00:04:28.740 –> 00:04:35.080
And I know he’s been really working hard on trying to close. I think he was working hard to close it

00:04:35.080 –> 00:04:39.920
I’m wondering if he kind of just loved maybe lost interest in it or kind of realizes maybe that he can’t come up with the money

00:04:40.880 –> 00:04:46.020
Or I mean, you know, I don’t know but like I said, I’m curious to see what he’s gonna do

00:04:46.020 –> 00:04:52.240
we all know true social while it’s doing good is is nowhere near on the caliper of a Twitter or Facebook and

00:04:52.240 –> 00:04:55.000
you know, it’s just one of those things where

00:04:55.000 –> 00:04:58.120
you know, he’s gonna have to I

00:04:58.120 –> 00:05:04.520
Know he’s got a like a billion from this person a billion from this person. He’s gotten money from this one money from that one

00:05:04.520 –> 00:05:05.440

00:05:05.440 –> 00:05:10.940
He’s leveraging his Tesla stock to borrow money, but I just I just I don’t know if he and I think he’s on

00:05:10.940 –> 00:05:16.220
I think he definitely what he wants to do is is definitely would be great if we can have an open platform where people

00:05:16.220 –> 00:05:22.800
Can speak I know sometimes Twitter is like the wild wild west and people have gained the system and stuff like that, but

00:05:22.800 –> 00:05:24.960
I’m curious to see

00:05:24.960 –> 00:05:29.480
What’s gonna happen is I know a lot of times if you say stuff to flag it and then you’re kind of in like Twitter jail

00:05:29.480 –> 00:05:33.160
For a few days. I know that happened to a couple people on Facebook who are very

00:05:33.680 –> 00:05:35.920
well happen to a lot of people that are very progressive and

00:05:35.920 –> 00:05:40.320
You know, I I don’t think it’s right that you know

00:05:40.320 –> 00:05:43.080
You you say what you say and then you get flagged if that is your beliefs

00:05:43.080 –> 00:05:49.160
But I know there’s also this whole thing about fake news and and and you know propaganda and and all this we see

00:05:49.160 –> 00:05:55.320
Yeah, somebody like, you know, how Alex Jones is on, you know, it’s being sued and and for his you know

00:05:55.320 –> 00:05:59.280
not only for the Sandy Hook shootings, but for things he said about people and

00:06:00.680 –> 00:06:08.160
You know sharing fake news and this is a lot of stuff right now that you know, just it would be great to have an open

00:06:08.160 –> 00:06:13.920
Platform where you can speak freely and not have to worry about getting

00:06:13.920 –> 00:06:19.400
You know put in, you know Facebook or your you know, Twitter jail, and I think that would be a good thing for Twitter

00:06:19.400 –> 00:06:21.400
I do think what he wants to do

00:06:21.400 –> 00:06:23.120
Is a good idea

00:06:23.120 –> 00:06:28.680
But I do think it’s going to be he’s gonna have a heck of a time as somebody who has a background in technology and programming

00:06:29.040 –> 00:06:36.400
It is gonna what he’s trying to do is a great idea, but programically technology wise is he’s gonna have a really tough time

00:06:36.400 –> 00:06:39.560
I mean, I know if it ever if he buys it

00:06:39.560 –> 00:06:43.480
it’s gonna be an uphill battle because anytime you’re trying to

00:06:43.480 –> 00:06:46.560
do something like that and trying to

00:06:46.560 –> 00:06:51.040
You know make an open platform like that you have to have moderation

00:06:51.040 –> 00:06:56.680
Moderating is where the difficult part is because what says something’s fake what says something isn’t

00:06:57.000 –> 00:07:01.680
And that’s kind of the trouble that Twitter and Facebook are having a lot of people are saying they’re trying to you know

00:07:01.680 –> 00:07:06.100
Silence the the right the or the extreme right or whatever

00:07:06.100 –> 00:07:12.880
with these platforms and the problem is it’s a lot of times, you know, the algorithm and the

00:07:12.880 –> 00:07:18.640
Just the way things are have to be done programically and all that kind of stuff. It’s very

00:07:18.640 –> 00:07:21.640
it’s complicated and it’s

00:07:21.640 –> 00:07:25.480
in other times you have people that are that are like you may have somebody who

00:07:26.240 –> 00:07:31.540
actually like a person that needs to intervene and take a look and it’s it’s a tough thing because you know,

00:07:31.540 –> 00:07:33.120
these things are very

00:07:33.120 –> 00:07:37.800
it’s not as easy as just you know, let everything go because you can’t let everything go because

00:07:37.800 –> 00:07:43.700
If you ever seen the spam or the garbage that comes through these kind of services

00:07:43.700 –> 00:07:46.220
They have to regulate to a certain degree

00:07:46.220 –> 00:07:53.920
But the problem is is it can go too far and it’s a very tough thing to regulate a social media platform

00:07:53.920 –> 00:07:57.320
I know it doesn’t sound like it from looking from the outside looking in but

00:07:57.320 –> 00:08:01.000
It is because you have the algorithm that does the first part of it

00:08:01.000 –> 00:08:05.560
you have the algorithm that flags and then sometimes actual people have to go through these things and

00:08:05.560 –> 00:08:10.400
And look at them and then that and then of course that leaves it now in the eye of the beholder the person that’s reading

00:08:10.400 –> 00:08:11.880
it so it’s

00:08:11.880 –> 00:08:17.800
It is much more complicated believe it or not. Then what you know, it’s a leaf to say just leave everything go

00:08:18.400 –> 00:08:24.080
It can get like the wild wild west especially with the the spam and the garbage and the other thing they have to watch out for

00:08:24.080 –> 00:08:28.420
Scams a lot of people will on an open platform like that. They’ll try to scam the people

00:08:28.420 –> 00:08:30.760

00:08:30.760 –> 00:08:36.800
You know into these virus scams or into these these these cryptocurrency scams or or trying to you know

00:08:36.800 –> 00:08:39.960
So you you do have to regulate to a certain degree

00:08:39.960 –> 00:08:43.420
for security and safety of your users

00:08:44.140 –> 00:08:49.680
But then you also to have to you know watch which it is it is it I’m not gonna lie somebody who who has worked

00:08:49.680 –> 00:08:51.760
In a technology industry. It’s a very tough situation

00:08:51.760 –> 00:08:58.680
Email it’s a prime example is how many times do you email get hit with spam gets stuck in the spam form? It’s not spam

00:08:58.680 –> 00:09:01.880
Because programically you can only

00:09:01.880 –> 00:09:05.680
You know do so much where then it gets flagged

00:09:05.680 –> 00:09:08.120
So I think I do think if anybody could do it

00:09:08.120 –> 00:09:10.420
It would be Elon because I think he has the resources

00:09:11.060 –> 00:09:14.960
And all that kind of stuff to put the right people in place to try to figure this out

00:09:14.960 –> 00:09:19.680
And like I said for secure you can’t be totally open because you do have to you know

00:09:19.680 –> 00:09:21.680
Worry about the safety and security of your users

00:09:21.680 –> 00:09:24.760
But how do you be open without?

00:09:24.760 –> 00:09:28.560
Regulating the speech it it is a tough it is something light is it?

