Well the ice season ended rather abruptly! Dove right into the spring season as a result. Set on Sunday. Picked up 7 beaver in my first check of 26 sets out yesterday. Not too shabby!! Still haven't connected with a stinkin otter though...

i have had it with otter. I cant trap some areas with beaver because of the fear of trapping an otter. I have missed a few beaver in the last couple of days, but rats are still working out for me. only one trap out for them and am 1 for 1. hard not to set or carry a 110 with. but soon season will be close. maybe get lucky and get a mink before than. river beaver kicking my butt. don't seem to want to pattern nice for me.

Anybody else got any steel out yet? And yes, I know prices are low, so save the "why would you bother, junk prices, etc." lectures please.

Jesse, What was the average on rats? I'm assuming they were put up.

Also, any idea on what good, big, put up beaver were going for?

No offense to anyone that's sold, but these prices are terrible.

I have a large # of rats put up and I'm starting to clean the beavers out of the freezers. Rats might go back in the freezer but I have to dump the beavers when I finish putting them up.

H&H,

No, that was all green. The rats were going for about a buck more a piece if they were put up. And given the latest "Breaking News" on the China economy situation, I wouldn't hold your breath on any kind of significant rebound anytime in the near future. Very possible we'll be looking at these types of prices for the next couple seasons.

On a positive note, sure it nice to have the woods/streams/ponds to yourself!
