Thanks folks, I appreciate the congrats and encouragement.

I know for some of the experienced beaver trappers doesnít seem like that big a deal but I just wasnít getting it. Even after seeking help from the local expert.

Tidal water....what is that? Ocean going beavers with tides that rise and fall? They sounds interesting and difficult.

How much is the rise and fall generally? I don't trap tidal water but do trap Corp maintained rivers. Those rise and falls can be aggravating at times. Lol.

This is just a prediction and they donít actually have our creek so I have to select the closest place and guess from there.

Boy, can they ever! I used to trap the Ks river a lot, but to old to fight it now. I had beaver under water for days before with no way to get to them. Also had dead beaver out of water where the water went down six feet over night. The worst was one time when I went out on an island to check some mink traps on the ice. I started hearing ice cracking all of a suddun, and ran for the place I had been crossing, by the time I got to the shore, I was running in six inces of water....coming up fast. The Corp of Engineers is a danger to any trapper that works these rivers, as they will not post anything telling that they intend to change it....they just do it! mad

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
