    Got a bunch of $5 coon to flesh yet here. If your knife needs exercised. I'm afraid even if we split the profit on them we'd both end up in the hole:)
    Hard to get motivated to work on them with prices the way they are but I don't want to hold them that ain't worth it either.
    Hate this time of year. Thawing fur to finish put up means the catching is slowing down and eventually I won't have an excuse to disappear into the fur shed

    X2. Hoping to get some traction for the last two weeks, but man, nothing's happening for me. 1 weasel and one grinner. And the weasel didn't even turn white yet! Idk, maybe the ones I have around here don't?

    Hey 574, could you take a few photos of your mink water ?

    Put in a few mink and ermine boxes. Was planning to under ice some rats and on ice footholds for yotes but the swamp had 3/8 " of ice and a air pocket under it. Might still set the field edges if I get more motivated.

    Thanks but I'll pass on the coon, I really don't like fleshing them. Since things are so slow, I will spend some time with the chainsaw

    First beaver today in almost 3 weeks. Ice has been too sketchy for under ice snares. Total 7 beaver and 1 rat on the year.
