Set one beaver trap yesterday. Duke #3 at a castor mound on the river. Had this one waiting this morning!! I had released two at this spot from muskrat traps in december...
17 1/2 lbs. Tomorrow we will see how my fleshing is on beavers, and tryout my new beaver boards!!

First put up and done in less than an hour!!! Also thanks to Fairchild#17 for politely pointing out how much board there is around this one!!!!

Good job Rob.
That's what they refer to as a "pillow" beaver in the industry. LOL
That river holds some big beavers though. Did you take notice of the chewed trees on Briar Creek behind Pa Aluminum? A man could probably snare a beaver or two below the train tressle where my Dad's land was.