00:09:28.560 –> 00:09:33.360
If you don’t understand technology or you’ve never worked in behind the scenes of programming

00:09:33.360 –> 00:09:40.400
You know, it’s a it can be a very difficult thing to to really to figure out and I and for his sake I hope

00:09:41.380 –> 00:09:45.280
I hope he gets it. I know, you know the true social network still having a lot of trouble

00:09:45.280 –> 00:09:49.780
That was actually built on what they call Mastodon, which is an existing platform

00:09:49.780 –> 00:09:54.220
which was really designed not for what they’re doing it with and

00:09:54.220 –> 00:09:59.680
You know, I know they had struck a little bit of a little bit of an issue with

00:09:59.680 –> 00:10:05.740
With true social so I hope they hope they do figure it out and I hope he I hope they

00:10:06.840 –> 00:10:12.180
You know, it does, you know, either did you just figure out whether the financing cuz I think that’s what the holdup is

00:10:12.180 –> 00:10:16.020
He’s saying there’s a lot of bots on Twitter, which there are he’s saying there’s not a lot of real accounts

00:10:16.020 –> 00:10:21.480
and and I really do believe that especially after and I know a lot of people join Twitter because

00:10:21.480 –> 00:10:24.840
President Trump was on there and I know a lot of people left

00:10:24.840 –> 00:10:31.160
So I know that what he’s probably looking at and this has been in the the news the other day was that he wants to see

00:10:31.160 –> 00:10:38.960
How many active accounts are there and how many versus how many accounts are bots versus how many accounts are dormant versus I mean

00:10:38.960 –> 00:10:45.060
You know, he is I do understand that because you know, they’re saying they have 350, you know

00:10:45.060 –> 00:10:49.600
Million people and I bet that number has gone down to be honest with you

00:10:49.600 –> 00:10:53.380
I know a lot of people have you know left the platform

00:10:53.380 –> 00:11:00.580
You know since the you know since since the whole situation with

00:11:01.300 –> 00:11:05.740
You know Trump getting kicked off. So I would imagine numbers has probably gone down but

00:11:05.740 –> 00:11:09.860
You know for him as somebody who’s gonna purchase it

00:11:09.860 –> 00:11:14.300
He needs to know what he’s mind and what he’s actually getting and if the price is too high

00:11:14.300 –> 00:11:16.300
He’s gonna you know, they’re gonna have to make an adjustment

00:11:16.300 –> 00:11:21.580
if the you know, you know that that figure he he is putting out there is based on

00:11:21.580 –> 00:11:25.580
You know so many people

00:11:25.740 –> 00:11:32.100
They’re having so many accounts so we don’t wait they can see what I don’t think it’s gonna materialize Twitter’s always been up for sale

00:11:32.100 –> 00:11:34.660
They’ve been trying to get somebody to buy that for a long time believe it or not

00:11:34.660 –> 00:11:40.260
There was talks of somebody buying it a bunch of years ago didn’t pan out. There was talks of

00:11:40.260 –> 00:11:43.820
There’s been so many talks about people buying it over the years

00:11:43.820 –> 00:11:48.180
That just couldn’t come up with all the money and that’s the same situation

00:11:48.180 –> 00:11:50.420
They’re in right now where you know person wants to buy it

00:11:50.420 –> 00:11:54.120
but they can’t come up with all the money if he can’t come up with the money who can but

00:11:55.260 –> 00:11:59.860
Well, like I said there’s been talks for the Twitter’s always been up for sale Twitter’s never actually

00:11:59.860 –> 00:12:02.180
That’s a business that really hasn’t made any money to be honest with you

00:12:02.180 –> 00:12:09.260
I mean think of how gigantic Twitter is and and they just they’re calm. They’re not like Facebook. They really have never made

00:12:09.260 –> 00:12:11.420
Really any money

00:12:11.420 –> 00:12:14.740
They’re always you know, they had a day to layoffs a couple years ago

00:12:14.740 –> 00:12:19.620
because of just situations with you know finances

00:12:19.620 –> 00:12:24.620
they’ve had a scale back projects because they ran out of financing they’ve had to

00:12:25.340 –> 00:12:27.340
Take on some investors to keep going

00:12:27.340 –> 00:12:32.240
The company’s been breaking, you know under Jack Dorsey started breaking even and I was doing okay

00:12:32.240 –> 00:12:37.740
but it it’s just one of those kinds of things man where it’s just it’s tough business to buy because never

00:12:37.740 –> 00:12:41.520
It’s I see the value in the product and I see the value in the service

00:12:41.520 –> 00:12:46.640
But it’s very hard to see value when you’re not making money as far especially when it’s investment

00:12:46.640 –> 00:12:51.820
So we’ll have to see what happens with that. I was actually talked years ago about the government buying it

00:12:52.660 –> 00:12:56.740
This is going back maybe ten years ago. The government was gonna buy it and was going to

00:12:56.740 –> 00:12:59.500
You’re gonna use it to get communication out

00:12:59.500 –> 00:13:04.340
So that there’s been there’s been so many thoughts of Microsoft was gonna buy it. They looked into it. They said not to

00:13:04.340 –> 00:13:07.100
then they bought LinkedIn but

00:13:07.100 –> 00:13:13.900
There was talks for a long time that another company was gonna Google was possibly buy it because Google has so many

00:13:13.900 –> 00:13:16.700
failures in the social media platform area

00:13:16.700 –> 00:13:22.140
It’s it’s just one of those kinds of things where it’s a company that nobody everybody likes it

00:13:22.140 –> 00:13:25.380
But nobody wants it doesn’t make any money and that is a tough business. So

00:13:25.380 –> 00:13:28.620
We’ll have to remain to be seen

00:13:28.620 –> 00:13:31.580
What happens there?

00:13:31.580 –> 00:13:34.500
But I will say they’re all alternatives out there for those guys that want to

00:13:34.500 –> 00:13:37.500
Obviously you have Telegram

00:13:37.500 –> 00:13:40.780
There’s rocket chat. There’s parler

00:13:40.780 –> 00:13:45.020
There is whatsapp groups. There’s a lot of different things you can do

00:13:45.020 –> 00:13:51.780
If you don’t want to be on any, you know Facebook or Twitter, there are other options. There’s me we there’s a lot of different ones

00:13:51.780 –> 00:13:53.100

00:13:53.100 –> 00:13:55.020
The big ones obviously it’s tough

00:13:55.020 –> 00:13:58.380
It’s tough when you want to get communication out because you want to be even though you know

00:13:58.380 –> 00:14:03.860
If you’re on the fringe like that on those, you know, telegram and things like that are so much smaller

00:14:03.860 –> 00:14:10.660
Than Twitter or even you know, or way tinier than Twitter and way tinier than

00:14:10.660 –> 00:14:13.700
Obviously fate, you know Facebook. So

00:14:13.700 –> 00:14:17.600
That’s you know that that’s a you know, if you’re gonna be on that, you know, it’s gonna be hard to communication

00:14:17.600 –> 00:14:20.380
That’s why I think you know, he wants to do this. So it’s it’s a mainstream

00:14:21.420 –> 00:14:26.660
Platform that that’s open. So but I said there are other options out there. So

00:14:26.660 –> 00:14:31.440
If you have any questions, like I said hit me up on Twitter or Facebook and I can talk to you about it

