Use this for your shallow water sets for beaver. Remember to shorten your trap chain and add swivels.

Thanks deerhunter I will be putting this set out tommarow I only have 1 330 and I just cant cover the slides,I have 2 220s but am scared to use those on slides.They are positioned on bank dens and they seem to be thinnig out the rats but no beavers yet.I repositioned my 330 today to a run they seem to be using alot so tommarow we will see.Boy I have a taxidermy shop and skin and flesh alot of critters but them beavers are tuff.

I am a state and federally licensed taxidermist to, But i dont do much any more got to many irons in the fire. And yes beaver are tough to flesh but the reward is worth it. I took a 72 inch beaver last year and had the hide comercial tand and it turned out beautiful. I would recommend every body do there first beaver that way. It will give years of memories and there a great conversation piece. I wish i had that first beaver of mine. I would have it done. Beaver and red fox are my favorite furs there awsome. It cost 45 to get it done but was worth every penny.

wildWV you should really learn how to clean skin a beaver. Its take a little longer at first but there is only minimal fleshing when your done. I learned it from watching Hal Sullivans movie Clean skinning beaver. Its well worth the money. He shows you in detail how to clean skin, flesh, and how to make beaver stretchers and stretching the beaver.
