Charles Masheck’s Seminar Topic:
In 1971, at the young age of 14, Charlie Masheck started trapping. Although he enjoys water trapping, he is particularly fond of coyote, fox, and bobcat trapping. He traps in his home state of Indiana and has also trapped in Kansas, Arkansas, Mississippi, South Dakota, New Mexico, and Michigan.
He started Hoosier Trapper Supply in 1976, which has since grown into a complete trap-line outfitter, with an online and walk-in store. Charlie is the formulator of Leatherwood Creek Trapping Scents and Lip Licker Deer Lure. He also has two instructional DVDs: Coyote Trapping, Making Sense of it All; and Show Me the Money – Professional Fur Handling.
Charlie is the producer and host of Hoosier Trapper Outdoors, an online trapping show. He has been an instructor at The Fur Takers of America Trappers College (in connection with Purdue University) since 2013. In 2013 Charlie was inducted into the Fur Takers of America Hall of Fame.
