Bear Hunter's 2016/17 Season
« on: December 11, 2016, 07:54:53 PM »
    This is my 2nd season. Learned alot since my first set back in Dec. 2015. Sarted out good with 3 Beaver in one week. Pulled the traps because Elk season. Checked my spots today. Beaver moved in and fixed the dam. I set one in my hot spot. Then Devin and I went to my lucky spot. Placed one in there and one down the the creek. The last trap is a Kirk's design power guillotine door trap. Placed that on dam. It is a crazy looking one. Single door and the trigger is mounted at the bottom back of the trap horizontal. Works good if placed in the dam break with metal plate installed at the bottom. Then place wire door at the top. Water flows over the wire triggers and current and leafs don't set it off. Beaver swims in to patch the dam and slam the doors shut. At least I think thats what will happen. Lol  hear are the 3 I trapped 4 weeks ago. The pictures are in order. The last one was Devin taking a selfie with me soaked. Yes I know I need waders. Lol I'm still cold and its been 5 hours since I jumped in to set my traps. Well I will fill you in tomorrow after I check the traps. I think I am going to place 4 cat traps Wednesday and 1 or 2 ever other day. Going to try and get 15 to 20 cat traps out this season. I hope I can keep up the energy.

 :'( Should of just placed both traps side by side.  :bash:  I missed out on a beaver to today. Well I tried being smart and moved one of the trap. I placed it down from the dam. Bad move he came in and pulled all the guide, and dive sticks on the left side of the trap. Then fixed the dam is and he left a nice opening by the trap. Funny thing is most of the dive sticks by the trap are still there. Hmmmmm very smart beaver. I hope he is not the one I could'nt catch last season. He was pissing me off. Setting traps off and making them apart of the dam.  :dunno: So I moved the other trap back and forward of the other one to block the hole channel. The one trap acts like a guide to the one trap. Well will see if this works. I also place a trail cam to see if he is a old smart beaver. Lol
