My youngest finally came with.  I pulled all my traps for the season and it was nice to have help carrying stuff.  On the last set of traps we had 2 nice  big beaver.  I took the 50 pounder and he grabbed the 40 pounder.  After the 400 yard walk back to the truck he swore the beaver was a 100 pounder.  Had 1 sprung trap where the beaver got through.  He didnt get so lucky on the 2nd trap.  I set the triggers all the way to one side so the otter can get through ( season is closed).  I get a lot more suitcases beaver and fewer neck catches.  It's a trade off I'm willing to make.  I saved 15 pounds of beaver meat and plan on having jerky sticks made.

It was a good time.  They grow up so fast.   Hard to believe he is already 19.

He looks like a big boy. He could have been hauling beaver for Dad for a few years by now!   :happy1:

I try not to force them into everything.   He loves deer hunting and has had the privilege to drag my deer.  Young strong backs are awsome.
