Founded in 1975, The Trapper & Predator Caller is the leading source of practical, comprehensive information for North American fur harvesters.
Each issue is packed with feature articles by North America’s most knowledgeable trappers and predator callers. T&PC provides the most thorough wild fur market report in North America and informs readers about vital industry trends.
The magazine is published 10 times each year: January, February, March, April/May, June/July, August, September, October, November and December. T&PC provides current, practical information for fur trappers, animal-control workers and predator callers. Each issue also contains up-to-date reports from state trapping association partners across the country.
“Since December 1999, Trapper’s World has risen, fallen, changed, and persevered through it all. We have a unique thing with this magazine; it is owned, operated, written, and read by trappers. The best part of Trapper’s World is the people that are involved, namely you the readers. We hope trappersworld.com will be a further means of providing you what you want, more trapping info from the best trappers in the business.” – Kyle Kaatz, Editor
Trapper’s Post is published and edited by leading writer and trapper Bob Noonan. Each of our six yearly issues is tabloid sized, and packed from cover to cover exclusively with trapping information.
Trapper’s Post provides in-depth articles with detailed information and clear photos and illustrations, to help readers become more effective trappers. Some articles are by recognized experts, others are by excellent trappers known only to a handful of people. As Bill Nelson said, “Some of the best trappers in the country never saw their names in print.” They are now, in our pages. So are regular trappers, who have valuable observations and stories to share.
Trapper’s Post offers much more than how-to trapping methods. We have articles on lure and bait making, fur handling, equipment, trapline experiences, interviews, humor, atmosphere, history and heritage, news, and more.
From the beginning, FUR-FISH-GAME included monthly departments about hunting dogs, woodcraft, coon hunting, fur raising, guns, fur markets, roots and herbs, questions and answers, and fishing. Mr. Harding was one of the first national advocates of the growing field of scientific wildlife management, conservation, and good sportsmanship. He fought to keep the game laws fair and consistent. He called for shorter trapping seasons where certain furbearers were becoming scarce, and he opposed the federal government’s wide-spread use of poison to wipe out the remaining Western wolves, coyotes and other large predators.
By the late 1930s, HUNTER-TRADER-TRAPPER was out of business. But FUR-FISH-GAME continues to this day, guided by its founder’s core principles and beliefs. Arthur Robert Harding passed away in 1930, yet the fourth generation of his family is still dedicated to publishing “… a magazine edited for practical pleasure and profit – edited and published for those who wish to read in plain, everyday language about fur, fish, and game.”
As we have inherited our great trapping heritage, so too have we inherited the responsibility of carrying out our wonderful sport in an ethical manner. Through education of today’s trappers, our goal is to provide the information necessary for them to carry through on this responsibility.
Our goal is to encourage today’s trappers to join their national, and state trapping associations. By joining these organizations, we strengthen our numbers for battle against those who would take this great sport from us. We have many battles ahead in the legislative arena and these organizations need more than just our money. It’s imperative that we show the public who we are and the good we are doing for the wildlife. Always keep in mind that we are the true protectors of wildlife and the wild places in which the animals live.
Our goal is to keep the sport of trapping alive to pass on to the next generation by keeping the trapper abreast of any impending legislation that may threaten our sport and suggest the proper action the trapper can take on any such legislation. .
