First beaver
« on: December 29, 2018, 06:18:05 PM »
Hey Guys, havenít been on here long but I thought I would share my first beaver.  Been working my tail off trying to find some good areas around me, and it finally paid off.  Good chance at otter at this set as well so fingers crossed.

 Awesome! Get that skinned carcass out with a cam on it!
In your hearts enthrone Him; there let Him subdue
All that is not holy, all that is not true
Crown Him as your Captain, in temptations hour
Let His will enthrall you, in it's light and power

Nice! Put a tape measure on that tail and see if you are on the scoreboard!
