Very good photo, of a Green winged teal, the white in front separates it from the Common teal of Europe. Late migrant still going to Churchill to nest this season.

So we got a lot of rain this afternoon and I was going to go set up some beaver traps for a farmer but this rain and I got two teeth pulled today so on the weekend I plan to trap on the weekend I'll probably bring a 22. My grandpa is really excited about it hopefully it doesn't rain on the weekend

I was thinking of making a break in the dam and putting a 330 in the break does anyone have any pics of this set or any experience with it.

you might have a hard time with that set..
lots of plugged traps with sticks
then you have a smart beaver to trap after.. and that sucks
i would to a runway set out of the lodge underwater

see the only problem I have is I don't have hip or chest waders so I will probably set at a beaver slide if I can find one.

Your right Alaska Viking cause when fall time comes around and I don't have hip boots I will be very disapionted cause I will have spent all my money before that

I was hearing from my neighbor that the highway department has a beaver bounty 50 dollars each me and my auncle will trap and shoot them split the money and I'll have money for hip waders in no time

heres what I mean by we got a little rain
there was this whirlpool at a culvert

Ok so the other day me my dad and My grandpa went out and looked for some beaver and found some it was a bugger getting there as usaul


and once I was in the bush I realized I forgot the trap seters so I walked back got them I had cable in my pocket, a 330 on my shoulder, trap setters in one hand and I was walking along the dam trying not to fall in the water. so once I found were I was going to set a trap I dropped everything and reached into my pocket my cable was gone so I went along the dam found it luckily

So I set my trap on a 330 like this

I found another great place to set up a trap in between two fallen trees

so I went through all that trouble just for some beavers.
but I should make a few farmers happy.

Hope you are practicing skinning and fleshing, and at least getting the castor off them.
Looks like the mail should be moving by Tuesday, so you might get your NAFA cheque by Wed.
Got any waders yet ?

Are these the nuisance beaver that you are being paid $50 each for. Is that a castor set with the 330? If so what I find works well is to bend the triggers to a T and set so the triggers are on the bottom below the water level. Hope you have some good luck so you can buy those new waders. Let us know how you make out. smile

Well I got a call the other day from one of my nieghbors and he said he has had some problems with beavers along one of his little creeks for example here is a picture of this rapid river its only about three to four feet wide in areas


so I set a 330 on one of there slides I followed there trail way into the middle of willow patch and there only cutting stuff down in the middle why? I have no idea maybe you guys would know.
when I got there I had caught a beaver.


But what I cant understand is why they are so active this time of year. All the other beaver ponds I have been to there's no activity they rebuild there dams over summer with mud but don't come on to land Why is this?
