I only have the little 2.5 inch one and it does not get used for reason. Thing bigger ones may be good but the same ones are no good.
A follow up to explain. I believe in the case of the tiny ones its a case of downsizing beyond the capability of materials. The rod used for the jaws appears to be the same as on larger models, 1/4" rod. As such it really presents a small opening and negatively impacts the function of the trigger and closure. I get refusals and push asides with this one. JMO if redesigned to use lighter wire it may wore better.
I start scouting for beaver when I'm out bird hunting and getting trails and camps ready for the season,around late September-early October where I am.This is when the beaver start to cut feed and mud the house and dam.I scout for other furbearers when scouting for beaver.I also scout for other furbearers while trapping beaver and start to re-inforce the snares at the jackpots and repair any marten boxes that are down or damaged. I dump gut buckets at the jackpots as soon as I start catching beaver around the second or third week of October right up until I start trapping land fur in November,and also hang the gutted beaver carcasses in the wood shed at the cabins to cure for trapping later on.I start trapping all the animals visiting the baitsheds when season opens then set up the rest of the line while still trapping some beaver.i scout new country every day I can while trapping so I can hopscotch traps to extend the line as season progresses and keep the catch up.
Mallards of course, but a nice pack of pintails working on the whistle in a north wind are hard to beat. Widgeon are great too when they are really working the call and ecoys.
Those pintails might not taste good when they come off the prairie potholes in Canada, but after a couple months eating rice, they are right up there with the finest greenhead you ever ate.
I agree, mallards offer more diverse opportunities, here in the great lakes states,considering over decoys on water and more fervently , field shoots over recent corn harvests,those mallards are the bulk of attention. Corn fed mallards put roasters in the oven! Pintails are fantastic to work, decoy well,seem to ride high, just have to work them. Waxed full bodied teal in the oven,...hard to beat.
You're pretty quick to pronounce judgment on who is a Muslim, who is a Christian, etc.
Not judging, that's God's job. Just stating that, according to Jesus' words in the Bible, those people are not practicing Christianity. The Bible warns that there will be many false teachers who preach things that are contrary to God's demands, and that we should be vigilant in checking them against the words of God. If you'd spend some time reading the New Testament you would also know all this James.
I don't blame you. Plus you would have to figure out locations of where to release them then drive there to release them.
They are released about 75 miles north of town in a BMA.I have rode with Art(the trapper that currently does nuisance bear) when he releases bears. Be fun to let some big ones go in Toronto.LOL. The expenses for the job is very low compared to the wage for removing a bear.
M'rats can not survive long without adequate water no matter what else. 95% of the small acreage, shallow ponds that I trap dry(ice fully subsumed) during winter and arevery low in mid summer(this year drought dry) because of excessive Ag drainage. Miles of plastic pipe has lower natural water table significantly. M'rat trapping will never be the same now. They may fill in the spring and fall but that isn't enough to recruit many M'rats. The few remaining large lakes/rivers are just not prime habitat. All other factors are just piled on this. M'rat population has collapsed by more than 90% for the last several seasons and doesn't look to improve. I collected barely 100 trapping as hard as I used to take +1000.
