Edmonton Newspaper Takes a Deep Look Into Tradition of Trapping

Gordy Klassen

Gordy Klassen, the president of the Alberta Trappers’ Association, is prominantly featured in a compelling Edmonton Journal story on the culture of trapping.

“This isn’t a job that everyone can do,” Klassen said in the story. “It takes a lot of skills. It takes a certain mindset.”

The story takes a deep look into many aspects of trapping and the life of a dedicated trapper. Klassen, who was recently featured in a Trapper & Predator Caller story on trapping wolves, revealed how he became a trapper and how integral trapping is to him.

“This is absolutely as important as breathing (to me),” he said. “It’s hard to explain.”
