CUBBY BOXES with Footgrippers is a simple, practical, no-nonsense method of taking raccoon, fisher and other furbearers. This is a virtually weather-proof method of trapping. The following ARE NOT NEEDED: trowel, sifter, poly fiberfill, dry dirt, waxed dirt, grass clippings, buckwheat hulls, antifreeze, salt, plastic bags or waxed paper, and many other trapping items. Details in this book are found nowhere else. There are complete instructions for building and using boxes. Learn how to bed footgrippers solidly inside the wooden box. Target the furbearer’s paw directly over the trap pan. Click on our book section for more info.

With a lifetime of holding a fishing rod and wielding a rifle, I’ve become involved in numerous forms of communicating those experiences—writing, editing, publishing, photography, and videotaping. This website has been launched to help share those outdoor experiences and knowledge.

The column on the right shows projects I am currently involved in. These include magazines I edit and layout, websites I publish, books I’ve authored, and DVDs I helped publish. It is my desire to help as many as possible to enjoy the outdoor experience. Please click onto the projects to learn more about them.

Thank all of you for visiting this site. I trust it’ll help you to gain knowledge and enjoyment from fishing, hunting and trapping. 


If you are ordering paperback books or DVDs, please send me what you want to order and your address to I’ll then send you the total due with the shipping, and where to send payment on PayPal. As soon as the payment hits the account, I’ll ship your books/DVDs.


My current on-going projects include the magazines American Trapper, Wisconsin Trapper, Texas Fur Trails, and Buckeye Trapper. A new DVD, Appalachian Mountain Fisher Trapping, is in production now and will be available later this summer. I am putting the finishing touches on a new book, Trapline Scents and Odors, to be released later in 2024. I will continue to work on various outdoor projects, to advance the enjoyment and skill of those who take advantage of them. If I’ve learned anything through the years, it is that the best way to get ahead is to make every day your masterpiece. Extending that wisdom, I am endeavoring to make every magazine, book and DVD my personal masterpiece – making each the best it an possibly be. That transforms into each magazine, book or DVD performing beyond your expectations. What a great goal this is!
