    Reilee Helms catching a fox using western cats inc. lures and baits       

   MY NAME IS REILEE HELMS.  I AM THE NEW OWNER OF WESTERN CATS, INC.  I AM A 10 YEAR OLD HOMESCHOOLED GIRL WHO LOVES THE SPORT OF TRAPPING. I LIVE AND TRAP IN SOUTHERN UTAH. I BOUGHT MY FATHERS LURE RECIPES (ON PAPER) THIS LAST YEAR, THROUGH A LOT OF BEGGING.

  MY DAD WAS A LONG LINNER TRAPPER BACK IN THE 1980’S TRAINED BY RAY MILLIGAN.  MY DAD STARTED BUILDING HIS OWN LURES BACK THEN AND HAS BEEN BUILDING THEM EVER SINCE. 

  THIS LAST TRAPPING SEASON I ASKED MY DAD WHY HE NEVER STARTED A LURE COMPANY, AND HIS REPLY WAS, HE WAS ALWAYS TOO BUSY.  I ASKED HIM IF I COULD SELL THEM AND HE HESITANTLY REPLYIED, IF I WOULD STICK WITH IT FOR 5 YEARS AND NOT QUIT, NO MATTER WHAT, THEN HE WOULD HELP ME.

   MY DAD’S LURES ARE PROFESIONAL GRADE LURES.   THEY HAVE CAUGHT FOR HIM PERSONALY, 100’S UPON 100’S OF COYOTES.  I KNOW THAT HE CAUGHT 148 COYOTES IN 15 DAYS ON “KANE KILLER LRC” ALONE.  HE HAS CAUGHT 100’S UPON 100’S OF BOBCATS, AND GREY FOX.  MY DAD KNOWS HOW TO BUILD LURES.  HE KNOWS WHATS REQUIRED IN A LURE FOR IT TO HOLD UP IN HARSH CONDITIONS, AND HE KNOWS HOW TO KEEP THE LURE WORKING OVER TIME.

   I KNOW THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF LURE COMPANIES OUT THERE AND A LOT OF GOOD ONES TOO.   BUT I ALSO KNOW THAT THERE IS ALWAYS ROOM FOR ONE MORE GREAT COMPANY. 

    I MAY BE YOUNG AND INEXPERINCED AT THIS BUSINESS, BUT MY DAD HAS BEEN A C.E.O. OF A CORPERATION FOR 21 YEARS AND HAS PROMISED HIS HELP TO GET ME GOING.  BUT THE BIGGEST REASON I HAVE TAKEN ON THIS CHALLENGE IS TO GET OTHER KIDS INVOLVED IN TRAPPING.  I HAVE GROWN UP IN THIS TRAPPING ENVIROMENT, BUT I KNOW THAT OTHER KIDS WOULD LOVE IT AS MUCH AS I DO, IF THEY JUST HAD THE CHANCE TO GO CHECKING TRAPS JUST ONCE.  WE NEED US KIDS INVOLVED OR THE SPORT WILL GO AWAY AND BUSINESSES LIKE OURS WILL GO AWAY FOREVER.
