You keep that training up Len and we'll get you down here as a beaver tie off consultant. I should have known you'd be ahead of the pack when it came to training.

Nice wire works guys, well watched the movie in full length. Never realized how agile in the air they are. Something to remember when making sets for them. Liking the faster internet here in Fairbanks.

Great video. Did you use lure of any kind, or rely on the bait alone?

Only for the first set AV. A skunk type lure, home made. Wolverine passed upwind of beaver and turned on a dime and straight lined to set. Could have been beaver meat but I think it was lure. But they worked the baits so hard I didn't use lure after that. I'm not the only trapper who participated and I know others used some lure as well. I believe meat will do the job sooner or later.