00:14:31.440 –> 00:14:36.640
Like I said folks so some of the things I do want to help with is I do want to talk about besides just the news

00:14:36.640 –> 00:14:42.420
Which obviously there was some news now they’re saying that we’re sending some of our strategic

00:14:42.420 –> 00:14:46.520
Oil reserves over to help China out, which I don’t understand why we’d be doing that

00:14:47.860 –> 00:14:52.260
Especially if China’s good buddies with Russia Russia give him all the oil he needs. I don’t understand why we have to give it to him

00:14:52.260 –> 00:14:56.220
I know, you know, the president currently has a good relationship with China, but

00:14:56.220 –> 00:15:00.980
You know Russia can give new oil they’ve got enough of it right now and they’re cutting everybody off

00:15:00.980 –> 00:15:02.900
So they’ve got probably have a surplus of it

00:15:02.900 –> 00:15:05.340
But so some things I want to talk about you folks

00:15:05.340 –> 00:15:08.640
Like I said other things I do want to speak of as far as survival goes

00:15:08.640 –> 00:15:13.500
Up in Pennsylvania. Do you have to take a course?

00:15:14.620 –> 00:15:19.340
In trapping if you want to trap now, I have not taken the the well

00:15:19.340 –> 00:15:22.300
I have taken the trapping course which is foothold traps

00:15:22.300 –> 00:15:28.060
But apparently if you want to use cable traps, there’s a different certification you have to take so I took that class

00:15:28.060 –> 00:15:32.700
During the week, I believe what day was that Center for July took the class. They have one

00:15:32.700 –> 00:15:35.020
It’s a six hour class you have to take and it talks all about

00:15:35.020 –> 00:15:41.380
Cable trapping and stuff like that and the reason why I’m bringing that up is I

00:15:41.700 –> 00:15:45.780
Had talked to a couple people who had messaged me from listen to the show last week about

00:15:45.780 –> 00:15:48.780
cable trapping and about using snares and

00:15:48.780 –> 00:15:54.340
I will I do want to say one thing you have to be very careful a snare and a cable trap are two different things

00:15:54.340 –> 00:15:58.060
I learned that why I always knew that but I learned that

00:15:58.060 –> 00:16:04.900
the other day in the the cape the the course that I took and one of the things you have to be very careful about is

00:16:04.900 –> 00:16:08.580
Especially in PA you can only use a snare

00:16:08.580 –> 00:16:10.300

00:16:10.300 –> 00:16:14.340
Water you cannot use it on dry land. So it’s very very important

00:16:14.340 –> 00:16:19.820
I just wanted to point that out a snare is is not like a regular cable trap a

00:16:19.820 –> 00:16:26.160
Snare actually does grab the animal and kill it where a cable trap grabs them and restrains them

00:16:26.160 –> 00:16:31.320
And you cannot use a snare on dry land. It must be used in water only

00:16:31.320 –> 00:16:36.560
For safety purposes. So the other thing is too with the cable trap

00:16:36.560 –> 00:16:42.160
If a large animal like a dog or a deer or a bear get trapped in it, they can break out of it and break away

00:16:42.160 –> 00:16:43.400
from it

00:16:43.400 –> 00:16:46.960
Now those traps do capture and do hold the animal there

00:16:46.960 –> 00:16:53.560
But it is the locking mechanism is designed that if there’s a certain amount of pressure from a certain type of animal

00:16:53.560 –> 00:16:56.280
It’ll break it free

00:16:56.280 –> 00:16:59.720
Smaller animals it’ll relaxes and kill them, but it will hold them there

00:16:59.720 –> 00:17:04.560
but that’s so there is a difference by the way between snares and cable trapping and also to

00:17:05.640 –> 00:17:09.860
You have to look at you have to make sure you look in your state because certain states

00:17:09.860 –> 00:17:15.960
Do allow snaring and certain states do not I know like I said you can only use snares in water

00:17:15.960 –> 00:17:20.860
Some states do allow snaring on dry land, but you have to know your laws and your states

00:17:20.860 –> 00:17:25.160
Contact your local Game Commission. Obviously if you’re if you don’t know and you’re trying to figure it out

00:17:25.160 –> 00:17:31.560
But so very importantly is it the cable the cable traps and the foothold traps are

00:17:32.000 –> 00:17:36.960
You have to look too because there’s only a certain season for the cable traps and it’s only a certain season for the footholds traps

00:17:36.960 –> 00:17:41.400
Traps, so you have to look at that too. I did not know that either

00:17:41.400 –> 00:17:45.980
I did I thought foothold traps you can use any time of the year, but you can’t there’s a certain season for that

00:17:45.980 –> 00:17:47.980
There’s a certain season with the cable traps

00:17:47.980 –> 00:17:54.360
The cable traps are mostly a winter thing because the foothold traps don’t really work too long the big, you know, the big snow

00:17:54.360 –> 00:17:56.680

00:17:56.680 –> 00:17:58.400
There is a season for that as well

00:17:58.400 –> 00:18:02.680
So and like I said in the state of PA you actually have to be certified in trend in

00:18:02.680 –> 00:18:07.440
In truth, well you you have to get trapped in class, but then if you want to use the cables you have to be certified

00:18:07.440 –> 00:18:12.520
For that so I did take the certification for the cable trap recently just the other day. So

00:18:12.520 –> 00:18:16.300
And like I said the cable traps you can you have to by the way

00:18:16.300 –> 00:18:20.780
You have to watch too because I didn’t know this. So if you order cable traps online

00:18:20.780 –> 00:18:23.620
Not all cable traps

00:18:23.620 –> 00:18:26.360
Can be used in each state

00:18:27.360 –> 00:18:29.360
There is an approved

00:18:29.360 –> 00:18:36.460
Lock that must be used in certain states in Pennsylvania, I know this because I just did the class but

00:18:36.460 –> 00:18:41.560
Certain locks cannot be used in your state

00:18:41.560 –> 00:18:46.520
So you have to if you’re really thinking about doing any of this cable trapping or snaring?

00:18:46.520 –> 00:18:52.440
You’re really gonna have to really do the reading and check because some of these

00:18:52.440 –> 00:18:55.840
particular things are

00:18:56.280 –> 00:19:00.580
You have to know the specifics of it I didn’t know I thought you could just order cable traps online

00:19:00.580 –> 00:19:07.600
But you can’t because they have the locking mechanism must be approved by your state

00:19:07.600 –> 00:19:09.880

00:19:09.880 –> 00:19:11.440
and also to

00:19:11.440 –> 00:19:17.280
cable trapping in you have to watch because you can get a fine if the if the animal is

00:19:17.280 –> 00:19:22.280
Entangled and strangled. I know you’re thinking well, you’re yeah, I know you’re what you’re thinking the same thing

00:19:22.280 –> 00:19:24.280
I thought well from trapping I’m gonna want but you

00:19:24.520 –> 00:19:31.480
Entangle it you have to have a best effort not to allow entanglement which is how they consider killing is when you’re entangling them

00:19:31.480 –> 00:19:37.760
So there’s you have to really make sure you you watch and know you’re what you’re doing

00:19:37.760 –> 00:19:40.480
Because like I said not everything

00:19:40.480 –> 00:19:45.520
With these cable traps and the way you trap and all that is created

