I’d like to welcome PCS Outdoors as a new advertiser here on Trapping Today. John Chagnon runs the company. He’s an enthusiastic trapper and a fun guy to talk to. If you’re wondering what PCS stands for, it’s Phoenix Composite Solutions. They’re an aerospace company – a seemingly strange match for the trapping supply business. The business was a creation of John’s passion. As he worked his way up in the company, he would trap before and after work, and had some trouble finding trapping supplies for his line. So he convinced others in the company to start an outdoors branch, where they offer one of the largest selections of trapping supplies in the country.
PCS Outdoors is based in northern Michigan, near Lake Huron. John still actively traps before work and runs the company on a full time basis – sounds like a pretty good gig! He also grew up and trapped in the U.P., Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and has made a few trapping and fur handling instructional videos. He does a lot to promote trapping and help educate other trappers.
I’ve got a pile of trapping supplies made by PCS to try out on my northern Maine trapline, and hope to provide some feedback on how they work. I look forward to working with John and PCS, and hope you will support their business along with our other advertisers. Click on their banner ad on the site to shop for trapping supplies. And let them know you heard about them from Trapping Today. Happy trapping!
