well after 1 1/2 beaver seasons, i finally scored a nice beaver. caught it in a #3 bridger on a drowning set, with split aspen for bait.

now get skinning and then let us know how much you enjoy it
. Yes, let us know how the skinning and fleshing go! My first one took 4 hours and 3 beers. Congrats on you first beaver!

trapped him in a creek. it took me about an 45 min to skin, an hour to flesh. and an hour to pin up. some say i'm to picky, but the finished product looks real nice and will go on the wall. now time to make a hoop. i have fresh caster for next year, might tan the tail and make a couple pouches for the girls, all in all just pretty dang gratifying
