    Those rats you could prob go check a few hours after you set them and might have some.

    @Justin probably! It it was closer to home, I definitely would. I'm not so sure there isn't a beaver out here also. Set one beaver trap today just to see what happens.

    @Jon I stay busy with it enough to where it could be a part time job, that's for sure!

    @Justin I found two bank den holes close to eachother that seemed pretty big for a muskrat and there is what appears to be a feed pile in the pond, but it's hard to tell for sure. Landowner hasn't said anything about seeing beavers though and there's no sign of tree damage anywhere around the pond, so we'll see.