00:19:45.520 –> 00:19:52.920
Equal and the foothold traps you have to watch too because only certain foothold traps are allowed to be used

00:19:53.480 –> 00:19:58.840
In certain states Pennsylvania, we’re pretty loose with that stuff. But you’d look is your state might be different

00:19:58.840 –> 00:20:01.960
This a lot of this stuff is state by state. So

00:20:01.960 –> 00:20:07.060
You have to look now in certain states. I know you can use snares on dry land

00:20:07.060 –> 00:20:09.800
We don’t allow that in Pennsylvania, but there are some states that allow it

00:20:09.800 –> 00:20:12.560
Also – you have to know

00:20:12.560 –> 00:20:18.040
When in your state if you’re gonna be doing a hintertrapping you have to know

00:20:18.840 –> 00:20:24.920
What your checkpoints are in the sense of in Pennsylvania, you must check your traps every 36 hours

00:20:24.920 –> 00:20:27.200
And they do check just so you know that they do check

00:20:27.200 –> 00:20:30.560
So you have to check your traps every 36 hours

00:20:30.560 –> 00:20:33.120

00:20:33.120 –> 00:20:37.880
best time is always to check your traps always in the morning because you don’t really want the animal sitting down the Sun all day because

00:20:37.880 –> 00:20:41.020
If it died, you know, I could use it

00:20:41.020 –> 00:20:47.840
Meat but yet to be careful because in PA you have to check your traps over 36 hours and the game people do check that

00:20:47.840 –> 00:20:52.760
Stuff on the state land. So you have to make sure you check your traps every 36 hours in Pennsylvania

00:20:52.760 –> 00:20:56.300
Some states are 48 hours. Some states are maybe less. I don’t know

00:20:56.300 –> 00:21:02.720
But I do know that specifically but I do know especially on the cable traps. You have to use

00:21:02.720 –> 00:21:07.000
Only a certain kind of lock and if it’s the wrong kind of lock you can get a fine

00:21:07.000 –> 00:21:12.840
So you’re gonna have to know your state you’re gonna have to know some states. You don’t need a license for cabling some you do

00:21:12.840 –> 00:21:16.360
Some states you can make the cable traps right out of stuff. You buy at the hardware store

00:21:17.000 –> 00:21:19.000
Some states you can’t

00:21:19.000 –> 00:21:23.740
Some of them have to have stops on them some of them, you know, some of them have to have

00:21:23.740 –> 00:21:28.360
The hole the loophole depending on what you’re capturing has to be a certain size

00:21:28.360 –> 00:21:32.900
If you’re carrying Fox or coyote or anything like that, the hole has to be a certain size

00:21:32.900 –> 00:21:40.380
Where if you’re capturing something else you have to use a smaller loop. The loop has to be so high off the ground

00:21:40.380 –> 00:21:44.240
There’s actually quite a bit to know with the cold cable trapping thing

00:21:44.400 –> 00:21:47.160
If you are interested in cable trapping, I seriously recommend

00:21:47.160 –> 00:21:50.140
reaching out to your local

00:21:50.140 –> 00:21:52.160

00:21:52.160 –> 00:21:56.720
State Game Commission only because they’ll be able to kind of tell you

00:21:56.720 –> 00:22:00.200
You know what you need

00:22:00.200 –> 00:22:04.640
to do and they’ll be able to give you a book with information to make sure you’re following all the right laws because the last

00:22:04.640 –> 00:22:08.040
Thing you want to do is get a fine for something stupid like not having a hole big enough

00:22:08.840 –> 00:22:14.700
You’re not being high enough off the ground also to the keg in the cable restraint holds the animal

00:22:14.700 –> 00:22:21.720
So in some situations the cable also has to be anchored to the ground and that’s something that a lot of people don’t know

00:22:21.720 –> 00:22:27.560
The cable has to if they if the if the anchor has to be in the ground and that’s being so far too

00:22:27.560 –> 00:22:32.000
And state commit game commissioners will actually come in like shake them and move them around

00:22:32.000 –> 00:22:34.400
also to

00:22:34.400 –> 00:22:36.000

00:22:36.000 –> 00:22:39.880
Your well, they have equipment we have in Pennsylvania what they call equipment ID

00:22:39.880 –> 00:22:45.660
In some states of trapper ID or hunting ID, it depends on your state again

00:22:45.660 –> 00:22:52.720
but I know in Pennsylvania you must have your equipment ID on the

00:22:52.720 –> 00:22:58.100
Equipment on your traps and if you don’t have it, they might actually even take it down

00:22:58.100 –> 00:23:03.480
So very important there to make sure that you you have all your equipment tagged with all your information

00:23:04.160 –> 00:23:07.600
Especially around a state land because I know they specifically check that

00:23:07.600 –> 00:23:16.480
You do it in general, but especially on a state land you’re gonna have to also to if you’re if you what I find

00:23:16.480 –> 00:23:18.880
Is the best places to go trapping is?

00:23:18.880 –> 00:23:24.520
On farmland because farmers usually don’t there, you know, I’ve gone up to farmers and said hey

00:23:24.520 –> 00:23:28.000
I want to do trap. I wanted to trap on your again. I just took the cable course

00:23:28.000 –> 00:23:29.920
I always did foothold trapping but

00:23:29.920 –> 00:23:33.360
The cable trapping is something new that I’m getting into so I just take it to class

00:23:33.360 –> 00:23:37.240
But I’ve actually gonna play I’ve had farmers that say to me I said hey, you know want to travel

00:23:37.240 –> 00:23:42.500
Oh, we got tons of you know rabbits or things like that that are that are destroying my crops

00:23:42.500 –> 00:23:45.160
I love if you trapped on my land. So

00:23:45.160 –> 00:23:53.280
If you are looking to do any kind of foothold trapping or cable trapping, I seriously recommend know your laws, but also to

00:23:53.280 –> 00:23:58.220
I’d recommend talking to the local farmers if you have any air because a lot of those guys

00:23:58.220 –> 00:24:01.400
Want you to trap on their property because they don’t want

00:24:02.320 –> 00:24:05.920
They never they don’t want rabbits. They don’t want that kind of stuff. It’s gonna destroy their

00:24:05.920 –> 00:24:09.320
The other crops their land because rabbits coyotes

00:24:09.320 –> 00:24:11.400

00:24:11.400 –> 00:24:13.400
stuff also if you can trap

00:24:13.400 –> 00:24:15.240
Definitely can cause damage on a farm

00:24:15.240 –> 00:24:21.120
So a lot of those guys have found the best places to go or for is to talk to farmers because they a lot of times

00:24:21.120 –> 00:24:24.500
Will say yeah sure go ahead because they don’t want those especially if it’s a chicken farmer

00:24:24.500 –> 00:24:31.860
I guarantee you he’s gonna want you to capture foxes because foxes are like the biggest predator on a chicken farm

00:24:32.100 –> 00:24:35.600
So I can guarantee you he’s gonna want you to go ahead and trap that so

00:24:35.600 –> 00:24:38.580
like I said

00:24:38.580 –> 00:24:44.320
Make sure like I said, I would say definitely talk to the the farmer and see if he’s okay with it

