Most trappers are entrepreneurial by nature, but how many of us are actually making money in the industry? Clint Locklear has succeeded in the business better than most. Starting from nothing, he built a wildly popular brand of trapping lures, created numerous books and DVD’s, developed a high end ADC business, and started a business training program for trappers.
In “Serious Money Making Strategies”, Clint offers tips, techniques and advice for trappers who want to succeed in any particular niche in the trapping industry, from fur trapping to ADC work, lure making, supply dealerships and everything in between. From an insider’s perspective of the industry, he covers the common pitfalls people encounter, mistakes they make, and unrealistic ideas about business. If you think you can hang up a shingle and expect business to start rolling in, you’re dreaming, and Clint tells you why. In fact, this industry is competitive and tough to break into, and you need to find an edge, and take advantage of inefficiencies in the market that others are overlooking.
“Serious Money Making Strategies” is a six hour, three-DVD set that goes in depth on a lot of topics. If you’re an ADC trapper, Clint will tell you how to gain more clients and have business come to you. It’s not easy, and takes a lot of patience and hard work, but the tactics produce results. If you want to start a supply company (the toughest, in my opinion – there are so many great suppliers out there already!), you need to give folks a reason to do business with you, and set yourself apart from the others. Same goes with lure and bait making, books and DVD’s.
Though I was eager to learn more about breaking into the trapping industry, I was a little hesitant to drop the $50 for this DVD set. But after listening to Clint’s Trapping Radio podcast a while, I picked up enough valuable tips and trapping business ideas, I figured it would be worth it. And it turns out it was. So far I’ve listened to it three times, playing from the laptop while I worked in the fur shed (I never have time to watch TV, but always consume audio while I work). I’ve picked up new information each time, and I know I’ll continue to listen to this one every few months. Seems like a new nugget of information comes to me each time I hear about different business ideas. Depends on what I’m working on at the time, and how my perspective is.
Before you get too excited about this DVD, I feel compelled to give you a little heads up on production quality. Clint is a professional in the trapping business, but not in videography. The audio quality is pretty marginal, and there’s tons of background noise off and on – dogs barking, vehicles on the road, guns firing, and the occasional opening and closing of the creaky shed door. Don’t expect a Hollywood production. Instead, focus on the information. You’ll need to focus, because there’s lots of it to soak in.
If you want to make a profit in the trapping industry, Clint Locklear’s “Serious Money Making Strategies” is a must-watch. There is a lot of money to be made in this business, but you have to go about it the right way. This DVD gets you headed in that direction. With a sound strategy and lots of hard work, you have a pretty good chance of making that happen.
