Monday after work i went and set a foot hold on a well used beaver slide. When I went and checked it that morning, before work I had a really nice beaver in the trap. It was my first set and my first time trapping. I think that I got lucky, but never the less I didn't get skunked this year.
I don't think that I have ever been that excited. When I got down to where the set was I seen that the trap was gone and the chain was tight. When I pulled up the trap there was a beaver on the end in my drowner set.
I skinned it out that night and put it in the freezer till I can flesh it. I have heard that is a great time and it will take a while for a beaver. I'm hooked now on trapping.
