I just trapped a nice 50lb beaver in the wilds of Seattle. Great birthday present to myself. Love them urban beavers!

Seriously, you don't need to post offensive stuff and ruin a perfectly good post  about someone's success.

Bruce, I didn't mean to stir things up. I guess the old saying fits- A dirty mind is a joy forever or A dirty mind is a terrible thing to waste.  I guess I brought some joy to them.  Have a happy day all!

Congratulations!  Always like the urban trapping angle.  Take any pics of the set or the catch?

Hi,  I have some pictures and will figure a way to get them up soon.  The beaver was chewing the hell out of trees along a marina planting strip in Ballard(Lake Wash. Ship Canal)  I could not figure how it was getting up there. Cement bulkhead, cyclone fencing, gates? Maybe it stole a keycard ?  Anyway I hung a Hancock trap over the dock and suspended it in the water with some castor scent and two days later had the beaver. I was surprised by the size of it.  Usually I am trapping beavers in Lake Union by the houseboats or Lake Washington. I left another trap in just to make sure that was it. I pulled it this morning.  We will be watching the remaining trees for new damage and have wire wrapped the important trees remaining. That's the story for now.

Buddy got an 85# one last week in urban OR .   Crazy he said furs are like $20.  He gets like $350 for trapping problem ones in urban areas.
