That’s some nice summer weather you’re having up there Boco. I could get into some 55° weather down here in southeast PA right about now.

What do you do with all those warm season beaver?


Eh...wot?

Take the castors,and give some carcasses to a guy who has dogs.He gives me free minnows for fishing.
The rest go to my trapline for feed.

The hatter market for beaver jumped way up at FHA, percentage wise.

With that thread headline I figured FHA already had taken care of you for the latest sale since they love you so much.

The way the hatter market is shaping up those pelts should be put up and sold.

Summer beaver have no underfur-no good for the hatter market.
For felt they need underfur.

Trapline for feed. Seems I've read that before from you or another Canadian. How far from home do you have to go to get to the trapline? Isn't much of your line inaccessible in summer? What species are you hoping to feed?

First and foremost,when you operate in bear country all the time,you are asking for trouble by leaving carcasses in close proximity to where you are working.Not only can it be dangerouse to spook a bear in the evening but you will lose traps and beaver once they get into one.
I trap on 3 traplines,parts of them are very remote,one line is close to town,and one of the remote lines is big enough to touch on some logging roads.When I am doing nuisance work up north on the logging roads I take the carcasses to a few strategic points on the line.When I am doing nuisance work for hydro,or local roads boards,highway dept,municipalities etc I have a couple places on my close trapline for those.The close line is a very good lynx line.The cats love the beaver and its easy to tell when they find them as they drag them a short distance and cover them with duff.
I feed all animals in the foodchain including the small mammals.
Although it is most important to maintain bait stations in late winter especially for marten it is good management to return feed to the foodchain at any time of the year..
At this time of year bears wolves take most,as well as lots of birds.feeding.Microtines benefit also.

Nice catch! Looks like you need a four wheel drive, in that area.

That and crossovers are the first plan of attack.
Later on the dam break set mops up the stragglers 99% of the time.

4 wheel drive truck will get to 90% of the nuisance spots,the atv gets to the rest.The logging roads are pretty solid even under 3 feet of water,just got to watch out for big holes in the road from beaver tunnelling.The worst ones can swallow the front end.

Good money in the off season for trappers.

For me..it’s my best Nuisance season so far ….28 beavers …6-7 different locations….90.00 per head ..90.00 set up ….65 cents per mile…Or do it yourself.
