Remember in the old days when we took photos of those beautiful put up beavers?

Today we admire castors and carcasses with the back straps cut out. Crazy how things change.

Thatís a dandy set btw!


Here ya go Nimzy. grin

Glad to see some guys still handle those trophies. Some of my favorite times in the woods was chasing beaver in the spring. Good for your soul (hard on the back)

How many are you aiming for Dahlgren?
It dont take long to pile up some beaver in spring if you got lots of locations.

Weíve been at it for a couple weeks. Best day was 5. There is no money in the fur but the castors are worth going after

Got 6 more today. Thought Iíd have them thinned out by now. Was having a beer with the boy down at river after I was unloaded and a big adult swam up on the sand bar right in front of the boat and started to make a castor mound. The things you see when you donít have a gun. Lol
