Altoona, PA, May 05, 2023 --( Dennis Keller, who grew up in the small town of Salona in central Pennsylvania, has completed his new book, “Muskrat and Mink: Trapping with Pap”: a fascinating tale that follows a grandfather who teaches his grandson Lance all about trapping muskrat and mink, from the history of trapping to actual scouting and trapping missions that the two undertake together.

Author Dennis H. Keller participated in various sports while growing up, but the one sport that he particularly liked was that of trapping. His father, Arthur W. Keller, introduced him and his brother, Arthur W. Keller II, to the art of trapping at a young age, and they both fell in love with the sport. After completing high school and college, Dennis became a teacher and later, an elementary school principal. His brother worked as a math teacher for a couple of years and then worked for the Department of Defense. To this day, they both cherish the days they spent on the trapline thanks to their father.

Keller writes, “The purpose of this book is to instill interest, knowledge, and love for the sport of trapping. It provides a good foundation on what equipment is needed if one is going to pursue this sport. It also explains how to properly prepare your trapping equipment. It gives the reader some background knowledge about muskrats and mink and what types of sets are commonly used to catch muskrats and mink. Information is also given on how to skin, flesh, stretch, and dry your pelts.

“Since many children do not have fathers, it shows how a grandfather can have a positive influence on his grandson. Having read this book, the reader will have increased knowledge on the art of trapping, will experience trapping success, and will develop a love for the sport.”

Published by Page Publishing, Dennis Keller’s engaging tale includes illustrations of actual trapping sets, as well as descriptions and habits of muskrats and mink in order to provide readers with the basic knowledge they need in order to get started on their own trapping experiences.
