Tom Beaudette, from Model, Colo., is the owner of High Country Control.
He is an animal damage control (ADC) trapper and fur trapper with over 41 years in the ADC and fur trapping business.
I’ve had several conversations with Tom over the last several months, and our schedules finally allowed us to do an interview by phone recently.
He has worked in federal, state and private animal damage control programs in his home state of Colorado, and has fur trapped in New Mexico, Texas, Alaska, Nevada, and Idaho during his career as a trapper.
Tom has formulated his own lures and baits that can be used in all types of weather, and can withstand hot and cold, snow, rain and dry conditions.
