Hi yall,

Im brand new on here and brand new to trapping. I wanted to share some pics of my first ever successful trap check. I got this nice beaver in a 330 and the muskrat on a foothold drowner. I tell you what, walking up to that trap and seeing fur in it was insanely exciting! [Linked Image]

Congratulations!!!

Now your next test is, can you get the UPS packages past the wife unnoticed?
There will be plenty. Luckily most trapping supplies come in discreet brown boxes.
