I skinned and fleshed my first beaver tonight. Skinning was easy, fleshing sucks!!. Took me half hour to skin and about 4 beers to flesh also. What really sucks is that I was gonna save castor glands, and went to the house to check on supper and when i came back, my pair of cow dogs ate them. Guess I gotta catch another one!!

Yep, the fleshing was the toughest part of the job. I have the blue english knife which made fleshing coons alot easier but it was alot of work on the beaver. I found a tutorial on clean skinning beaver on youtube, I'll give that a shot next time.

On this day, 6 years ago, I caught my first ever beaver. And I shared it on WAT.

I see some members on here that no longer frequent and one who has sadly past. But, this was neat to see.

I enjoyed the old post from the past. Rick how many beaver have you caught since then?

I believe Harold was talking about the first get together we had here in Kansas. It was a great time.

We have also lost Fuzz. I see where he posted on this thread. I never got to meet him but seemed like a great guy.

I sent Fuzz (Garnet) some 1.5 long springs a few years ago. He sent me a really cool patch from his trappers organization he belonged to which is displayed in my fur shed. I never met him but did chat via email. He was a great guy.

I've caught a few since then. The beaver population isn't that great around here. There are tons of beaver in northern PA. We have a limit of 5 beaver per season in my area.
