Oh yeah, I love it. Do you have kind of a lazy Suzan deal peeler?

The 44Ē height helps my back out too, which has taken a beating this week. You could actually adjust most of these type chairs up and down to find what works for you.

It was a thrift store table that I bought with a single bottom support post. I sawed the post off and put a swivel brace on it from a bar stool and then bolted that to the underside of the table.

Did the same thing with my skinning trough.

It means I can both skin and put up beaver without having to move around a table or trough.

Youíll pass me for sure TD. Iím heading out to skin a couple then gotta work a few hours then pulling, todayís the last day of season. Should end up with 30ish. I have a dozen or so to add to them from the fall.

Thatís funny peeler, I was just looking at my boarding set up and wondering if I could rig it for swivel skinning as well. Iíll have to give it a go next year.

Our last day here. I have 2 snares set and a 330 set on a small creek that dams have all but washed out. Yesterday I caught a nice sized male at a 1 of the snare sets.

Headed out to pull, just as soon as the Aleve kicks in. Stupid back, may have to jump start it with a CC bump.

Got 5 more today and pulled everything. At my last set yesterday I was pretty much out of Backbreaker. I put a little river water in my jar and shook it up to get all the dregs. I dumped the works on the bank above the trap. Boom, last Beaver on the last of the Backbreaker, 50 pounder. LOL!

Thatís how my river looked this year TD. I havenít trapped them very hard the last few years maybe thatís why. Have never caught that many in such a small stretch of river before. I usually have to keep moving up or down stream every few days. Good luck out there!

Pulled my gear yesterday and ended up with five more beaver. Ten total out of this area here in northeast Michigan in about ten days, not bad for not having any sign around. Gotta love spring beaver trapping, all there moving around and traveling gets them into trouble. Had a couple otter come through and pooped on one of my castor mounds to show me who's boss around here.. grin As usual had a great time in the woods with my dad anyway and didn't get any ticks on us this year which is a bonus.

[Linked Image] Finish two a day. Takes an hour each day if you keep at it every day. Some of my properties are hunting camps and I always ask them if they want the pelt, most say yes....jk

Trapper Dahlgren-- Our creeks mostly have pairs on them however I had a location that I caught 12, one I caught 10, one I caught 8 and another 6.
The small channel I caught 12 I also found a dead one floating one day.

I know of some who will use the empty jar and lid for sets.

"How long are those stakes?" My rebar stakes are nine foot long. I have 11 gauge wire running from top to bottom for my CDR'S to slide down. Seems like I've had better luck using the wire compared to just running a piece of pipe down the rebar, but either way works I guess. Matt.
