Nice pic Dave
On another note I was skinning a beaver out when I can across something stuck in the hide.I couldnt see anything on the fur side but I could feel it with my knife.Am not real sure what its made out of but seems like a calcium stone at first I thought it was a rock or a 22 bullet,but not real sure,but like I said couldnt see anything on the fur side figured I would ask ya'll about it. Maybe from an old fight?

AK, WOW, that is a really nice work on that antler.

Interested in the new antler stain you used. Looks so natural. I have antler stain from a taxi supply house but can never get it to come out even close to natural.

How do you like it? Any issues? I'm on my third gas puller, and it's on it's last leg. I hate how loud they are, and man, are they ever dangerous.

All things considered I think they are the way to go, for us. We don't want the gas puller at all, for the two reasons you mentioned. This is one model down from their top & it's been going for 7yrs now. I do wish I'd gone one model higher.

It'll pull a decent 3-pot shrimp string or a heavy skate, but sometimes needs a little 'help'.

I can buy their highest level model for around $1400 local so I think they are a decent value.

Don't expect commercial fishing - level power or quality, but for hobby use it's a pretty good unit.

Thanks for the info. I operate out of a skiff, but have the electric capabilities on board, so am really thinking it may be the way to go. Just wondering if they can haul a 3'X3' king pot, for example, and speed of line hauling.

AKPawpincher has one on his boat, I dont recall the model though...

It pulled some pretty good size crab pots up from 500+ feet, they were chocked full of crab and one had a big octopus in it as well.....

perhaps he will chime in...

We get the occasional octopus in crab and shrimp pots, too. Man, you think you got the mother lode as it's coming up with the water resistance they have when spread out in the pot! Only to find a very orange octo and a bunch of carapaces.

Now Pete , all you had to do was come down to Mt and buy a few buffalo hunt raffle tickets . To all the doubting Thomas's we had a great time hunting buffalo on the Crow Indian Resevation ! Remember Pete I now have 3 tribal members for grandsons who will be ready to go hunting real soon with grandpa and his buddy ! ( this is my response from page 23 )

Ha Ha Pete , yes I have this is true . I may have a new area to trap a wolf or two this winter around here with a few fast coyotes also maybe some bobcats as well ? The youngest had the boys down by the river as some geese were flying by, London pointed at them and shot them with his finger then turned to his mom and asked where's grandpa to help get them . He turns 3 in June .
How was your trip ?

AK- Beautiful job on that Bou carving. My buddy uses shoe polish to stain his antler carvings back to a natural look. He also did a caribou skull and rack we found in a mountain stream and got the white antlers back to natural looking.

I hope your flight is a good one ! Did you have a hipo rib steak for me ? Alvin was ran out of office after the last election down in Crow . However I know the guy who took over his job with the buffalo pasture .
I hope to hear back from another ranch that has buffalo as well . I'll keep you in the loop .

Awesome carving!!

Anyone get out to do some spring trapping?
Had a great season on rats, my best so far. Pulled 2 days ago, always feels good to end the year on a high note!
Take it easy, LB

Way to go LB! I been itching to get after ice out beaver, but the ice ain't out. It started to break up a couple days ago on the Chatanika, but it's still clogged, good.


Rumors of my assimilation have been greatly exaggerated.

Nice LB sure wish we could trap late rats.Our season closes March 31 with everything else, kinda stupid but until the next cycle I gotta live with it. Have a couple other things I want to change as well so hopefully I can get it done


We get out of life only as much as we really want and work hard enough to achieve

Sorry I've been slacking. We use 3x3 pots that weigh around 45 to 50 lbs baited. The puller I have is rated up to 200 lbs. and pulls about as fast as a similar sized hydraulic puller on medium speed. I have an extra battery on board just for the pot hauler and it is good for a bunch of hauls out of 500 ft. The heaviest pot we pulled was probably in the neighborhood of 120-130 pounds and it pulled great. The limiting factor seems to be the davit as much as the puller. I really like the foot switch... works great! I have a Safe-T- Hauler.

Allot of guys that only fish 2-400 lobster traps from smaller boats use these. I have used them and they work well.
