Linda Eanes

Linda Bolin Eanes – Virginia

I was born on 02-10-51 in Radford, VA and had 1 brother and 2 sisters. I grew up loving the outdoors. I got my 1st horse at age 13 and road in rodeos until I went to college and then switched to fox hunting, dressage and jumping. I lived in Arkansas for 4 years and chased wild razor backs on horseback trying to rope one, but never did, which was probably a good thing. What would I had done if I had caught one?

I met Kent Eanes in 2000 and fell in love with him and trapping. I caught my first grey fox with him that year and from then on I was hooked. I caught my first coyote 2 years later. I was always amazed and in awe of Kent’s expertise in the wild. He taught me a lot. His greatest gift to me was the gift of his love of trapping. I plan on never returning that gift.
