The stream has a constant flow. I'm sure the scent trail is all the way down into the big lake below the property by now. Be interesting to see if they make their way up to check out the source. My bet is: yes.
The snake was in his regular location this morning. He might be shedding.
Downstream neighborhood subdivision has a beaver trapper working. It's lethal, so pobably the end of some or most of the beavers. Mixed emotions. No Lake Robert it looks like. He's going to phone my cell when he gets a hit on the traps.
Update: No turtles. Snake in usual place. 15 photos on the deercam of nothing. Beaver traps still sitting. Dam holding.
Update II: Day two. Snake in place: check. Trap still baited: check. Not even a dang minnow stirring.
