Book: Grawe's Snaring Methods Vol. 2

A.M Grawe has made his living in the trapping business. He knows how to trap. Ardel told me how he once caught 36 fox in one run. This was in the late 70's when fox were worth a lot of money and competition was high. Grawe is not only an expert trapper, he's a lure maker and an author. He writes very well.
