Are those beavers even close to prime yet? Or are you just after them for pest control?

Great job on the coyote and fox. They are not easy to catch.

The beaver's up here seem to be pretty good, i skin and strech the fox and coyote, and there is just a tinge of blue left in tthem, so i'd say from now thru Mid december is the time to get them before they get rubbed, Wish i had another week of trapping before deer hunting, kinda spoils it, but hope to get out after that for spme otters, beaver, and if its nice enough some more fox traps.

Nice pics, you boys are getting after it pretty early. I am suprised they are that prime already. WHen I was down there fox would not prime up real well until early December. Up here it is the last week in November for fox. What were the beaver like?

I got those within 10 miles of my home. I am not sure what you are refering to as in setting up the traps. I used a dirthole for the fox and another variation of it for the coyote. I did get another fox earlier, but didn't have the camera, tommorow is the last day until after deer hunting, hope to have a pic for ya.

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
