Does anyone else have this problem? I clean the dang thing up, tell myself "this time" I am gonna keep it neat and organized. Before long I start slipping and BOOM it looks like this again!!!! Guess I will clean it up again and start the same ol' routine over! Maybe we need to have a cluttered shop contest? shocked grin laugh

Mines pretty bad right now, however I think you got me beat. I think the blood your tracking around the floor would definitely trigger a somethings gotta give response in me.

You can still walk in it without climbing on top of stuff, so it's not that cluttered. Our garage needs cleaned out bad. My 5 barns need straightened up too.

It happens...

I've been using the time off of work to get a little early spring cleanup done.

I'm sure I'll have it nice and organized just in time to destroy it when I start trapping beaver.

I'm betting no one sits in that lawn chair without a hazmat suit on. Then again I hear some people get excited wearing those.

The only fur I had put up was rats and beaver, my fur buyer preferred to buy fur green. Getting up in age and limited by health issues, I wanted to take care of a few goals on my "Bucket List". I finally put up Raccoon, possum, fox and mink. I also caught and put up coyote, ermine and fisher that were on that "Bucket list". This season my truck wasn't able to pass inspection and not considered road worthy. I wound up waiting over a month for a cap for the new truck. I didn't trap this year due to lack of truck and then cap, I am not comfortable leaving some gear in the truck while making sets, I have been ripped off before. I did managed to catch a skunk in the yard, on purpose. I did the whole process; defunking, skinning, fleshing, boarding and removing the essence. That was way up on the "Bucket List"! If God willing and able, I will might try for Marten, Bobcat and Otter this upcoming season.
The boards are still pretty clean, due to... I don't set many traps due to health reasons, I also wash most of my fur before fleshing. The PVC fleshing beams might help also, I wipe them down regularly with clorox wipes and degrease as needed.


The Beaver Table skinning top is all seal and gets wiped down regularly also.

Swa dust/shavings and cardboard helps keep thing clean, that and my OCD too.

I have been avoiding coon, work and little value, concentrated on other goals.




In short do I trap? Yes, but for enjoyment! wink

I must say that my shop looks like yours AFTER cleaning! And it hasn't been cleaned in about four years. I always tell my wife to notice what comes OUT of the shop rather than what is in it!
