Snow is not what im trying to clear but trees that come down across the trails from the heavy snow. That is the problem.

Hit the 65 mark today on beaver, things will slow down as ole man winter is here. So terrible is the heavy snow that most trails will consider major saw work to clear. Just another burden to the north trappers. Getting pains just thinking about it.

Looks like you still have some open water Wolf. Congrats on getting 65 beaver so far and best of luck on the land critters.

Wolf I am jealous of your trapping weather and your catches!! You are an awesome trapper and have some great trapping country. We were at 30.6C today makes trapping a distant thought.

Big lakes only have open water this time of year and even so some bays could have ice. Strict rule, take care of your puddles and small ponds and lakes first. then hit the big lakes as a last resort. Unfortunately lady luck was not with me this year. Shot my first deer of the season tonight with crossbow, back window of garage shot. Snow was heavy and when i went to look for it i had lost the blood trail and tracks. But got my dog out and he found it in 10 minutes, good ole bailey.

Going out tomorrow to set up for land critters where i can and the weekend. All this heavy snow has but destroyed any chance for most trappers up here to run a full line. For many will be a short season.

Back out today after 4 day soak.

Image
another cat. 330 was fired in cubby and mama lynx got the beaver meat. Probably a marten set it off dragging the bait out. Good thing to hang snares close to lynx box as i got the young one, maybe next trip out she will be there.

Image
wolves made short work on my fisher. but i set up the wolf set couple miles down. They must be hungry cause they are going into every set. They never bothered the marten, just the fisher.

Image
9 marten, 2 fox and 1 lynx plus fisher head.

First fur pick up on Monday, beaver bagged and ready to go. Just went through major snow storm and 10 inches of snow in one day. Since then we have had 4 more inches. Tracks on bike and will head out tomorrow to start checking what i can. Will be a tough go and probably a week or so to check all sets and pull some.
