Nice looking habitat in that riparian habitat you have close to where you live.
Sure would like to hear from some of the hunts with those dogs.

Hi KOSOI, to insert a video from YouTube, firstly hit share on the video and COPY TO CLIPBOARD. Then when you want to put video on here, hit the movie icon above and you will get options. Hit on youtube video. This will be displayed

[video:youtube][/video]

You then tap between the brackets, and paste the video in there like this

[video:youtube]https://youtu.be/FqxjDSLuLIk[/video ]

And that should be it

I don't think so, but I may be wrong. If you have google photo's, you can create a link to your video on there, and paste the link to here. People can then hit on link, and watch your video.

Great video's and pictures. I think you have the same marten and badger that we have here in Ireland. We are not allowed hunt either of them here.

That badger was close to the dog..wow

try not to have the beaver laying with the castor pointing down or the juice flow out when squished.
Looks like a successful float trip.

What price does the castor go for when sold over there?

My dog REALLY enjoyed your dog videos! He is still barking. My sleeping wife however is not a big fan of our dog right now. smile
I thoroughly enjoy seeing/reading about hunting and trapping in other countries. Thank you for posting.
In spite of our respective political leaders, we have very much in common, and knowing that makes me smile, and gives me hope for mankind.

Nice catches KOSOI. Do you sell the fur, and what kind if prices do you get for your beaver?

I imagine that taking the castor makes it profitable to trap beaver? Russian buyers must be paying pretty good...?

Does not make any sense to me........

According to the price in the catalog you posed the link to in the above post:

Bridger 330 Magnum in Russia is 1016 Rubles which converts to US $13.49

Bridger 330 Magnum in Minnesota Trapline Products (MTP) website in US is $21.75 (MTP manufactures the Bridger line of traps)

My only thought is that perhaps dollars are worth much more than what the official exchange rate is. This was the way things were with the Cuban peso when I was in Havana many years ago.

Bridger traps are manufactured in Taiwan, and there is a higher importation tax on steel that comes from there.
So if they are shipped to a USSR distribution place therefor cheaper in the long run without a 30% duty paid on the steel.

So those 3 beaver in the picture what would the castor weigh from them ?
0.9 to 1 kilo?

I asked Tim about this and this was his reply...

"Sergey is a dealer of ours in Russia. He made a large purchase a couple years ago when prices and freight were much cheaper than today. Looking at his website most of his inventory is gone showing 0 in stock. The Bridger traps went right from Taiwan to him and actually got there cheaper than having them shipped here. We shipped the MB traps and the various accessories dye, wax, lure, from here in a container."

from these three beavers, I took 580 grams of castor oil.
the size of castor oil depends on the habitat. I caught these three in one pond. according to my observations in ponds (in stagnant water), there is less castor. but in the river, where there is a current there is much larger. I donít know how to explain it yet.

Kosoi, I have observed the same thing for many years. Colony beaver that live with friendly other beavers have no need to mark their territory very much. But river beaver territory are often invaded by other beavers. These beaver spend more time marking their territory and tend to have larger castors. In lakes with colony beaver I average 7-8 beavers for one pound of dry castor. River beaver I average 4-5 beaver for one lb of castor.

This is a nice set of river castors taken a year or two ago.

If my understanding of the exchange rate with the ruble is correct you are getting about $175 USD for one lb of castor? Is that just dry castor as seen in the above picture or prepared castor?

Anyway, 60,000 rubles must make your very happy?! Yes?

Time to start selling the castoreum in Russia.
That is double what I get.

As Boco stated; that is nearly double what we are getting for our collections of semi-dry castoreum here. Great job!

Was wondering when I saw them laying down in the pond bank, we would never do that as it puts pressure on the sacs and juice comes out = liquid gold being pe-d away

Do you mind on explaining how yours is prepared to be sold.

After looking at google earth I can see why there is a few beaver with all the ox-bows along the river courses in your district.

I cook just like you. I hang it on a wire, turn it over for the first 3-4 days. then I dry for another 10-12 days. after that I put it in the freezer.

Kosoi, are castor prices going up now in Russia? Does the castor you sell go into the perfume trade or something else?

What the SKS don't sell for 39$ plus the box of 200 rounds anymore.
Any sign of the winters meat supply with your elk-Alces alces or North American moose ?

He is asking if you saw tracks or sign of your "elk". (Also, I think he is saying that maybe what you call "elk" we may call moose here)?

the price of castor has now stopped at around 30,000r = for 1kg. I think that the price will hardly rise. I use 65-70% for a medicinal tincture, which is now very well bought. and I sell the remaining 30% to the same manufacturers of medicinal tinctures

Floor ! There are a lot of indications for use. I had large surges in blood pressure. after I took two courses of tincture. I completely forgot about it. I can send links. They can be interested in reading them. I wonder why you havenít heard about it.

