Last night we busted open the dam and 30-45 minutes before dark a beaver came swimming on down the creek. We got him and as of this morning the dam hadn't been patched back up and no traps disturbed. I'm gonna go this evening to check the dam and sit again for awhile just to see if something does show up.

Aix, tomorrow is day 3, I'll leave traps set till at least then. I haven't made up my mind if I want to leave them till Tuesday morning even if the dam doesn't get patched up and I see nothing else. I may pull half tomorrow and the other half Tuesday just so I don't have to lug out so many at once and I'll have a few out one more night in case a straggler comes cruising through.

The 72 hour check is for killer traps that are submerged ONLY. Your post about slide wires and beaver sitting on the bank makes me think you are mixing things up a little.

Nice to see you are getting the problem taken care of and I'm sure the landowner will be pleased.
