Family trapper- yes the three color phases are common up here. Throw in the little white arctic fox too for a nice occasional surprise.

HFT- the beav was fully submerged. I cleaned skinned it and the castors are drying in my furnace room. Tiny house so I'm thinking there isn't a whole lot of beavers in there. I found another house about five minutes drive from my house that looks like it might hold lots of beavers. The new house is about 7-8 feet high. The only way I found the first house is by finding the air vent with the feed pile out front.

Been thinking about that after reading what graydog and saskamusher wrote, makes more sense to me now. Sounds like that new house will produce for you! Hope you connect with a few more!

I got a Samson a few years ago, felt sorry for the dang thing and let it go. In hind sight I should have taken it out of the gene pool. I wouldn't think you'd get much for one if you could find a buyer.

Beaver always have those marks on them from conibear the smaller beaver really have them. There is no fat where the trap hits.

Here is a hat I made for my daughter out of a Sampson red,quite a few years ago.
I caught 3 sampsons that year.

The two Samson foxes I caught in the past had zero (0) guard hair on them. Looked exactly like a fox in fleece one piece underwear. Looked more like a cat than a dog and if I remember correctly they had slightly thicker leather. They went to auction so I can probably look up what they went for.

My Lowest price for fox at the auction the Sampson fox was at was $46. Someone must've thought it looked nice

Because they have no guard hair,they are soft like a sheared beaver.

I sold the Samson red for $25 in '78 or '79 when a typical Alaskan red was selling for $100+, if I remember correctly. One of the coolest fox furs I've ever seen was a Samson cross. It was a uniform cream color except for a distinct chocolate colored cross about an inch to two inches wide running from elbow to elbow, and from between the ears to about mid-tail.

Second beaver from the same trap. Picked up a lynx too but the picture is blurry. I missed two lynx and two fox but I'm happy with a beaver and lynx. Lynx looks pretty good compared to the first one I got.

Turn your camera 90 degrees. That should do it.

The one sampson I caught in western AK looked more like a fox colored poodle than anything else. Got $10 for that one from Goldberg in '81

Akroper- if it was that easy I'd have done it already.

Just giving you a hard time. Actually I'm jealous. I haven't figured out how to post pictures, sideways or other ways.

Sounds like the hard time I usually give people! I've never had the sideways picture problem before. Got to start using my camera instead of I phone.

Nice picture taken at Aklaviks community char harvest in October.


I took the kids out this past weekend and decided my Nephew has to start watching less and doing more. Here he is with my daughter setting a trail set.
Later on Morgan got cold and Rylan and I finished the day with this nice cross fox from the very last trap.



Here is some pictures I took during the community char harvest of an unusually colored wolverine shot by muskrat411's son Samuel. Very nice white feet and chest markings on this one.
