Had one of my more memorable days under ice yesterday. Had a few first, and a good day overall.

I assume that rat had killed the beaver and was dragging him to his den to eat him when they were caught. Ferocious little guys.

0 today, those are pictures from yesterday! There’s 4 muskrats in front of the fan, and the rest you can see in the picture!

That makes sense. The rat would have made it through, but he drug that beaver right into the triggers!

I will be checking and pulling my 4 remaining beaver sets tonight when I get off work. I expect them to be empty. I have one remaining beaver there but I expect it to lay low for a while after twisting out. I will be out of the area trapping by my farm so will let t it cool off for 8 days. Well one day I will go look for my rifle on the bottom of the lake.

Set the first traps of the year Saturday. Cleaned the rats out of two ponds, moved on to some new ponds today. May set for a few coons this weekend, was to concentrated on chasing deer to get out and set anything prior to this. Hard to get to motivated with the current fur prices. These rats are going to make their way to the tannery.

Your not going to get any better at skinning with an attitude like that!

Good job Mike. Looks like a lot of castor there. Hope you do good on the pelts too.

I plan to get out once our rivers start to come down. Flooding right now.