00:24:44.320 –> 00:24:50.620
Also – if you’re if you’re gonna be trapping you have to talk to him about where he wants the traps is very important

00:24:50.620 –> 00:24:53.700
If they’re free if they’re if they’re chickens that are kind of in a coop

00:24:53.700 –> 00:24:59.420
he might let you trap around the you know, the outside of the coops – you know, but you have to watch because

00:25:00.520 –> 00:25:05.700
Certain states you cannot trap within X amount of feet of livestock because of

00:25:05.700 –> 00:25:11.500
rules and stuff like that so you have to watch but if you are gonna capture foxes and

00:25:11.500 –> 00:25:13.180
You’re on a chicken farm

00:25:13.180 –> 00:25:19.020
Probably the best place gonna be around the coop somewhere or around behind the bushes behind the coops or places like that

00:25:19.020 –> 00:25:22.620
You’ll know when you scout for you know, what you’re looking for

00:25:22.620 –> 00:25:26.780
You’ll see the skeet you’ll see all that kind of stuff and you’ll know the foxes are there

00:25:26.780 –> 00:25:31.120
You definitely know you can tell a foxhole a mile away. So you’ll see the foxhole. You’ll see the

00:25:31.120 –> 00:25:33.800
You know all that kind of stuff

00:25:33.800 –> 00:25:38.080
Surprisingly enough one of the places they said in the I when I took the cables

00:25:38.080 –> 00:25:43.880
certification the other day one of the places they said the best place to hang a cable trap believe it or not is right by

00:25:43.880 –> 00:25:46.480
Those storm drains that go underneath

00:25:46.480 –> 00:25:50.080
Storm drains that go on, you know, like I said underneath

00:25:50.080 –> 00:25:54.720
You know underneath the grounds of it

00:25:54.720 –> 00:25:59.720
There’s a lot of animals hide out in there and they actually recommend that you try to trap there because a lot of those animals

00:25:59.720 –> 00:26:01.720
Can actually get hurt or killed when it rains

00:26:01.720 –> 00:26:05.540
So they actually really actually recommend if you are going to do some trapping

00:26:05.540 –> 00:26:10.580
To possibly if you’re allowed to in your state to trap right there or if it’s a good spot to trap right there

00:26:10.580 –> 00:26:14.660
So that’s something I didn’t know either that that’s a good spot

00:26:14.660 –> 00:26:17.100
I know animals hung out in there, but I know you could trap there

00:26:17.100 –> 00:26:21.620
Also to one of the big things that you have to be careful of too, by the way is if you capture

00:26:22.380 –> 00:26:25.320
Something that’s not supposed to be captured. You gotta make sure you let it go

00:26:25.320 –> 00:26:28.280
You know things like that

00:26:28.280 –> 00:26:34.100
Like I said, there’s a lot that goes into it if you are looking into cable trapping which is gonna be my new thing this year

00:26:34.100 –> 00:26:39.120
You know, you’re gonna have to take your test and make sure you uh, you know

00:26:39.120 –> 00:26:42.000
Make sure you know your loss the snare thing is very important

00:26:42.000 –> 00:26:47.100
Because cable trapping and snaring are not the same thing very very important the cable trap

00:26:47.100 –> 00:26:50.980
Like I said does capture the animal alive the snare does not

00:26:51.920 –> 00:26:59.860
In PA you can only use snare traps in water and it’s only for beaver and river water. That’s it

00:26:59.860 –> 00:27:04.540
So very very important to know that especially if you’re gonna be doing any kind of trapping

00:27:04.540 –> 00:27:07.120
You have to know your state you have to know your laws

00:27:07.120 –> 00:27:12.540
You have to know what you can and can capture know your seasons and you have to know how to set the traps up

00:27:12.540 –> 00:27:19.100
Ladies that you can’t and by the way, you can capture an animal with a snare alive, but it’s very rare

00:27:19.100 –> 00:27:24.720
especially if you you know, especially something like a beef I mean you can but it’s it can be very

00:27:24.720 –> 00:27:28.880
difficult to capture a lot animal alive in a snare and

00:27:28.880 –> 00:27:32.060
Generally, the reason why they’re allowed to do underwater is because you’re gonna want

00:27:32.060 –> 00:27:33.800
You want it?

00:27:33.800 –> 00:27:35.340
I mean unfortunately capturing it

00:27:35.340 –> 00:27:39.380
It capturing using a snare and water you want entanglement because you want the animal to get killed

00:27:39.380 –> 00:27:44.360
So they mean and most of the time if you capture them underwater, they’re gonna want to come up for water

00:27:44.360 –> 00:27:49.060
So but that’s another thing too, by the way, if you are gonna use a snare in water

00:27:49.060 –> 00:27:55.400
You have to make sure that the trap is a certain amount submerged

00:27:55.400 –> 00:27:58.400
I know it seems like a nuts thing that what you talk about in PA

00:27:58.400 –> 00:28:01.280
You have if you’re going to use a snare cable trap

00:28:01.280 –> 00:28:06.760
You must make sure that you can that the loop is so much in the water

00:28:06.760 –> 00:28:09.040
I think has to be a third or two-thirds in the water

00:28:09.040 –> 00:28:13.380
I think you could actually completely submerge it if you want I have to check the book on that

00:28:13.560 –> 00:28:20.480
But I believe you have to a certain percentage of it must be in the water because if not, it’s considered a dry land trap

00:28:20.480 –> 00:28:24.360
So there’s a lot that goes into this this cable trapping

00:28:24.360 –> 00:28:28.700
like I said, if you if you don’t if you don’t want to know more about

00:28:28.700 –> 00:28:34.760
Snaring and cable trapping like I said talk to your local Game Commission YouTube has tons of stuff on it

00:28:34.760 –> 00:28:37.080
But I’m going to guess if you’re gonna want to use a snare

00:28:37.080 –> 00:28:39.900
most states are gonna require you to take a

00:28:39.900 –> 00:28:43.100
trapping course or a cable certification course

00:28:43.100 –> 00:28:46.480
I like I said, I just took the Pennsylvania one this week

00:28:46.480 –> 00:28:51.340
The course it was on Tuesday. I took it off from work to do it to do it and

00:28:51.340 –> 00:28:55.560
It actually is pretty it actually was pretty easy

00:28:55.560 –> 00:29:01.100
You know, I mean it’s made for kids 11 and older so I mean if you’re an adult

00:29:01.100 –> 00:29:03.100
I mean a lot of it’s mostly just common sense

00:29:03.100 –> 00:29:05.820
But like I said go through it

00:29:05.820 –> 00:29:08.800
And it wasn’t that difficult. Is this stuff you need to know?

