I would like to know, if anyone has any lure info they are willing to share. What I am looking for is a food lure or a curiosity lure for beaver, with the summer time in mind. I do not want castor to be part of it. This will be used in the south eastern part of the country mainly. Here, the main food for them is Black Willow and Sweet Gum. I have even thought of tapping the Sweet Gum trees to collect the sap like they do maple to make that good stuff for pancakes. Just thought maybe someone will have some secret that does not use castor in the formula.

Good morning. If you do a search on here you should find numerous non castor beaver lures. We make a few for trap wise/castor wise chiseltooths. If you search usernames like Backwoodsman etc all of our lures ive posted should come up. Tapping the local trees are a good idea. You can also buy wood oil for some lure houses that work well alone or in formulation. Beaver are a curious animal at times too and ive caught many on sweet rat lures. Warmer weather beaver trapping can be tough as they arent attracted to bait and to a degree lure. BÅ‚ind sets, dam, den, trail sets might serve you better if its nuisance jobs in the late spring/early summer/summer? Beaver have an attraction to sweet flag too just an FYI.
