Trying to get some spring beavers but the water is not cooperating. Either up or down or frozen.

Same here, weather is not cooperating, but still managing to get some beaver. Still no otter, going to have to rethink my strategy. Seeing lots of otter sign after a snow, but they always seem to be using a different route. Had a good time at your fur handling clinic Jordan. Wish I had some stuff like that in disctrict 1 to go to.

Nice pictures WIKA. I'm glad you enjoyed the fur handling and I hope you learned something. I think we will have to do it again next year.

Way to stick with it and great catch. Really love those bottom edge sets.

Well the central zone beaver season ended today so I picked up the few traps I had out the past couple of weeks. I wanted to catch maybe half a dozen Beaver to sell with my two otter pelts. I ended up catching another dozen beaver and a few more muskrats. At 73 years old I am starting to run out of steam earlier than normal. I might still do some damage control Beaver trapping at a couple spots yet. I have around 200 muskrat pelts in the freezer that still need to be stretched and dried and will try to get them done to sell with the beaver and Otter. My mink pelts are staying in the freezer and will be there until prices come up on mink. Overall it has been a fair season other than the weather conditions good luck and tight chains.

I pulled my few beaver traps yesterday since the weather didn't look too nice today which is the final day of the season for our area. I ended up taking 14 beaver and 1 otter. The smallest I had was a large medium and the other 13 were large medium to super blanket. Was a lot of fun but certainly plenty of work which is always the case with beaver. Hope you all had a great season and good luck to our northern trappers who still have another month.


55 years trapping. It's who I am. Every day is still as exciting as it was when I was a kid but a little more work.

Good job Lance. Are you still clean skinning your beaver like your dad did or do you use the beam. I sell most of my green Frozen now as working the beaver on a beam is too hard on my shoulders. I put my two otter up and that was enough for a day.

Thanks Walt. I clean skinned all these just for old times sake. Reminded me of sitting in the basement as a kid and watching my dad clean skin beaver for hours. I spent most of my time strainghtening out bent nails, lol. I do remember my sister and I trying to help dad out by clean skinning a smaller beaver when he was working the day ship at Uniroyal. It looked so easy but after we had cut about 10 holes in it we quit. My mother must have talked to him because we didn't get chewed out which we were both expecting. It was a fun season and my wife went with me every day but the first check. After all these years, she's still likes to go along if the weather is nice.
