Quote of the day!!


Halfton and I set some beaver traps this morning.
While I was chopping through ice Russ said and I quote,
"If you fall through head first try and get turned around so your head is above water, then I'll help you get out."

I thought that was sound advice!!!

Also after we walked a mile we found a short cut we can use the quad to drive closer tomorrow.

Hope all your traps are full.
Mark

But wouldn't it be easier to pull you out by your feet?

Nit

If he went through I figured the ice couldn't hold him so there's no way it would hold me. ( pretty good size difference between us) I would gladly shove a branch out to him so he could grab a hold of it. For him to do that he'd have to go in, turn around and come back up for me. If he can't do that then he'd be on his own.

On another note. After I slipped and fell back down a couple small inclines, and after clawing and crawling back up I was wondering why I was even doing this. My legs are just not like they use to be.
This could get interesting.

Hey Russ Just get a tracking collar for him and set in the truck. If he quits moving or don't come back call 911 and show them what direction to head in. No use for both to be in danger. LOL. Looks like I might have to go get some problem beaver this week the way the weather is looking. Stay safe . Brad

I'm thinking more of a shock collar so I can slow him down. :)
The guy is killing me. Don't know why he keeps wanting an old overweight guy like me to trap with him?
I'm having a good time though'

We've got two now(50&40+/-lbs) since the ice has thawed out and they are able to move. Got them both with snares at a crawl out coming out of the creek up to the swamp. The first was coming out of the creek and I think Mark said the one today was heading down in to the creek. He will have to chime in.
Will be setting a few more tomorrow but will be pulling everything sunday. We have talked about coming back in a couple of weeks to try it again. Hopefully with open and stable water. We will probably decide tomorrow on what we are going to do. It's been a trip so far and could probably write a story.
