Don't know if any of you guys are incorporating floats into your beaver trapping agenda but I put one out in front of my house on Thursday and have caught a beaver in it every night so far. There is still too much ice on the lake to get to use my trapping boat yet so I am content to just watch this one trap from my window. It's the only float that I built but it produces at least a half dozen beaver for me every spring. Nice that it does not involve any travel on my part.
You can see last night's beaver partially floating just to the left of my old float.

I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!

I like that. Looks like something even I could make.

Best thing I ever did was make a few. Set them at roadside end of culverts for quick checks and easy hauling.

TD Any fresh mud on the banks or light brown poop on the bottom of the stream, or is the current too strong?

Just set a couple of days ago wearing regular rubber boots to know checking with hip boots with the rain we have had. Body grippers set in runs are now all under knee deep water. Huh!!!
