I was listening to Trapper Radio this morning and Clint referenced the Ranger Creed. I fine tuned it to us as trappers. I hope you enjoy and get some inspiration from this.
Recognizing that I volunteered as a trapper, fully knowing the hazards of my chosen profession, I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor, and high esprit de corps of my trapper brotherhood.
Acknowledging the fact that a trapper is a more elite person, who arrives at the cutting edge of the wilderness experience by whatever means possible, I accept the fact that as a trapper, my country expects me to move further, faster, and trap harder than any other trapper.
Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong, and morally straight, and I will shoulder more than my share of the task, whatever it may be, one hundred percent and then some.
Gallantly will I show the world that I am a specially selected and well trained trapper. My courtesy to others, neatness of dress, and care of equipment shall set the example for my brothers to follow.
Energetically will I meet the chosen animal on his own ground. I shall defeat them in the field for I am better trained and will trap with all my might. Surrender is not a trapper word. I will never leave a brother or trap behind and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass the trapper brotherhood.
Readily will I display the intestinal fortitude required to fight on to the trappers objective and complete the trap line and season, though I be the lone survivor.
TRAPPERS LEAD THE WAY!
