Smith – Smitty’s Johnny Thorpe: Interview with a Legend – by R.C. Smith
JOHNNY THORPE is NO DOUBT, one of the biggest TRAPPING GREATS in the country. This Book was written by Michigan Trapper RC Smith (Smitty) after his personal one on one interview with Johhny Thorpe in the early 1990’s. Johnny Thorpe talks in great detail about his trapping background then he goes into his favorite sets, traps, lures and general trapping and furbearer knowledge for each animal that he has great experience with, to include Muskrat, Mink, Coon, Otter, Beaver Open Water, and Beaver Trapping Under Ice, Red Fox, Grey Fox, Coyote, Bobcat, Fisher, Marten, and Badger. Most people probably have never heard of a lot of sets that Johnny describes in this book.
