Gonna be hard to wing myself of the water line. Just have to play with the beaver more I guess:lol: Drove by a creek today and seen plenty of coon tracks. I wanted to throw 15 or 20 sets in, cause I know this is it until next year. The 110 conni's, in the truck, were calling my name. Oh well, I'll play with the fox and coyote till turkey season rolls around, but it sure is a bummer knowing I don't have any water traps to check and maintain:sad: Anyone else get a little depressed?

Frostbite,my biggest time of year is yet to come---SPRING BEAVER.
Our ice has been dangerous all season.Did get a few rats on the ice,but after breaking through so many time,decided not to push my luck.I will just have to wait another 2 1/2 months till ice out.Then it is a fast and furious 2 weeks.
I do get awful fidgety when I don't have traps to check.
Beaver will go a long ways in doing away with any withdrawl.
