Christmas Pt. 2 ~ A first for Everything

This year was the first time Lucas or I had ever gone out and checked beaver traps! We took the snowmobiles and found that we had two beavers out of our three traps! They're funny little guys. They were about 50lbs each! Good catch!

So, why do you catch the beavers?

Erin, they are food for martens. We are trapping martens (to pay for a new TV), which are used for gloves, coats etc... Also beavers are very destructive. But we're done for the year. We only needed a couple. When we get our next marten I'll take a picture of it so I can post it.
