Yup. I figured two degrees and rain/ice pellets is better than tomorrow's forecast. Eight degrees and pouring rain. Lol

When I snared beaver in this kind of weather,I put a block of ice from the hole on each side of the crosser on top to keep the beaver from hauling everything up on top of the ice.Works real good.

If I was near to you I would take you up on the skinning offer .The only way I get halfway good at anything is to just keep doing it again and again .You got a pile to take care of .So the chance is waiting to do just that .It is apparent you enjoy all aspects of trapping beaver . Good luck on the next check

Thanks! I do. I enjoy this time of year where I get quick at skinning them. Hoping for some good money out of the castors.

With our rock bottoms I do that sometimes to keep the pole from floating up, but I put the chainsawed chunk on the crosser pole. I have found shoving the hole with icy slush or firm snow works passably well also. Still, with all the rain forecast the ice chunks would be floating around lol

Those pelts should net you decent money too-did you notice the premium paid for hvy beaver at the recent sales.The larger ones should be an easy 30-40 bucks not counting the castors.Couple good paydays there for sure.Unfortunately the otters will be about the same.
Put the ice chunks on top of the crosser on top of solid ice,not in the hole.

I wasnt really after the otter, but I'll take them I guess. And there are a few good x-3x dark ones in the mix.

Half my otter we're in snare poles this year. I found that a bit odd.

Haha, year I got a bad head cold and shaved because I hate having a runny nose and a beard. Silly reason but a pet peeve. I should have waited. It's tough to take a beaver trapper seriously without facial hair!

Sometimes those otters remind me of pole dancers, the way they wrap around the poles, all in entertainment.
