Be heading up north again the next 2 weekends hopefully. Be going this upcoming weekend for sure. Just did the family camping thing this weekend so, its my time and some season prep the next 2. Plan on getting some more logs cut for my trappers cabin, peeling the ones I have cut already......and then some fishing to hopefully start making my oil and bait. Thinking of picking up some lumber and other supplies to start making some of my trap sets as well. Plan on making some mink/marten boxes as well as some bottom edge sets for mink/rats. Really hoping for a productive trip....so much to do yet :roll: :roll:
Will try and get some pics for you all....was having trouble with photo bucket but will try again. If not, I will have plenty of videos for sure....so you can check them out if you like.

You'd better get in "fast forward" motion if you're going to have the cabin in place before trapping season!!! :wink: :lol:

So went up to Maine this past weekend, but didnt get anything done for the cabin :x
I did however have a great time with a buddy doing some fishing and exploring. I found that if i am able to trap this other stretch of land....i could have a 30+ mile line!!!!!!!! Definately going to look into that!
