Looks like fun! Geese are coming back, but it might be a few days/weeks before the river breaks here.

Well I did a float trip that I had been wanting to do for some time. Not as productive as I had hoped but it was still an adventure smile

Gotta have a supportive spouse that is willing to drop you off early in the morning and run 20 miles to pick you up smile She actually figured out to to back a trailer up this time around smile

Took this young stud along with me, showed him some new country and I think he had a good time smile

We had some pretty good weather on this trip. Today there were hundreds of geese flying north.

Found this big boy laying along the bank. Always hate seeing dead moose after break up.

We ran all coni's on this run. The first section of river we hit there was alot of old sign but nothing produced. I think they either got trapped out or froze out. From the look of things along the river ice out did a pretty good number on the banks. We ended up catching 11, no toads all young ones.

Got one more run I want to make if I can convince my buddy to go smile Be safe out there!

Nice work on the beaver! Now for the skinning. I am curious. Why do you float rather than boat? Sometimes I just want to go for a canoe ride rather than motor around.

Keep us posted on the trapping and bear baiting.

bfisch, the river I ran is small and skinny. You can run it with a jet when the water is high, but when it is low your not making it. With a canoe I can go from one landing to another approx 42 river miles. The big rivers boat only smile and right now I am waiting on a part for my motor, the recoil spring broke. In the past me and a buddy would run hard and stack up the beaver, 40 plus on a three day run.

Good for you! That is more beaver than I would want to put up (the 40 or the 11).

Hahaha smile The guy I deal with only wants them fleshed out, saves me from boarding them smile He takes them and drops them right into his tanning solution.
