I guess beavers are common East of 45? We had two stop in here for a minute a long time ago then they were gone never seen another one. Have you ever tried to eat one or are you not as adventurous with your food as Jo?


No I have not knowingly ingested any aquatic rodents, tho I may have when I was in the Philippines or SE Asia. The ones I have killed here, either sunk when I shot them and didn't come up for a day or 2 or were in the connibear & dead too long for me to consider doing anything with. Gave one to a neighbor because he wanted to try to preserve the hide. They stink bad enough freshly killed, I really hate messing with them after they've been dead very long. Smell worse than a 5 day dead calf.

Shut your mouth. I was just getting a nibble. Besides, my beavers are more organicker than yours are I'm sure. And they are gluten free. :lol2:

Thanks. Haven't seen one like that. Of course that's not saying much because its all relatively new to me.

That's a bent washer lock, works just like a lock on a drowning rig.

Years ago my trapping partner made some extra long snares for an experiment that didn't work out. So the follow year we were trapping muskrats in the irrigation water waste ways in the Columbia basin. Coyotes had paths beat down along both sides of the drains. We set these 16-20 foot long snares where the trails went under fences. The soil is almost pure sand so tracks showed up real well. A coyote would get in a snare and go out to the end of the cable. When they hit the end they would turn and run back the other way. They would be going pretty fast when they hit the end 32-40 feet later. And they would be laying there dead as a door nail. No struggle at all.
