    Eric and I pulled the 7 day line today. We took 98 beaver, 90 coons, 6 otter, 4 cats and I don't know how many nutria rats. On Monday when it got down to 30* we had a line high of 32 coons and 21 beaver. We have pics, some where. We don't have have a total pic, as we still have to put it up. We started at 05:00 most every morning and finished skinning at 11:00-12:00 a couple of nights. I am wore out and ready to get some sleep now. That was the hardest 7 days I have every had on a line. I am hurting.

    Great job Bro! We pulled ours for this week due to deer gun week. I wanted to deer hunt and I did not want to tick off any of the nice farmers who let us trap by spooking their deer if they might be hunting. Plus the temps have been so warm things have slowed a bit. We'll get at it again next week.

    Michael, congratulations! I have a question. Do you eat the beaver? If not your missing out on a great meal. I wish i had some to cook up, because i love it!! Makes some good jerky too! Heck, if there was a way i could get some i would, but most of the beavers around here are gone or the land is leased and they won't let you on it without joining the club! My traps and snares are rustying away!

    Good question Kevin. a trapline is simply a term used to define where your traps are set at in essence if you set your traps along a creek or a farm road it is sort of a 'line' hope this helps ya
