Slow Spring

Went out to the trapline today to check conditions for Spring Beaver trapping , but the creeks have barely started opening up yet, and there is still around 2-3 feet of compacted snow on the roads. Found the remains of 3 different Wolf kills. Two Moose and one Elk, I was fortunate enough to recover the Elk skull and rack. Its really unfortunate for the Elk they just started coming into this area about seven years ago, so the wildlife biologists opened up a hunting season for them, and so many Wolves with so much snow, they barely stand a chance.

  1. Tough way to make a living. I've done a bit of trapping as a hobby, and most folks don't know how much work it is. At least it's outdoors!
