checked the small line with my daughters today and remembered to bring the camera. finally seems the weather broke. I picked up a blanket beav and the palest buck mink I have ever seen. other pics of the set and damage.any critique of set appreciated as I am new to trapping beaver. The blind set was made in a beaver run off of a medium sized creek. The mink was incidental in a bank den muskrat set. Mink was the smallest male I have ever seen.

Excellent catches, the beaver looks nice and with your pale mink you could be in luck. Light brown mink were in more demand this sale at Nafa then the dark and extra dark. Your daughter is your lucky charm. Good going the both of you. Instead of an Easter egg you got the Easter beav and mink :)

Guys, I caught a kit beav today. Was wondering what you experienced beav guys do with the kits? Send them in with the rest, home tan wall hanger? Thanks. I was surprised how small last springs kits still were.......

Kit beaver are not worth the effort to put up and send to auction. Home tan wall hanger seems like a better idea.

Home tan wallhangers, ebay or you can Dreadem up with willow hoop, feathers, bones etc. When we go that route we cant makem fast enough. Dream catchers are popular too.. And theyre the best eating.
