Supposedly Jedediah Smith caught 668 beaver in 1825. I have to say I'm a doubter though. Bet he traded for some of those with the indians!

Apparently Savell kills everything in increments of 1000. He has the photos to prove it.

What good is a fur check, could have bought fur from the neighbor.

Pictures? Big deal, could have saved some critters from the days before.

It's circular. Either you trust someone or you don't.

Guys we all like to trap, we all have different reasons as to why we do it, but let's quite fighting amongst ourselves. Bigger battles to fight, I kind of blew up early and I appologize its not who I am, but I hate when I'm labeled when I've never been met by most, and that happens more and more as I grow as a trapper. Those who want to follow me on youtube and maybe be entertained, maybe learn something, maybe teach me something, I appreciate the support. As far as Larry goes I hope if you decide to trap this season you have a great season and catch whatever you decide your goal is. Now let's everybody please move on from this, and get ready for season..it'll be here before you know it!

I don’t think Jedidiah Smith caught 668 beaver in 1825 using 11 traps. That’s not counting the traps that he lost when the ice was forming going lower on the mountains. Ha ha ha. I would say he had 300 Indians shooting 2 beaver a piece for him that year. Ha ha. MD

Jedediah was a Christian trapper though...known as the "rocky mountain preacher". Never without his bible. A Christian wouldn't lie about their catch would they?

Have you ever set up a photo shoot for 100's of critters? That is a job in itself. Time wasted for no economic return, unless you are marketing a product. Unless you are going to sell some stuff off your reputation, not good policy to advertise your harvest. IMHO.

Not really if you take the pics while sizing/grading/bagging fur for auction.
Saving up a bunch of fur for a year end picture and missing auction deadlines to do it could actually cost you quite a bit of money.

LL, thank you for the pure entertainment. I have thoroughly enjoyed this discussion
