| Outdoor Board|| re: What outdoor related thing do you hate to clean? - smoked hog on 3/31/14 at 2:55 pm|
Hate to clean tree rats, if my Father in Law didn't love them I wouldn't shoot another one.
Equipment is a tie between a huge pile of traps and my fur processing equipment. By the end of the year my fleshing beam has enough embedded beaver fat that I'm pretty sure it will be waterproof for the ne...

Don't forget the specific heat of water plays a role. Areas with more water are less likely to see wide temp fluctuations. Slow to heat and slow to cool....
| Outdoor Board|| re: Whose man enough to admit they own a crossbow? - smoked hog on 3/25/14 at 2:17 pm|
With the exception of a few very high end crossbows the max range is around 50-60 yards. Most should be shot 40 and in. Same range as any compound and probably more accurate with a compound at long distances.
I used one to get started into archery when my son was smaller and I didn't trust him n...

Know how you feel. I got one from my grandmother when I was 21. Had been my grandpa's and she had been holding on to it for me. I think of him every time I shoot it....

In my yard or somewhere my kid/pets will be and the venomous ones die. Non venomous and I'm leaving them so he can learn to catch them. Cotton mouths rate with mosquitoes and possums. Death whenever found....

His right side is easily his strong side. Much better g4 and a kicker on his g2. Should I have him turning toward the left, so the right is more prominent or do I have that backwards. Actually pretty stupid on this stuff. Didn't even think to score him. Just got back into deer hunting a couple year...

Ok so I've never actually done a shoulder mount before. Never had one I cared enough to spend the money. I know the deer is very narrow but I like its mass and height. I will not be in this house much longer so I'm looking probably at a more straight forward mount or one with only minor turn. Any s...

I still have 1 yote, 6 coon, 4 beaver and 3 more rats to get hung up but I thought I would share whats going to the next sale. Already sent 37 pelts to the last one. 4 beaver in the back on the freezer are being sold to s...

Well I guess I spoke to soon. He is measuring right at 50.5 inches to the base of the tail right now. We will see how he does once he get on a board.

I'm just now selling some of my fur at auction so I won't know how I've done so far until Sunday. I know I've gotten an average of 27 for my greys and 12.57 for my rats so far. Really kicking myself for not getting any yotes sent to this auction.
I'm not sure how much I'll be able to do with pred...

I know of a few guys who have caught a few 70+ beavers but that one was my largest. I have had several in the 60-65 range.
As far as table fare they are pretty good. I have some acquaintances that prefer it to venison. I don't eat many simply because I run a three day check most of the time and I...

If you don't want to buy the set tool at least look up using a rope to set. Much easier than by hand. Its not a strength thing to set by hand, its technique but not worth learning unless your planning on doing a lot of it.
As far as luring a beaver, look for something called backbreaker made by...

A private business should be able to refuse service to anyone for any reason. If it is a state sponsored service they must follow anti-descrimination practices. I have no problem with that.
If a resteraunt owner finds a bunch of drunks repulsive they have the right to refuse service. If you are ...

330 conibears. Beaver are easy, especially ones that haven't been trapped in a while. Google a castor mound set and be done with it. Not uncommon to have a 50% catch rate every day at first. Cleared multiple colonies in the first 2 checks before....

I had a good year, until duck season started. Managed to get my largest buck to date, getting him with a bow only made it sweeter. Managed to pass on a couple of 120 class 2.5 year 8 pts that I will be looking for next year. Put another doe in the freezer. Knowing I'm becoming a better hunter each y...
