The weather is real bad here today-First blizzard of the season.
figured i would go check a couple traps I have out for beaver.
Pulled up to check and noticed a lg beaver with its guts opened and one back leg eaten.I will salvage the hide and tan it-enough there for a hat.

Then A lynx jumped up out of the grass and ran by me.
I grabbed the chiappa and plugged him with the 22 mag.

Nicely furred pale cat,heavy grotzen-York Factory section cat.

Total white out conditions here now-the predators will be out in full force hunting tonight.

No doubt he has a stomach full,he's hanging in the skinning shed right now.
I will let him stiffen up and skin him tomorrow.

Would have been more impressive had you fast drawn a six gun and then blew smoke off the barrel after the shot. grin

Lucky on the timing to catch him in the act.
i would have had a real good chance of catching him if I dropped a #3 beside the half eaten beaver.
Cats always come back to a big bait/cache like that.

Yes, one well placed shot will do the trick, but we're going for the cool factor here, Boco!
How much snow are you supposed to get?

Good one Boco. Got to be right up there with top surprises on the trapline. Had surprise similar one time but not so good as urs I don't think. Was going back about 15 miles in the country from here on skidoo and realized, for safety purposes, forgot to tell oldest boy where I was gone for the day. About 4 miles out stopped right on the edge of cell range to make the text and before could get cell phone out of pocket noticed a lynx sitting up, on the edge of the trail, about 40' away. Head shot and a good way to start the day. Would have blown right past and never have seen it if had not stopped at that exact time and place.
