Foxtail - "Even if that beav was caught here or in NS, it would be completely worthless. Southern fur and as small as a muskrat, less than worthless."
Actually that little beaver was a Wisconsin beaver. We generally have two types here. The ones they imported from Wisconsin and those they got from Alabama. You can tell the WI beavers because they still make feed piles outside their lodges/dens, and they still have that nice WI fur. This place has a nice feed pile. Its on the downstream side of the company road. You have to look closely to see it, and its easy to mistake for the dam in the pic. The dam where I caught the little bugger is about 50 yards downsream from the company road.
