Around here the ice don't really ever get thick enough to walk on

So for us it's a boat with a mud motor or chest waders waking around in knee mud and chest deep water
my goal: do as much as I can, as fast as I can, for as long as I can, and at the end of the day if I'm not satisfied I will be to wore out to care

SWEEEEEEEEEET!
I cant believe you still do beavers like that, but they look beautiful :yoyo:
When I was tanning I fell in love with the beaver hoop and hog ring method, mannnn I could fly through those after a while.

What are you getting for rats? I was tellin Denver in another post my brother is averaging $10 a pop up here. Thats incredible and it's all thanks to the mink ranches failing across the nation. The furriers are substituting with muskrat.

i think they av. 8.00 at the may auction in Canada last year... i would like to see 10+ for my good rats

as far as the hoop and ringing beaver..boards and nails are faster for me
