I will be trapping in southeast Kansas later this year for under ice beaver. What type of tree do you get your bait sticks from? I do not have any poplar on the property that I am aware of..

get whatever they are eating in your area. Try willow, maple, or some other soft wood. If there are willows in the area they seem to be pretty fond of those, cut a bunch down and strip the bark off to make them nice and bright. That should do the trick.

I've always used cottonwood. But, see what they have been cutting. I've always thought the great big buds on cottonwood twigs would look appetizing to a beaver. I think you could even bring in some bait sticks from elsewhere and it would work. They aren't smart enough to reason that a particular species of tree wasn't there before ice up, "so what is it doing here now?" :D
