Yesterdays put up of 50 rats went very well.  I think Weasel and I took about 2 hours to put them up, which is about right for old guys.

We were talking about the operation and I really feel bad that I didn’t take a video of Brek skinning the rats.  I was on line and watched a young man show how he skins, fleshes and stretches his rats.  Trust me when I say, if he caught more than 10 rats in any one day, it would take him all the next day to put them up, if he used his shown method on each of them.  But, they were put up properly….

We ended up taking down the other 60 rats and put them on hangers, so we now have plenty of room and stretchers for the remaining frozen rats.  Those rats we took out of the freezer to thaw and I hope they are ready to put up this afternoon.  I’m sure a few of them will have to wait until tomorrow because they are still too wet to put up.

Meanwhile, Bob is talking to one of the buyers to get a feel for rat prices….

The trapping year has been a great one despite the ice and snow that kept us from getting the start we wanted.