00:29:09.500 –> 00:29:14.920
Some of the stuff, you know, if you’re if you’re already a woodsman or an outdoorsman they go something they go over

00:29:14.920 –> 00:29:17.000
It’s like, you know, this is what a coyote looks like

00:29:17.000 –> 00:29:21.760
This is what a fox looks like a stuff like that, which is a little bit insulting to your intelligence

00:29:21.760 –> 00:29:23.760
but they do have to go over it and

00:29:23.760 –> 00:29:28.720
But some of the stuff you’re gonna want to make sure you have your syllabus with you if it’s your first time doing it or

00:29:28.720 –> 00:29:33.840
At least take notes down on some of the stuff after because there is stuff when you do go out

00:29:33.840 –> 00:29:35.840
You’re gonna have to know like how big the hole has to be

00:29:35.840 –> 00:29:39.180
How that and you’re gonna want to bring a tape measure with you gonna want to know how high it has to be

00:29:39.320 –> 00:29:45.100
There’s a lot that goes into the cable trapping and you do have to have your certification to do it. So in Pennsylvania

00:29:45.100 –> 00:29:47.820
Foothole traps not as complicated

00:29:47.820 –> 00:29:49.880
They still the same regulations

00:29:49.880 –> 00:29:53.180
We have to give to check on within like within like 36 hours and stuff for that

00:29:53.180 –> 00:29:55.760
It used to be 48 and PA they dropped it to 36

00:29:55.760 –> 00:29:58.740
Those kind of things are all gonna be the same

00:29:58.740 –> 00:30:03.760
Yeah, you’re obviously all your treatment your fiddle traps have to be marked with your information on them no matter where they are

00:30:03.760 –> 00:30:08.700
You know all that kind of stuff that stuff’s pretty standard but the stuff with the cable trapping

00:30:08.960 –> 00:30:12.400
The height from the ground decides to loop all that kind of stuff

00:30:12.400 –> 00:30:16.700
You’re gonna want to know they do have a cheat sheet that you can print out online and laminate and keep with you in, Pennsylvania

00:30:16.700 –> 00:30:20.740
If you if you want to do that, I would recommend it. I probably will

00:30:20.740 –> 00:30:24.360
Also – one of the things I did realize and I didn’t know this is

00:30:24.360 –> 00:30:27.360
Since the cable trapping is separate from your hunting license

00:30:27.360 –> 00:30:32.560
You have to have the cable trap certification card with you with your hunting license

00:30:32.560 –> 00:30:36.800
Just in case you get stopped you have to have that or otherwise you can get a fine for that

00:30:36.800 –> 00:30:40.960
so I didn’t know that either but apparently you have to have that along with your

00:30:40.960 –> 00:30:47.620
Hunting license also – one of the things they do talk about with a cable trapping obviously is

00:30:47.620 –> 00:30:50.620
Brought is the way at the net

00:30:50.620 –> 00:30:57.680
I guess if in in Pennsylvania you have to make sure that you give a best effort not to strangle an animal

00:30:57.680 –> 00:31:01.840
Especially on dry land because what they’re worried about especially on dry land

00:31:01.840 –> 00:31:03.480
Is that you’re gonna capture them?

00:31:03.480 –> 00:31:08.740
You’re not supposed to catch a dog a pet something like that cat whatever or something

00:31:08.740 –> 00:31:12.680
You’re not supposed to catch in general just not season. They want you to be able to release it and

00:31:12.680 –> 00:31:16.360
You I mean you have to give a best case ever. I mean I can’t imagine

00:31:16.360 –> 00:31:19.160
I’d hate to come home to a home come home, but

00:31:19.160 –> 00:31:24.240
Little a trap that has somebody’s pet in it boy. That would be a rough conversation to have with the pet owner

00:31:24.240 –> 00:31:29.600
But so you do want to be careful where you set your traps up

00:31:30.160 –> 00:31:35.460
Definitely somebody I’ve done foothold traps for one of the past and knock on wood. I’m not gonna my desk which is wood here

00:31:35.460 –> 00:31:40.960
I’ve never caught somebody’s pet yet. I’m gonna knock on wood again. Hopefully I don’t do that this season

00:31:40.960 –> 00:31:46.120
But the foot hole traps though aren’t won’t kill. I mean you can’t you can’t I mean I

00:31:46.120 –> 00:31:54.080
Mean, I guess you could have somebody they caught couldn’t they get tangled only but I’ve never seen any I’ve never had a situation where animal gets

00:31:54.080 –> 00:31:56.720
Gets killed from a hole trap

00:31:57.000 –> 00:32:02.620
Those of you that are wondering what that noise was that was my opie the Wonder Dog knocking over something on the on the desk

00:32:02.620 –> 00:32:08.440
Hey, yes, that was opie the Wonder Dog. My bird dog sometimes gets a little overzealous and

00:32:08.440 –> 00:32:15.400
When he sees me and things like that can happen, but like I said the like I said, you have to be really really careful

00:32:15.400 –> 00:32:19.080
About what you’re trapping

00:32:19.080 –> 00:32:25.040
And like I said making sure you don’t catch somebody’s pet that’s you know, the cable trapping is a lot more dangerous

00:32:25.040 –> 00:32:28.500
I’m not gonna lie because that is the situation where you can get something around the neck now

00:32:28.500 –> 00:32:31.760
If your cable traps are set right and you use the right kind of lock

00:32:31.760 –> 00:32:33.860
Even if you get something around the neck, you’re not gonna kill it

00:32:33.860 –> 00:32:36.960
Okay, so that’s kind of important

00:32:36.960 –> 00:32:43.700
But the foot hole traps I’ve never seen that I you can I will say this though in the cable trap grabs them

00:32:43.700 –> 00:32:48.240
Depending on the photo trap you’re using you can you know break a leg or something like that if you’re not careful

00:32:48.240 –> 00:32:53.920
But or call some, you know bleeding or cutting or whatever like that, but you know, but it’s not I don’t think it’s gonna kill them

00:32:54.360 –> 00:32:56.120
But again very very important

00:32:56.120 –> 00:33:02.760
like I said to take your traps very often and any of the any of the especially if you’re gonna be cables wrapping and I mean

00:33:02.760 –> 00:33:04.760
football trapping too, but

00:33:04.760 –> 00:33:11.700
Don’t I’ve seen people that set these things up on like public trails and it’s like the middle of oct it’s kind of like season

00:33:11.700 –> 00:33:15.520
But it’s not it’s like okay guys. It’s September. Why do you have a foothold trap on?

00:33:15.520 –> 00:33:17.120

00:33:17.120 –> 00:33:22.880
The freaking main like trail going to town like I mean I get it

00:33:22.880 –> 00:33:24.800
There’s no law says you can’t

00:33:24.800 –> 00:33:26.200

00:33:26.200 –> 00:33:28.200
It’s kind of stupid. I mean

00:33:28.200 –> 00:33:33.960
People’s dogs people. I mean, I mean you’ve got about pets imagine somebody puts their foot in a football chapter

00:33:33.960 –> 00:33:36.800
It won’t hurt it may hurt but they may not gonna kill them

00:33:36.800 –> 00:33:42.020
But yeah, that’s definitely gonna be a an uncomfortable conversation. They call the game Commission given your number that’s on the

00:33:42.020 –> 00:33:44.440

00:33:44.440 –> 00:33:49.160
On the device and says hey, I caught this caught on my foot because somebody left this sitting out

00:33:49.160 –> 00:33:52.480
You know on a public trail in the middle of the you know, so

00:33:52.720 –> 00:33:54.400
You know

00:33:54.400 –> 00:33:59.840
It’s it’s more of a think, you know a trap responsibly trap safely

00:33:59.840 –> 00:34:03.520
trap intelligently, I guess I would say

00:34:03.520 –> 00:34:08.640
I’ve never had that happen. But I have had people that have

