About Us

Rid A Critter Inc. has been in business since 1996 and our Trapping Supplies Division was established in 2005 by our President, Mark Schaefer.  Mr. Schaefer is a life-long outdoorsman and trapper enthusiast.  He is a professional trapper and he is the author of two popular DVDs (Our DVD Catalog Item #'s: 8BP & 8BQ).

Mr. Schaefer is also active in many Trappers Associations and he is a lifetime member of the New York State Trappers Association and the National Trappers Association.  Mr. Schaefer has a strong drive to promote trapping, as it is an integral part of our American history and heritage.

Here at Rid A Critter, we believe in and promote the right of everyone to pursue animal trapping (and fur harvesting) as a hobby or as a profession.  Trapping is popular among men, woman & youngsters and is supplied by one of the best renewable resources available to us today.

We are located in Conway, SC.  Since our company founding, we have grown to become one of the largest mail/phone order and internet Trapping Supplies sales businesses with loyal customers throughout the USA.  Our Online eShop Store carries everything you will need relating to trapping including an inventory of over 600 items.

We specialize in just trapping and we are a one-stop shopping experience for you.  Even though we have grown greatly over the years, we are still small enough to cater to our customers and provide extraordinary personal Customer Service.  We service our customers on a personal level and never treat them as just a number in our account database. 

Our Company Motto includes:

  • Affordable Prices

  • Trappers Come First / We are Trappers Selling to Trappers

We sell only the highest quality products and our own Rid A Critter Inc. brand baits and lures are manufactured on-site with only the finest ingredients (and are time tested with proven results).  Our popular lure ingredients, glands and urine are always the freshest available.
