Been recovering from a broken leg (fibula) and messed up ankle and haven't been able to get out trapping until recently, mainly just along the river for marten, and haven't caught much.
Was upriver yesterday pulling what traps I had set (heading into Board of Game meeting next week, and season ends the 28th).
Caught this mink in a marten set. A lot of mink around in places, guess I'll tan this one up with the others:
Was a beauty of a day too, clear and +15. Part of the trapline trail goes up a sidecreek, and I mushed a bit beyond the last trap. Check out beyond the team here:
Here's a closer look, never seen overflow quite mound up like this before. We turned around here, no way I was gonna try to negotiate the humpy overflow:
