It's the Elkhorn River Non PC. We live on it so it kinda ends up spoiling me a bit. Pull the wagon right up to the boat, leave the boat in, drive 4 wheeler up to shop.

I missed that pic b4. Never seen anything like that. Had one with a deep ring around base of tail I assumed was from wire or an old snare.

But that one doesnít look like the notch is cut, more like it grew that way. Thatís how it looks to me anyway. Should get honorable mention in the T Man Beaver Tail contest. Lol

Just got back from checking, still have ice on, nothing showing on the banks, with the cold weather coming it will freeze back up pretty tight over here

Gonna be another week or so here before good access for open water.
Could get a few pressure sets in at the dams but not worth it without a few castor sets along with it.

I could have regaled y'all with my beaver trapping but it's spring beaver trapping all winter here. Wasn't sure that would be fair.

Anyway, our season ended March 15th. I've been taking it easy last few years. 193 last year and just 120 this one.

I am also done. Recaught one today, been fretting him getting away (snare), but he's in the freezer now! Happy trapping!

Thanks brownie.

Put another batch of backstrap jerky in to marinade tonight. Got everything on the boards except for the 5 from today.

I love this set up for boarding and take off. Itís an old swivel chair with top removed and a couple trim boards screwed on sides. Sits on trash can for great height and easy to throw scraps and staples away underneath. You stand in one spot and rotate the board when on and offing.