00:34:08.640 –> 00:34:14.640
Caught people’s pets in their traps. I’ve never done it knock on wood. I’m gonna knock on wood again here

00:34:14.640 –> 00:34:19.560
But I have heard of it happening. So you just got to be smart. Be careful be safe and

00:34:20.880 –> 00:34:22.880
Don’t do something stupid

00:34:22.880 –> 00:34:29.200
One of the things that is very important though when you are trapping though using the foothold traps is if you are going to have

00:34:29.200 –> 00:34:34.800
Them what I like to do personally and because the animals aren’t really they’re not gonna notice it

00:34:34.800 –> 00:34:37.800
But what I usually do is I put the foot hole trap there and then I put one of those

00:34:37.800 –> 00:34:42.680
Orange is very thin orange markers and I’ll tap it down in there

00:34:44.960 –> 00:34:51.200
Just so I know where the trap is and just to alert other hunters that there’s a trap or trappers

00:34:51.200 –> 00:34:54.900
That that’s there. You don’t have to do that. That’s something that I do

00:34:54.900 –> 00:35:01.560
Just to keep people aware. So the one they don’t set the trap off and two so they don’t get caught in it

00:35:01.560 –> 00:35:06.040
It doesn’t like I said, it doesn’t happen. I’ve never I do that. You don’t have to do that

00:35:06.040 –> 00:35:07.800
They’re like couple dollars you get them at the hardware store

00:35:07.800 –> 00:35:11.560
I get a couple of them and I put them out with the trap just so I once oh I know where the trap is

00:35:11.560 –> 00:35:14.400
I mean, I know where they are, but just so it gives me out

00:35:14.640 –> 00:35:18.480
This is a little bit easier to find them and then to this way people that are in the woods

00:35:18.480 –> 00:35:21.200
especially on the state land don’t set them off on me or

00:35:21.200 –> 00:35:23.040
You know

00:35:23.040 –> 00:35:25.040
Know that it’s there

00:35:25.040 –> 00:35:27.860
That’s something I do. You don’t have to do that. That’s something I do

00:35:27.860 –> 00:35:31.420
And it doesn’t disturb me and the animals don’t really care that much about it

00:35:31.420 –> 00:35:35.580
One thing I will say though is if is if you are gonna be doing cable traps

00:35:35.580 –> 00:35:43.160
one of the things I strongly recommend is is boiling the trap and then trying to make and then they either roughing it up or

00:35:43.360 –> 00:35:45.280
Making it look like

00:35:45.280 –> 00:35:49.240
It’s where it’s supposed to be because if you get a bright silver shiny trap

00:35:49.240 –> 00:35:54.300
Animals are not like fish. It’s not really attracted to that stuff and they may not go through it

00:35:54.300 –> 00:35:57.920
I had a friend of mine who was very very

00:35:57.920 –> 00:36:00.660
Into this kind of stuff and he always told me that too

00:36:00.660 –> 00:36:04.080
You got to make sure you boil the trap or spray the trap or do something

00:36:04.080 –> 00:36:07.640
So the trap doesn’t like blends in with the area now

00:36:07.640 –> 00:36:12.260
I know you’re gonna say well that make it easier for people to meet me hard people see it and but but

00:36:12.880 –> 00:36:17.520
If you want to capture something that’s the way to do it and and you know, that’s that’s why I always

00:36:17.520 –> 00:36:23.800
You know and also too very very important wear rubber boots and rubber gloves because if you wear rubber boots and you wear rubber gloves

00:36:23.800 –> 00:36:26.080
You’re not as likely to leave scent

00:36:26.080 –> 00:36:30.680
If you’re just gonna give regular with your hands set up a trap, they’re gonna smell that scent

00:36:30.680 –> 00:36:36.080
So just make sure you use rubber gloves and always wear rubber boots when you’re trapping so you don’t leave any scent behind

00:36:36.080 –> 00:36:39.560
I mean, yes, you’re gonna kick up scent but with rubber boots, it keeps it down to a minimum

00:36:39.560 –> 00:36:42.360
always and also to

00:36:43.080 –> 00:36:48.560
What I what I like to do is what I usually do I’ll clean the traps boil the traps spraying with deodorizer

00:36:48.560 –> 00:36:52.500
They sell it at all the stores and then I’ll leave them sitting outside for a day or two

00:36:52.500 –> 00:36:55.020
So they kind of get that

00:36:55.020 –> 00:36:59.040
You know the the nature smell on before you put them out. I like to do that

00:36:59.040 –> 00:37:02.700
A lot of people I know do that as well. They say it’s a really good way to

00:37:02.700 –> 00:37:07.340
Really make the trap so it’s you know more like me

00:37:07.340 –> 00:37:10.640
Remember you want you the best kind of trap is when they don’t know is there so

00:37:11.760 –> 00:37:13.800
You know you want to make these things so they’re

00:37:13.800 –> 00:37:20.360
You know as much what you know, you know, it’s one of those things you just want to make sure the animal doesn’t know

00:37:20.360 –> 00:37:21.760
It’s there

00:37:21.760 –> 00:37:23.760
So that’s what I usually do

00:37:23.760 –> 00:37:24.800
like I said

00:37:24.800 –> 00:37:27.240
if you like I said that the main thing is to make sure I always

00:37:27.240 –> 00:37:31.680
If you don’t ever get a trap from like a store field stream and then you just put it right out there

00:37:31.680 –> 00:37:34.040
No, it’s got to be clean. It’s got to be sprayed down. It’s gonna be all that stuff

00:37:34.040 –> 00:37:38.120
Also to folks I want to point out too and I did not know this

00:37:39.640 –> 00:37:44.760
There is actually and I knew this but I didn’t know there was a lot there is um in Pennsylvania

00:37:44.760 –> 00:37:47.760
There is I mean, I I mean I think I knew you had to do it

00:37:47.760 –> 00:37:49.760
But I didn’t know that it was like on the books now

00:37:49.760 –> 00:37:55.020
They tell you what kind of caliper you have to have weapon you have to use with the animal

00:37:55.020 –> 00:37:59.820
And I did not know you can use air or gas powered

00:37:59.820 –> 00:38:06.480
Rifles to count to to kill a trapped animal like so a BB gun or something like that

00:38:06.820 –> 00:38:11.080
but I will say this if you’re going to 22 caliber is

00:38:11.080 –> 00:38:14.960
Probably your smallest caliber if you don’t want to remember you’re not you know

00:38:14.960 –> 00:38:20.820
Some of these animals pretty small so you’re not gonna bring like a 45 with you, but they actually say 22 caliber or air rifle

00:38:20.820 –> 00:38:28.060
I actually think the air rifle would do a lot less damage and a lot less noise and all that

00:38:28.060 –> 00:38:31.960
So I think that’s definitely the way to go now you can do whatever you want

00:38:33.000 –> 00:38:37.440
But 22 I think they say 22 or air rifle is preferred

00:38:37.440 –> 00:38:40.800
I mean you can use the 22 caliber, but

00:38:40.800 –> 00:38:44.580
You know, you could use the air rifle – it depends on the animal you’re trying to get

00:38:44.580 –> 00:38:49.120
If you know foxes coyote, I’d probably bring the piper your 22 caliber with you

00:38:49.120 –> 00:38:52.120
But if you’re just doing squirrels or stuff like that

00:38:52.120 –> 00:38:55.100
Or any kind of small game like that

00:38:55.100 –> 00:38:58.000
You probably just bring here rifle with you and one shot in the head

00:38:58.000 –> 00:39:00.600
Also to make sure you have a capture pole with you

00:39:00.600 –> 00:39:06.300
I saw a lot of people on that that just go out and they don’t have captureable if you’re capturing raccoons and some of that

00:39:06.300 –> 00:39:10.080
You’re gonna want to capture pole capture pole goes around the animals next you can hold it down

00:39:10.080 –> 00:39:13.520
The other reason why I had some people say why don’t you capture pole?

