What scents, baits would you guys use on spring beaver in south wisconsin. I have 3 large farms with drainage ditches that have beaver problems. I've gotten 2 flat tails so far but the weather has me shut down as far as bank den sets. Just wondering if I should wait for the water to go down or if baited, scented set would work better.
Thanks,
Fur Chaser

I guess it really depends on how quick the water will receed, or if it will receed. If the water is going to go down fairly quickly, then I'd just wait, if it's gonna be a while before it goes down, I'd make a few sets. For scents, castor is just about all I use.

i agree with catman castor sets, or willow sticks tied to a conni trigger any food baits will attract non targets

Caster mounds are hard to beat, but another good set is to find on old run so you have a chanel to guide the beaver into your trap, set your 330 submerged just under the surface. Put a 3 or 4 inch thick dry log across the top of the trap so the beaver will want to dive under the lime (and right into your 330) then just take an axe and chop down a tree of what ever your beavers favrit kind is, here it is popler, cut it on an angle and chop it up alittle so it looks like a beaver cut it down. Now simply lie that log and some of the chip just out of the water behind your trap. Come back the next mmornin and get your beaver :mrgreen:

try slices of apples...i found this out when beaver wrecked all my apple sets for muskrat. I also discussed it with an adc trapper i know and he said it was a great switch up bait. All i do is cut a shelf in a steep bank and guard it with a 330. I ran that set the last four days of the season and had four beavers.

During the summer ADC and cant seem to have any luck with any kind of bait. So anymore I just do blind sets. Which arent to hard in the irrigation ditches I usually do.
