I concluded my nemesis beaver is not a beaver but a gator. Pictured are two drowning rigs and as you can see one is missing its snap link and its trap. Based on game cam video one of these caught a coon and it drowned then a few hours later something came and rippled the water and took the coon and the trap and broke the snap link which is supposed to hold 240 lbs. It stole my trap!

I thought I just heard yesterday that a 240 won't break? That's a stout looking setup.

Dang. That's impressively depressing. Traps ain't cheap and rigs are time consuming. (It's why I gave up on snares altogether)


Or, You have, an aquatic assquatch!!


You are right. I'm out $40 on traps because of this assquatch and I just wish I'd caught it on the camera to see exactly what it is but I'm pretty sure its a gator. I'd like to see how big it is though. I still can't see how it broke the snap link like it did.

The 220 I caught him on earlier this week held as did the #4 leghold its just I had long lined it and it wrapped around the brush and pulled its feet out of them. What happened here was the thing either bit the snap link in two or pulled hard enough to break it. Now I have some sort of animal walking around in the swamp wearing my $20 trap like a bracelet. He'll be easy enough to id when I see him though. :lol2:

I did retaliate yesterday. I viewed this act as crossing the line I'd drawn in the mud and called in a few airstrikes to let it be known I will not tolerate such thievery. Here is one photo of the retribution. The water is still flowing good this morning so maybe they got the message.

I do but I've been making lure with them. I heard you can sell them but I don't know how to go about doing that. Any idea what they are paying for them?

The castor is sure worth more than the pelt. Lot of work in putting up a pelt.

That loin looks like a good start to some Canadian bacon.

turkey...My 1st time to try a JennieO pre-seasoned straight from freezer to oven bird.
Cooked fine and wasn't as dark on the outside as the picture shows but I was not crazy about the seasoning they used.
