Got a couple jobs for friends, caught 2...nothing but an aggravation! I did start a new pond today though, fingers crossed!

Water is down in the dams here too. Snow is gone so unless we get lots of rain they will stay low unless they are on bigger streams.

First time with spring beaver in my zone. Caught two males yesterday both so bit up I couldn't believe it. Probably 15 bites and slashes on each one. Pulling sets tomorrow. Fur still good but hides are terrible with that much damage. Seeing as these hides are for my personal use I'm done till fall. I had a good season

Caught a huge female and very large male out of 2 snares set on one creek yesterday. This is the 3rd section of this 1.5 mile creek I have removed beaver this season. 1 section yielded 8, the next 6 and now the 2 at the very western end. Rained pretty good yesterday and more in the forecast. I am ALMOST caught up with 7 days left.

Maybe I should clarify my response. This creek flows from a small lake, that is where the 8 came from. The next 6 came from section of the creek 1/2 mile down where a retention pond drains in. The the two I caught yesterday originally were from across the road in another creek but were dredged out earlier. Their dam on this creek was removed a couple weeks ago but they stayed, they had plenty of water and trees.

Spring was always my favorite time of year to trap beaver.


Some mornings I wake up grouchy. Some mornings I let her sleep.

I am trying it for the first time ever. Have caught 5 so far, 1 good sized(47#) male and then 4 yearlings(15-19#). I wouldn’t know what to do with 4-5 at a time!! The smaller ones are much easier to process!

Got my first nuisance job of the year on Friday. Actually had another call, but he wanted me to do it for free.
