About Me....Andy Federico I decided to put up some pics and share a little of my life with everyone....I have always been an avid outdoorsman...trapping fox and other fur animals helped put food on the table for us many times... but it is Almighty God that has kept me and sustained me through many years. I owe everything to him. Read Acts chapter 2 ..Verse 38...that is the plan of salvation...It Will change your life! Baptised in Jesus name and filled with the Holy Ghost! Some pics may not be for everyone...hunting photos and such....Take care, Andy

1 That's me Andy Federico holding a water snake I caught...and my childhood best friend Tim Costello. Seemed like all I ever did was look for reptiles!
2 My wife and I lived in the mountains of Pensylvania for about 11 years...that snake I am holding is a 51.5" black head Timber Rattler...I used to love catching Rattlers!! Yes I was kinda crazy! I no longer have the urge!..lol..!
3 This is me now...2006...Breeding Boas...has given me a fresh new perspective!
4 This is me in the late 70's.
5 Trapping was a way for me to provide added income for my family...I learned by trial and error...but persistance paid off!
6 Here's the kids! Back when we lived in PA...They always loved checking out the animals I would bring home...this was a fairly large Coyote.
7 Every year there would be several fur sales....This is me and two of my boys...waiting to sell.
8 This is Andy Jr. sitting with my furs.
9 Another fur sale...
10 Nice big Coon!
11 My most favorite Mammal on the earth! The Red Fox! Trapping culls the population...alot nicer than mother nature does...with disease and starvation ...due to over population...Thinning fox populations provides more room for better feeding healthy foxes! Fur is a re-newable resource!
12 Here is me and Andy Jr. with a buck I got....kinda looked like a horse!!lol...he dressed out at 208 pounds!
13 Another pic of the buck!
14 I worked with the PA Game commission...doing a Bobcat study...they were supposed to pay me $100 for each Bobcat we radio collared and released...funding never did come through from Harrisburg...but the kids in the nieghborhood had a great time!....Take my advice it's not easy stuffing a Bobcat in a cage with no help!
15 My first and only Black bear...1989...162 pounds!
16 Here I am releasing one of the biggest Bobcats I have ever seen! I bet it feeds on small deer...anyway...they are protected...so they must be released!
17 Here I caught a double on Gray Fox! It always was a thrill!
18 One mean son of a gun!
19 Getting a load ready for fur sale!
20 Andy Jr. and his first Red Fox!
21 Here is my dad and my two older boys...and dad's little sheltie.
22 My wife Michele and baby!
23 Here is Princess Belle! She was a registered treeing walker coonhound! Boy could she tree coon!
