This is only my second year of trapping and I haven't trapped any beaver. On one of the properties I trap the landonwer is having a large problem with the beaver killing some of his very large oak trees ( Turkey Roost). He has asked that I try and trap these falttails, but the creek is about 15 yards across and the banks are about 15 feet tall and very steep. The creek also flows pretty fast. I was just wondering if you guys could give me any advice, and help me get started. Thanks

CD :)

Can you see their runways? If you can put a 330 in the runway. It has worked for me.

Here is a float set that works well where you have a good current. Don't know about the laws there if your coni has to be completely submerged or not. Just make a small scent mound on the point of the float and anchor so it is away from the bank in the current, the beaver will approach from down stream and enter through the coni.

Thanks, glad to be of help.

They also work well in cattails, you just shove them back in the cattails so they can only approach from the open end.

We also have some small lakes that have old floating debris several yards out from shoreline. You can tear a channel out to put the float in.
