I've had a guy in trying to get some beaver out of some of my ditches. He's gotten a couple with one being over 60 pounds in his estimation.

That is a lot of tree damage in one basket.

Bob, you may find this funny . 

Back in the day, when my buddy’s trapped , their main spots were , MCC , any drainage behind any shopping center , or restaurant  , along the Bay like behind the Bay Front restaurant and every other business down there . 
 

My friend and his two brothers trapped along with their Dad . Dad would skin rats on the hood of his car in the parking lot waiting for the boys to come out from hockey practice .

 

Riding in the car was always fun . In the back seat , one side of the floor was skins , the other body’s in a sallow cardboard box . Try to sit on the skin side ....

One time a coon my buddy “ killed” by hitting its head with the blunt side of his axe, came to in the car .

Times are different now sadly .

Well Saturdays check went well. 2 coyotes, one on each farm. Sunday we put in a few of the toughest sets I have ever made. The ground was frozen solid about 8" down. Had to chop out every trap bed and I am not looking forward to pulling those anchors out...lol. The first coyote in the pics had mange very bad. 

Sunday we placed 3 beaver sets. Tough area to do it. The banks on the stream are about vertical for 5-20'. the entire stream is mothing but large gravel. We found the bank den but cant set within 15'. 330 stands were about useless and the only water deep enough for a drowning rig was within that 15' of the den area. We managed to get 3 sets with 330's in so first check will be this morning. I always thought beaver trapping would be in marsh and silt areas but I guess they will go just about anywhere.

Well the check this morning held a  decent sized female. Worked a compass set that was set on sign about 2 weeks ago.  Hoping to get into another property for beaver so I whipped up some top side drowner anchor stakes.  We were running on our spare hammer becaseu I had the weld snap on the one we bought. I replaced the handle of it with 3/4" gas pipe so this should hold up. I beat the hell out of it this weekend chipping trap beds and driving anchors so I'm confident those welds will hold up long term.

My partner had a couple slow days on the checks.  Hit  a red on a set today that was made about 5 weeks ago. rebedded once a few weeks back when a deer stepped in it.  finally hit something there. There had been sign and it sure looked like a good location but it's been quiet there since we set it.

Be careful that small chips of paint don't fall into your trap bed when you use it. I learned that the hard way. Now I just paint a small ring around the tool handle. That ground hog hammer makes dirt holes a breeze.

Well boys and girls. Color us done. Pulled everything on Saturday. What a cold freaking day that was. We had a fun season and learned a lot. I'm looking forward to next year.  The frost was so deep and tight even the new disposable ancho puller I made wouldn't budge them.  

In the off season I will be fabbing a skinning machine. (maybe I'll post that build on here) making some more stretching boards and getting some bulk dry and waxed dirt put up. 

Beaver season is open until April 7th in the general area. If I were to find a place with some I might try so set in March but not expecting that. 

Thanks for following along.
