I also have seen some monster beaver while bowfishin this yearIf you was looking for beavers and rats........you could talk to the guys who bowfish....after all....they stare at them all night all summer under the lights......jus sayin, they might know of a few places. Who knows, they might even take you scouting for a few. I think using a bowfishing rig to scout would be a huge help.
I have seen some BRUISER beavers this year.

I havent found a fur buyer that will pay much. Not enough buyers to compete for furs. Your best money for fur will be paid at the BIG auction houses. Fur Harvesters Auction and North American Fur Harvesters have websites with auction results,recieving dates and even a fur pickup schedule but all fur must be finnished meaning scraped and dried. My closest buyer is 30 miles away and will only pay $5 for **** $8 for a huge one. You can double that at the auction house!I haven't done any trapping in about 20 years. The market dropprd out then and it was not worth the time put in for the money. What are current rates for ****, fox, yotes and rats.
