Chris Perchaluk recently came out of retirement to compete in the 2021 Northern Manitoba Trappers’ Festival King Trapper competition and won for the fourth time. Twelve years ago, Chris was a spectator, not a competitor. This all changed when he filled out the entry form to become a King Trapper competitor. At first, he was intimidated, but spent the first few years observing and learning from the other competitors searching for ways to inch up the score board. With much patience, practice, patience, practice, patience, and more practice he eventually started to see the results that he needed to be in the top standings. Each time that he competed he discovered a new way to create the necessary points to bring him up the score board of the competition. When asked about the most challenging aspect of the King Trapper competition is “staying in great physical fitness”.
