Post Interior Alaska spring time beaver trapping
I was able to get out to do some spring time beaver trapping! After dropping the kids off at school I drive out of town, over the mountains still covered with snow to a remote river choked with beaver. Unfortunately, my trip was cut short by a rookie mistake. Fair warning, there is some coarse language. Given the circumstances I believe it was warranted.

Sorry, I couldn't figure how to embed the thing.

This was hilarious. You might want to change your assumptions about water levels and snow melt. lol

Yeah, just because certain things are normal doesn't mean that's what will happen.

Curious what handgun you packing--not long ago it seemed all Alaskans carried .44's but some now switching to 10mms?

Glock model 20, 10mm. 44 is a good gun, if I had a 4 inch model I’d carry it. Sometimes I carry a 357.

Me too! I don't get to duck hunt as much as I'd like, the rate of return isn't what it is moose hunting.
