I really enjoy everything about trapping, well maybe not falling through the ice and freezing my tail off.
One of the most exciting things for me is to chop a hole through the ice and checking my beaver traps. I love reaching down in that freezing water and feeling for the spring of a 330 to see if its been set off and man does the heart start to pound when it has. Then the work begins, chopping the stakes out of the ice and pulling that beaver up out of the water. That's fun.
Beaver have to be one of the toughest animals to skin.
Also seeing a Ol' trap shy fox or coyote in your trap and seeing the look on their face.......
Muskrat back floating in the water while in the trap and that fur shining in the sun.
