Default My First Beaver!!!!!!!!!!!





Had a neighbor call the other day and asked if we could get rid of his beaver problem at his pond. Dad and I went down there and he made his set at a dock. I make mine at a slide (Dad wont let me handle the 330's yet so he put the trap where I told him.) that had fresh tracks. Checked them tonight and I had this one in mine. Since it is my first beaver and he only weighed in at 20lbs I'm going to have a friend help me stretch and tan it on a wood ring and hang it in my room.
