Papio Creek Trapping Supply is owned by Shane and Nancy Claeys of Blair, Nebraska.
Shane developed a love for hunting and trapping at a young age, skills that were passed down to him by his father Jim, his dear friend Joe, as well as a few old time hunters and trappers in his hometown of Bennington, Nebraska.
Shane spent a big part of the 1980s, trapping along the Niobrara and Missouri River bordering Nebraska and South Dakota. Each year, October through March, longlining in a four wheel drive, a snowmobile, a flat bottom boat and on foot — was what he loved to do and quickly discovered he could make a pretty good living at it during those lean economic times.
Because of Shane’s trapping experiences, many of the products we offer are designed with the longliner trapper in mind. Products that save time, are reasonably priced and will allow you to set your traps quickly, locate them in a hurry and most importantly, increase your capture rate — because there’s nothing more frustrating and disappointing than a snapped trap with nothing in it.
We are confident our products are going to bring you more furs. Period.
We encourage you to try our products and judge for yourself. There are no re-do’s when it comes to earning your business, so we want to get it right.
We will do everything we can to make you a successful trapper — because you deserve nothing less.
Papio Creek appreciates what you do. Thank you for your valued business.
