    Well, been awhile since anyone posted any pictures. this was my first full year trapping so I will put some pictures down.

    Here was the first catch of the year, bear trapping starts two months before regular season. this is from a snare I put in with my oldest son who was old enough to start this year.

    All said and done, I had 26 beaver (14 the last 10 days of april), 17 rats (trapped for a week), 3 otter, 2 raccon, 1 coyote, and one bear. Hopefully I will get more time to get serious some time. 100 beaver is very doable up here!!! and 300 rats is not unheard off. Hope you enjoy the pictures, God Bless.
