Very impressive lots of hard work before and after,I pulled everything Sunday which was'nt much.Fun season stayed within 6 miles of the house and went out west hunting twice,mule deer hunting.Set up1/3rd of the regular line and caught a little more than half of what i caught last year 28 canine's 2 XXXXXL coon in coyote snare's 3 bobcat's,1 marten and 1 skunk snared in a coyote snare???????????9"- 9" loop neck snared.Never set a otter,beaver,mink or coon trap this year.Again congrats on a great trap check day.I might go out and snare a 1/2 dozen beavers under the ice for something to do later,you have to love those heavy under ice beaver's.

Setting that many houses here would pick up one or two.
Just wondered.Usually about 1 otter for every 15 beaver or so when setting entrances.

I started at about lunch! I got the kids ready for daycare and cleaned up around the house (dishes, laundry...) and all the other little things before leaving. Checked my first trap around 11 am.

Boco sometimes you just have to understand Minnesota trapping politics. You got 30 years for lessons.

Good job Mike.

That about right, probably on the low end. Depending on the year you can do 1:15 - 1:30 here. Keeping traps moving in front of new beaver is about the best realistic thing you can do to keep the numbers low.

My hands hurt thinking about that skinning.

We're a bunch of miles south of you Mike running predator sets. Me and the Mrs.

Keep after them!

Blessings,
Mark

Nice bunch of beavs. My tennis elbow is acting up just looking at them. The kids and I have been sticking mostly to rats, lately. I've only been keeping about half a dozen beaver sets going along my rat line. Fifty rats and a couple beaver is about all I want to do at once.

Thanks! I don’t know if I ever quit being after it. Just not much time after works, kids, and the fur shed to share it all!

Nice pics Mike. Nice to see you out trapping. Love the rat/beaver combo.
