About Us


Why Trappin' Fool you ask?

It is because friends and family have always called me a fool for being out in the wind, rain, blowing snow, sub-zero temps wading in water doing what I love..., trapping. I started trapping at the ripe age of 9 and never missed a year. I bring 34+ years of experience to you.

I mainly handle nuisance wildlife conflicts in Laporte and St. Joseph Counties in Indiana. However I will go to other counties.  I handle conflicts with squirrels, raccoon, opossum, rabbits, woodchuck, chipmunks, fox, coyote, muskrat, mink, weasel, skunk, beaver and snakes. I do minor exclusion and repair. If you have a problem we can come to a solution.

In the fall of 2015 I began buying fur. I am a licensed fur buyer in Indiana. 

In the fall of 2016 I began a group outdoor page on Facebook.and started publishing how to videos and other videos on youtube.

In 2017 I began selling retail products at Shows. 

Summer of 2019.  I am now handling mole problems.  Call for pricing.


Trapping classes.

I offer several trapping classes.  Classes are limited to 12 students.  Prices vary from $45-$125 and are 2-8 hours long.  If interested in booking me for a class at your place call for pricing.
