About Us

Kris Pope, from Coyote Trapping School, provides instruction and educational content for people interested in getting started, or getting better, at trapping furbearers and predators. Many people consider trapping a dying art, but there is still plenty of interest whether from outdoorsmen and women who are looking to further their outdoor skills, wildlife managers looking to enhance game populations through predator control, or survivalists interesting in knowing how to obtain food and fur in a survival situation. Follow along as Kris gives trapping industry updates, instructional information, and updates on his wintertime trapline. With a wide array of experience, from trapping artic foxes in Alaska to alligators in Florida, and a degree in wildlife biology, Kris’ passion lies in wildlife management and matching wits with wild critters near and far.

66 – Guy Groenewold – Groenewold Fur and Wool

In this episode I talk with Guy Groenewold of Groenewold Fur and Wool. I reached out to Guy before the NAFA announcement because they’ve been buying fur in the south for several years now and will actually buy some furs green, particularly beavers, which is quite a big interest area as beavers are especially time consuming to put up. As a fur buyer, one major upside to dealing with GF&W is that when they take your fur, they pay you.

65 - NAFA No More

In this episode I talk about the many rumors that have been surrounding North American Fur Auctions lately. On November 4th NAFA announced filing for creditor protection, similar to chapter 11 bankruptcy. There are still many questions to be answered. Many trappers still have fur at NAFA, and of course the new trapping season is upon us. What are the options for selling your fur this season? This season may again be tough but hopefully we are coming out of the down fur market soon!

64 - Black Coyotes and Coydogs

In this episode I dive into some research papers on genetics of coyotes, wolves, and dogs, looking to answer the question that comes up at least once a year about coydogs. In doing so I also run across an interesting paper that may explain what causes the melanistic, or black coyote. Black coyotes are not common, but they aren’t necessarily uncommon either. Trappers catch them on occasion and hunters usually have pictures of black coyotes on their trail cameras. See the links to articles below.

61 - 2019/2020 Fur Market Outlook

In this episode I go through an email from John Zander, Zander Fur, discussing his outlook on the fur market for the upcoming season. Overall there doesn't look to be alot of changes. Looks like coyotes will still be hot, and some of the glut of ranch fur that has been on the market has been worked through, so maybe we are on the verge of the market rebounding somewhat. I can assure you that regardless of what the market is doing, I will still be stringing steel and catching critters!

60 - Trapping Ban and Mange

I know its a little late but in this episode I talk about my thoughts on the California trapping ban, which sets a scary precedent for all of us trappers. Trapping has been under constant attack this past year especially and this is one major foothold for the antis. I also field an email question about mange in coyotes, and mention a couple helpful resources.

Ep 59 - "Mindset of a Pro" Book Review

In this episode I review Clint Locklear's book, "Mindset of a Professional." This isn't a strategies and tactics book, but obviously by the title a mindset book. It speaks to the many people that may start off with the outlook that being a professional trapper isn't realistic. He goes through and breaks down how you could make a living fur trapping by state hopping, then gets into other ways of making trapping pay that can add to the fur income.
