Today was a rather large day for us. With the add sets and two of us working them we did rather well, with 16 coons, 3 otter, 9 beaver, 4 rats, and 2 snapping turtles. We got home around 4 again today and started skinning. Finished up around 8 pm. Thank the Lord my mother is keeping my childern this week and she had us some supper cook, hot and ready to eat. We managed get some more sets out today on a duck lease. Here are some pics of the days catch with out the rats. We used them for cat bait today. I plan to post every night on this line as I was asked to do it on the last line and could not do it from the river. Nothing real funny happen today except Eric caught his thumb in a 280 killer trap at the first stop of the morning. He cried about that all day. I told him he should just paint the rest of his finger nails black then it would not show up as much. Heck of a thing, he ant got but 9 1/2 fingers to start with and here he goes trying to knock another 1/2 off. I just think he wants to have and whole odd number of fingers. I will say that half a finger comes in handy for him. He show you a day and a half using his hands, or even make change with his fingers. All though he had to quite umpireing, cause there is no such a thing a strike and a half. The coachs got smart and told him there batter still had another half a swing. Oh well enough about Eric handy cap, I did not tell ya'll that Eric wife came with us today. That women knows she can set traps and tot beaver. She even skinned her first beaver this evening. She got right in there with us at the cleaning table, she was getting the coons ready by ringing their feet, and then I would make the rips, pull back to the knee, then Eric would take the hide off and gut the them. We had LC washing and storing the coon meet. Worked out well, and we got though a lot fast than if just Eric and I were doing. I will say though, Carmen's beaver was the cleanest skinned one of the day. Well got to get some sleep, see ya'll tommorow.
