Ride along by truck to experience my Tennessee trap line and get one on one lessons, tips and advice for your own trap line, or bring your own traps and experience the thrill of running a  trap line in the mountains of Tennessee.

Tennessee offers a great variety of furbearers, and I trap everything from raccoon to coyotes. Come and enjoy some time in this great state pursuing some of the most elusive and unique animals mother nature has to offer.

We require that you advise approximate date/time you expect to arrive, the number of trappers in your group, as well as the dates that you will be trapping. These dates will be reserved for you or your group. Please note that a signed liability waiver is required from all participants. The following are trapping season dates for certain animals.

Beaver, Coyote, and Groundhog                                                       Year Round

Bobcat, Fox, Opossum, Otter, Raccoon and Weasel.                  Nov 20-Feb  29

BOOKING FEE/RESERVATIONS: We require a 50% initial deposit to book a trap line. The deposit is required within (5) working days of booking your dates. The final 50% is due upon arrival. Money orders, cashiers checks or cash are accepted for deposits and final payment. We do not accept personal checks any longer.

Deposits are non-refundable. Refunds will not be made on early departures, cancellations, or “poor” weather cancellations. Cancellations or early departures can be rescheduled for another date or the next open season. Reservations for guide service are required in order that specific dates be set aside for your particular group. This helps our scheduling process and allows us to give you the individual quality service that you deserve.

We do not have any hidden charges nor a “replacement fee” for harvested animals.  There are no fences nor enclosed areas for the game animals. It is strictly free range, fair chase trapping and we cannot guarantee a harvest.

LICENSE: a trapping license is not provided. It is up to the trapper to obtain his/her own license and permits. We cannot purchase a trapping license for you as Tennessee requires personal identification.  You can purchase licenses online at https://www.tn.gov/twra/topic/hunting-licenses

We do not provide gear, lodging or food. A list of local lodging/accommodations can be mailed to you upon request.

Furbearer Trapping  $125/ Day per person