00:39:13.520 –> 00:39:15.000
I’m gonna kill it anyway, right?

00:39:15.000 –> 00:39:20.000
But if you capture an animal that you’re not supposed to capture you cannot kill it

00:39:20.000 –> 00:39:25.000
So you’re going to need a capture pole to hold the animal while you release it

00:39:25.000 –> 00:39:29.160
Okay, very very important. A lot of people don’t think about that

00:39:29.160 –> 00:39:33.320
I’ve actually seen a couple people make some mistakes. They’re out in the woods like that. They’re like, I’m like, where’s your capture?

00:39:33.320 –> 00:39:36.900
Well, I don’t need a capital because whatever I’m gonna kill it. Yep. No, you’re not

00:39:36.900 –> 00:39:42.080
If you’re if you’re out there capturing raccoons and you get a bobcat and it’s on its eats and you’re not gonna be killing it

00:39:42.080 –> 00:39:44.120
so you have to have a way to

00:39:44.120 –> 00:39:48.400
Hold the animal down while you release it for your safety and for the animal safety as well

00:39:48.400 –> 00:39:53.260
so very very important with that always make sure you bring your capture pole with you because

00:39:54.120 –> 00:40:00.920
You know, it can be a really really serious thing if you have an animal and and you can’t hold it down

00:40:00.920 –> 00:40:02.960
While you’re trying to release it

00:40:02.960 –> 00:40:07.380
Goth and also – I mean got the bed, you know, I mean you don’t I mean obviously, you know

00:40:07.380 –> 00:40:08.800
You know the rabies the animal has rabies

00:40:08.800 –> 00:40:12.680
But I mean you sometimes you don’t know and you don’t want to get bit or cut or anything like that

00:40:12.680 –> 00:40:17.320
So it’s it’s much safer always bring your capture pole with you if you’re going to be going out in the woods

00:40:17.320 –> 00:40:19.680
Very very important. I

00:40:20.680 –> 00:40:24.360
Everybody I always bring a capture pole because you never know what’s gonna be on that trap and

00:40:24.360 –> 00:40:27.460
The worst thing you want to do is not have it and have to leave the animal there

00:40:27.460 –> 00:40:30.800
And then now you’ve been now it looks like you haven’t checked your traps in 36 hours

00:40:30.800 –> 00:40:33.160
So it’s it’s very, you know

00:40:33.160 –> 00:40:39.380
It’s really really important to make sure you have all your ducks in a row and that capture pole is definitely a big part of it

00:40:39.380 –> 00:40:40.360
They’re not expensive

00:40:40.360 –> 00:40:43.300
So you do you put it around the animals neck then you go ahead and you pull the rope

00:40:43.300 –> 00:40:48.900
Just tighten up so you can hold it hold it down with your foot and then you can release the animal safely and then you release

00:40:48.900 –> 00:40:52.780
The animal obviously out of the capture pole. So very very important

00:40:52.780 –> 00:40:57.500
Always have a capture pole because a lot of people don’t and then they’re in a really bad situation

00:40:57.500 –> 00:41:02.980
When it’s time to release which you don’t what you do not want to have in drus me

00:41:02.980 –> 00:41:06.020
Like and then also to the other thing like I said

00:41:06.020 –> 00:41:14.360
Knowing your seasons and I’ve brought support but knowing your seasons knowing what you can’t what traps you can and cannot use

00:41:14.360 –> 00:41:18.200
All that stuff very very very important. So

00:41:18.900 –> 00:41:21.220
You know, just just know what you’re doing

00:41:21.220 –> 00:41:26.460
There’s tons of you if you if you if you take the hunter safety core the hunter safety course or the trapping course

00:41:26.460 –> 00:41:28.640
Whatever is required in your state and you’re still don’t know

00:41:28.640 –> 00:41:31.820
Go on YouTube watch YouTube videos

00:41:31.820 –> 00:41:36.920
Make sure you know what you’re doing because the last thing you want to do is make a mistake kill an animal

00:41:36.920 –> 00:41:40.260
That you’re not supposed to kill or worse. There’s worse gonna fine

00:41:40.260 –> 00:41:43.860
Any of that stuff so make sure

00:41:44.580 –> 00:41:47.980
Like I said know what you’re doing digested YouTube is your good friend

00:41:47.980 –> 00:41:54.780
All that kind of stuff very important. Like I said the game Commission if you have any questions go to the game Commission

00:41:54.780 –> 00:41:57.540
They are your friends. They want you to hunt they want you to hunt safely

00:41:57.540 –> 00:42:02.300
They want you to hunt the right way. So they would be I always recommend going to the going to the Commission

00:42:02.300 –> 00:42:07.880
You know if you if you have any questions have your syllabus have the right licenses

00:42:07.880 –> 00:42:14.000
You know, we all love the outdoors, but we all have to love it the same way we have to hunt respectively

00:42:14.360 –> 00:42:19.660
And safely so very very important. I know I went on a lot about trapping today folks

00:42:19.660 –> 00:42:24.840
But it’s something that I really guess I’m really getting into this season something. I really enjoy it. I’m really enjoying doing and

00:42:24.840 –> 00:42:30.440
Something I’m hoping to talk more about especially when the season comes up, but I did take the course this week

00:42:30.440 –> 00:42:32.280
So I wanted to go over all that

00:42:32.280 –> 00:42:37.780
But like I said folks trapping is going to be a big thing if you’re out, especially if you’re in a survival situation folks

00:42:37.780 –> 00:42:40.200
You cannot always rely on hunting

00:42:40.200 –> 00:42:43.320
Sometimes you’re going to have to rely on trapping as well

00:42:43.640 –> 00:42:48.520
Or sometimes you set your traps out and then go hunting so you in case you need anything hunting you have something when you come

00:42:48.520 –> 00:42:52.480
Back when you’re out in the woods, you have to use everything available

00:42:52.480 –> 00:42:55.520
You may be sitting a net up if you’re in a survival situation

00:42:55.520 –> 00:42:58.840
You may have a net out in the water to catch fish. You may have snare traps set up

00:42:58.840 –> 00:43:04.200
Around and you might be walking around with a bow. I mean because they’ll it’s a lot it’s a lot to do

00:43:04.200 –> 00:43:07.440
Yes, but if you need food, this was in the wild

00:43:07.440 –> 00:43:13.080
You can’t have too many options. So like I said folks very very important

00:43:13.440 –> 00:43:20.900
Like I said, I want to thank everybody for listening today, and I will see you on the next podcast. Thank you much