Interesting. Did some research and found this. "Castoreum has also been used to treat headaches, which makes sense given that it contains salicylic acid, the main ingredient in aspirin."

Does that mean, it would also be good for blood clots?

Those smoked beaver legs look very good. What are the spices on it?

What do you add to the beaver meat to make your kobaski? Do you smoke that also?

Paul ! I donate fresh beaver legs to the smoke shop. where they are salted and smoked. for everything I pay 65 r for 1kg. I donít know about spices.
cumin, coriander, pepper, garlic, basil and salt are added to the sausage. just fry on the grill.

Beaver meat should be soaked in water for 12 hours. Then separate from the bone. for 3 kg of beaver meat, you need to add 500 grams of lard (fat). Twist all this in a meat grinder on a large grate. Then add spices: 1.5 teaspoons of cumin, 1.5 teaspoons of coriander, 1.5 teaspoons of basil, 2 teaspoons of crushed black pepper, 100 grams of chopped garlic, 60 grams of salt. Then mix everything well. Leave in the refrigerator for 10-12 hours for minced meat to ripen. After stuffing into the shell (I use natural lamb intestine, 38 mm in diameter).

One forgets how much hair is on those hogs, till we see a picture like that one.

So the dressed out meat from that would yield 40 kg ?

At our farm my grandparent had a hair comb made with the stiff bristles from hogs, always remember the morning bush before out to do chores.

How old do you expect that animal to be ?

Nice Boar Kosoi.We do not have them here in North eastern Ontario.
They must use trails when the snow gets to be a Meter deep?
Have you tried snaring them?

Yes. wild boars now move only along paths, so itís easier for them. No, I didn't try to tame.

Congratulations on your boar ! We have them here too ! According to some of the biologists our have alot of Russian genes . We generally shoot them at night or hunt them with dogs in my area as they are a big pest and very destructive to the cattle grazing areas. How to you hunt them over there ? Whata your favorite rifle and bullet for them ?

It will be interesting to see the meat come back from the butchers from that hog.
In winter time her they move to the black spruce forest and eat the sphagnum moss well down below the ground till they have a 2 meter deep hole. What habitat do they move in the winter in your area Kosoi

The hogs that were around me for several years escaped from a farm raising them to ship to Germany for the restaurant trade. During the spring flood of 97 about 200 swam over the fences.and the zoo chase was on then. That group lasted at least 10 years in the wild. There are pockets still around. Some of the bear hunting baiting up north the clients just shoot hogs and pass-up the bears so they can keep at it.
Some family groups have lived inside round bails and never ventured out when -30c. To say the least the farmers are not pleased to find 30 bales all chewed up

I don't understand the question a little bit ?
The game that we harvest we cut up ourselves.
In winter, wild boars migrate to the swamps, where they feed on the roots of reeds.

Spring and fall they are in the marshes digging up the cattail tubers. At one spot they dug overnight a 10X 30 meter area and ate every tuber there. Fall storms cover the marsh and ice is sometimes 15cm thick over the cattails so food was limited access. One biologist tracked them 65 km after a morning snow fall one spring morning from wintering to summer spots, but they returned to the winter black spruce forest. He never did catch up to them or did he ever push them. With all the fences he had to go around he did travel 175 km so the 65 was when mapped out.
The province put some trackers on raised hogs and released them to mix with the wild. Took two days for them to meet and get going. The group did move great distances sometimes 50 km was nothing.

My misunderstand about the butchering.

We bring the animal to the hunting base, and there we carve the carcass ourselves.

That number of animals must do a lot of damage when they get into agricultural fields.
So are there 3-4 litters a year with 8 piglets ?
So of the southern guys do it for a living chasing hogs. GPS trackers on one and find where they are going for a little night time thermal shooting.
ps the one tracker that was used was put on the doorway at the DNR office, the seconds one was shot @ close range mmmmm poor sportsmanship at it's finest

nice viewing of the clips
sure shows the dexterity of them travelling in the trees
and read what your dog is smelling
many a raccoon hunter can say the same as when they take 10 out of a building , but the dog keeps on going back ! shocked

Just to bring this back to show what Kosoi has contributed to this forum

As you can see Jurrasic he has dogs and ruffed grouse or his Hazel grouse drum in the spring so it's a sound/ dog tracking exercises.
Hope you show some of your recent hunts birds taken Kosoi
