Nice job.

I have been trying to trick a smart old beaver for a week now and can't get him to play. Almost time for night vision scope.

Try the under water tray with foot holds in it. They will never know what hit them.

I am glad he did post to the old post. I got to see a post from Swamp after a long time not visiting the site. Sorry I missed your private message Swamp. I will try to check in more often to see what is going on.

Yep, It's me. Just been very busy. I volunteer to teach outdoor education classes, Hunter Safety, Trapper Safety, Bowhunter Safety, Crossbow Safety, and NRA Basic Pistol along with NRA Personal Protection In the Home. I gave an hour seminar on Skull Cleaning and Preserving at the last Trapping Rondeveous. Of Course, I hunted black bear pretty hard since August (no I didn't get one). Been Bow hunting a couple weeks and finally arrowed a small buck for the freezer on Saturday. Squeezing in some ADC trapping too. Got a trouble beaver out of way a few weeks ago. Would not go near any trap or change in the flowage. Caught him re-building the dam coming back from a bear hunt one night. Unfortunetly for him, I had my Glock 10mm with me. Still trying to get a turkey or two, not much luck there. Got a gun club meeting tonight after work. You know, come to think of it, it's been pretty slow lately...

The early fox and coyote season opens Oct 20. I may just pre bait for a week or so to let the fur prime up a bit. WAY too many yotes though, so probably I should just start hitting them hard. We'll see.

I hope things are going well with you and all is well with your family.

Well Dave, I do appreciate that you took out the two youngsters and got them started. Doing those types of things are critical to the future of trapping.
I hope you have a great year in VT on the line.
