Hanging out with that Eddie Haskell character!!!


I am uploading the pics I took of the damage this giant did. he must have weight 50-60 lbs. He was as large as a big dog.

Go get 'em! Keep good notes for your story. Here's what I want from you and Young Blood. First, always work in the 5 W's. (Anyone of you who want to write for Pond Boss, read this, please) People want to know Who, What, Where, When, Why and in most cases for Pond Boss, How?. Then, identify the problem as you see it. Answer this question, "The problem is..." Here's why. Beavers are actually a beneficial animal in many parts of the world. In much of the Rocky Mountain west, the only water that is impounded comes from Beavers. There, the water is more valuable than the trees the beavers cut. But, in your case, the beavers did what? Next part of the story is your due diligence. For example, "After I figured out the beavers were eating every desirable tree I have and were building lodges which compromised the structure of my dam (with photo support, of course), I decided to take action. Next, I contacted ???, learned of the different methods to capture/collect/trap the creatures and chose this path...."
You can produce a story that people can read and compare to the issues they are having.
Bring it on.
Photos...shoot good photos of slides, mud packed into the lodge over wood, trees which have been cut, the lodge(s) and your story will have much more credibility.
As for the story itself, shoot for 1200-1500 words, single spaced in Word, one space after a sentence, Times-New Roman, 12 font.

Don't look at the writing of the story as work; look at it as a labor of love.

This way, you won't procrastinate.

Was Young Blood paid at his hourly rate, or did you work out a piece-meal plan for the strapping young entreprenuer?

Beaver are very tasty and easy to fix. They taste a lot like pork.

The meat is dark, rich, and delicious.

But, you must remove the glands when you skin it. There is a "castor" gland near the tail under the belly and the usual musk glands in the small of the back and under the forelegs. These should be carefully cut out without damage and discarded. Also, remove all surface fat. Hang the carcass in a cool place for several days.

The tail is also delicious. Many consider it a real delicacy. Many people parboil it, but you can put it over hot coals until it blisters. Then turn it over until the other side blisters. Remove the hard scaly skin. The meat is fantastic. Cube it, and prepare it with beans, much like you would with bacon or sausage.

Yum. Enjoy.

Ken

Regarding writing the story...don't think about writing. Just tell the story. I'll do the rest...with love, of course.

I forgot BOTH! I really wasnt expecting too much from my first trapping try (glad I was wrong). I was really happy when I saw that bad boy dead as a doornail. and the other trap still in place. I saw when it had taken a few more trees down the pond about 100 yards away from the lodge. I believe I may have more than just this one beaver. I am going to go back out NEXT weekend with more traps and take more pictures of the trees he took out.
I have pics of the damage uploaded if you want to see them lemme know.


I am going to start working on the writing tonight and get more pics on friday or saturday. I am all a twitter.

Way to go. Were you able to reset the trap by yourself?

use the word "like" often
for example: I saw this pile of sticks on my dam and I was like "whassup with this?" When I saw the size of the beaver, I was like all a twitter.
