Maybe I've missed it on a previous post, but as far as tagging your traps goes, is it a law in Texas that you have to tag your traps?

Yes sir. Most of texas is private owned I think is the reason. Now I could be wrong if trap other places other than private. But I haven't heard of it

Picked me up some more traps this last weekend. 16 - #4 Montgomery's and 12 victor #3 long springs. I'm going to replace all the chains and swivels and get them cleaned up for dyeing and waxing.

Thanks Dale...Also got 3 wire and 2 adjustable coyote stretcher with the lot of traps.

Do you have any pics of a trap that you painted after a catch? Just wanting to see if any of the coating comes off with a catch or two. A few of the longsprings are pitted a little and I'm thinking that a coat of paint might be best for them.

I needed to get some boards ready for season and contacted FHA to send me some patterns that never arrived, so I then contacted NAFA and a few days later I had my new beaver pattern..

Here is a quick picture tutorial..

Two sheets of 3/4 plywood, cut into 32 inch pieces...

Cross section them so you can easily find the center of each board..now its time to trace, its time consuming and will take a while to get done..

I started with the outer most ring and traced every board, then with scissors' cut it off to the next level and repeat till you are complete.

Hey Yanta the one I went to had some venders. Also seminars on different trapping methods. They had a trap setting contest. An different games I didn't get to spend a lot of time there but enjoyed it. It was worth the time to me just to meet other trappers

YEAP!!! We were filming for the show all last week, shooting lead-ins and cut aways and several segments....

Everything is ready to roll out...

but I have a big dilemma...

season opens for beaver in 15 days, I"M 100 PERCENT sure they will not be prime yet..

Historically the first beaver trapped and sent in for the first NAFA auction bring better money than the good prime beaver in the second NAFA auction..

The grays and cats will bring decent money if they are finished out, if you sell them green(just skinned rolled up and frozen) you wont get much. You have more coons than you think

Coons will be a toss up this year as to what they will bring but will bring the most if you finish them out.


For what you will spend in equipment to remove the animals and personal time it is up to you..

The other option is to hire a trapper to come in for 3-4 days and trap them out for you.

Tuff I have a question and I think you might have answered in last years thread but I couldn't find it; nor an answer on the internet.

A friend of mine has 600 acres in Lockhart TX that we want to have trapped this year. Would prefer at the end/after deer season but aren't opposed to during it either.

How do we go about finding a trapper? Is a gov trapper better than a 'private'(?) trapper? Are there any trappers who will do it for free and take the skins as payment?

Thanks

Next Wed.....Is the start of commercial season for beaver only.

Anyone going to go out and test the water?

I plan on putting out about 6 sets on Wed. then pull them the very next morning, should have 3-4 beaver easy.

Thursday going to skin, flesh and put them on boards to see how the leather is looking as well as the guard hair and underfur is developing.

Depending on how they look will dictate on whether the following Monday we will go full tilt on them..

I have several people that are coming around this season to help out for a week..

One TBHer from down south is coming up for a week of trapline insanity, going to arrive at sun up on a Monday and finish on a Thursday evening, will be hitting it like major league. Another feller from way up north is thinking about the same set up..

I don't turn away help, lol..

Once Nov 1st gets here it will be nonstop work till next march.

Here is how a typical day in season goes:

Wake up at 0400 and run the land lines with the kids before school, skin out the morning catch and then hit the beaver and coon lines on the river, usually make it back to the house around 4 or 5 in the after noon and then skin animals till around 9 in the evening. Eat supper, grab a drink or two then head back out to finish out fur and get it on the stretchers and finish when we finish.

Repeat the next morning..

There are a few variances on Mondays and Thursdays, water lines are set on Monday morning and pulled back in on Thursday mornings..Land lines run non stop on different properties.

Work will settle down in November. Busy with food plots and the start of deer season right now, as well as a big party at the ranch in the middle of October. Maybe I can make it up there after that

I feel ya brother, water is getting hard to find around here every lake around is at 60% or less and all of them are down 20ft plus so it makes water trapping interesting..

The river is still moving enough to work on it..

I have a few beaver located close to the house so it wont be hard getting to them.

Hey Tuff, think you may need/want some help late Jan early Feb? I should be home by then and I've wanted to learn about trapping and what with the leave I have coming a few days or a week of Trapping Insanity should be feasible.
