My friend, JK Young, filmed this short video a couple of years ago. We had a discussion about eating beaver meat and Jeff thought it would make for an entertaining short film. Beaver season was still in full swing, but all the other trapping seasons had come to a close in Pennsylvania. I hung my traps up for the season, but then we decided to make 4 sets along a local creek. The traps were out for one night before we made a catch on a small beaver. All four sets were mock castor mounds. I used #4 coilsprings rigged up to a drowning cable.
After the beaver was skinned, fleshed, and boarded, we brought the meat to Ellen so she could work her culinary magic.
Thanks for watching!
PS: Don't mind the liquor boxes scattered around. We were in the process of moving :)
