Sometimes not as much enjoyment in city beaver work, but can have some fun with it now and then working around people. Recently had fun doing beaver work, like in the old days fur trapping, working in foot traffic areas along nature paths in "plain sight" while no one knew I was there. Even though what we do is all legal, validation from nosey third parties is not necessary. Love to work right next to people and go completely undetected, within a few feet of paths and hikers who are unaware of my very near presence. A father and son walked within 10 feet of me talking about investments, while two guys discussed a gas company just behind some brush while I took a 50 pound beaver out of a cage. I really wanted to holler up to the second pair, "dump that gas company, I had them, they stink," but thought better of it. Had one beaver job that, for no good reason, ended up on the AP back in '96. We were hunkered down in a boat as the land owner with two newspaper reporters walked by within 50 feet of us discussing the beaver issue. Never knew we were there. When the time was right, the beaver were caught, we called the paper and gave them the exclusive that made front page.
