    Just trying to keep some conversation going on the trapping side here .... has been pretty slow .... I mean SLOW line my trapping line too .....

    The last couple of days have been pretty slow, but did manage to catch another mink and rat yesterday and a rat and another small beaver today.

    I am working really hard on a couple of really big old beaver but so far they have outwitted me ... but not giving up ....

    TOTALS TO DATE:

    Coon: 34

    Rats: 49

    Mink: 11

    Possums: 3

    Beaver: 3

    TOTAL ANUMALS: 100

    Not really impressive ... but not too bad for an "Old Fart".

    Keep laying steel and skinning the results ........

    Nothin for a couple of weeks now.
    Gotta do some prospectin before next season.
    Been pullin some that are not producing and are a pain to check.
    Picked up 3 farms to trap though.
    Been wantin to try my luck on coyotes and fox but don't want to go too far to do it.

    have a good one

    You ain't doing too shabby Garry. I just wish fur was worth more but like you've said the exercise and just gettin out is worth alot in itself. Keep us posted, i've enjoyed readin your reports and seein the pics.jf
