Time to pound some beaver
« on: November 30, 2019, 02:44:50 PM »
I set 12 traps yesterday on what I think are 3 different colonies that are close to each other. They have kept the water open.  I will check traps tomorrow morning.  I would have loved to use snares but couldn't due to the thin or no ice.

While I was taking pictures I noticed a doe and fawn running across the swamp.  When the got to the middle the dos broke through and the fawn followed her in.  It took ths doe about a minute to get out.  I was sure the fawn had no chance but after 2 minutes of struggling the fawn got out as well.  They both made it to shore thankfully.

80 pounds is by far the biggest.  Previous was a 67# pregnant beaver caught in may.  The 80 was a week ago and it wasn't pregnant yet.

It's a 50 pounder next to the sled.
