Beaver Camp 2007
The 10th Annual Spring Beaver Trapping Trip took place the
weekend of March 30-April 1st.
It was located on a wonderful spot along the Sun River. The owner was
gracious enough to allow us to have our camp at his hunting property.
We spotted much fresh beaver and coon sign. The area is secluded and right
on the Sun River with Adobe Creek and another irrigation ditch running through
The emphasis of this camp was of course -beaver trapping. We trapped
with only historical methods.
Karl was our top trapper at the 10 Annual Spring Beaver Trapping
Camp. Karl's river set for beaver ended up taking 3 beaver!! Way to go Karl.
Karl's Adobe creek set ended up taking 1 muskrat and 1 raccoon.
My sets took 1 coon, 1 rat and 1 large buck mink.
Walt's set was sprung once with some beaver belly fur in it but ended up
taking a raccoon.
Melvin's muskrat set caught 2 rats in as many nights.
Thats what it was all about! Some good trapping and no one got killed by
Way to go Walt and Karl for having going into the cold
Sun River in their mocs up to their knees and setting beaver traps the old
fashion way!! The weather went from a low of 0 (zero) degrees
(frozen-in traps) to highs in the forties. All traps were set the old fashion
way-taking the plunge up to your gonads. Walt showed all the young guys that he
is the toughest hombre in our party once again!
