Day 1 & 2
Well, i've done ADC pretty well all summer on one of Manitoba's most populated fur bearers, the beaver. And now that the colder weather and shorter days have come around the fur has primed up quite nicely. I got a call the other night from the RM (Rural Municipality (Same as a County) asking me to go and remove some beavers that had established a run across the road and we're knocking all the rock in to the swamp. So when I went to check it out and set traps here's what I found.
As you can see here, the beaver are pulling all the rock and gravel off the road as they cross over. Near the top of the photo you can see deeper, darker water.
Other side, with the run heading back to the lodge which is shown below.
But there's the lodge (above) with a muskrat house to it's left.
So I set the traps up that night, just a couple simple dive sets in the channels. Went back to check the following night and had 2 beavers in the sets.
