When cold weather arrives and am setting for k9's at dirt holes, I use beaver fur laced with whatever lure I'm using. Beaver fur holds the lure without letting it seep into the ground and the smell of beaver will linger and mix with the lure as well. I obtain this fur when I'm skinning the beaver. I use an old scissors when I make the cut from tail to bottom lip. After the cut is made I run my fingers down the cut and any loose fur is gathered, placed in a baggy and used at sets. Once the lure is added to the fur I toss it into the bottom of the dirt hole and gather up grass, roll into a loose ball and gently plug the hole with it.
As for the carcass of the beaver. It can be quartered or chuncked and used as bait in the dirt hole. This bait works excellent around beaver ponds or any other waterway for k9's. If the castors are shells or peanut, they too can be placed in a dirt hole by themselves and are excellent baits. Same goes for the oil sacs of smaller beaver. All medium and larger beavers castors and oil sacs I dry or freeze and either make an excellent lure out of or sell. Just the way I do it.

You don't want to hit a big rock with your Pogo driver though, don't want to ding up the end to where it won't work correctly.
