Just a comment on your castors. Looks like you have tied them off with wire. If you must tie them then just use a piece of thread or dental floss. For me I never tie them and teach students to remove them in attached pairs where no tying is needed.

Great job on the beavers. Was there any possibility you could have postponed trapping until at least mid October, or better yet November?

Heres another tip on your castors,peel off that red membrane with your fingers after you remove them from the beaver when they are still fresh. They will dry and grade better.

Very true clean castors are easier to grade. Sometimes if there is too much meat and stuff on the castors they can be graded as II's.

When I make the first cut at the castor it is made through that membrane. The rest of the removal is by peeling the castor out with my fingers. That way they come out very clean.

Castors are pretty easy,are you skinning those early beaver,and if so do you rough skin and then scrape or do you clean skin?
