Hard to see but in your damn break set your traps above the damn are under the water? Or is the end of the trap in the opening of the damn break?

it's in the opening of the dam break. It is a one-way door cat trap that Bruce made so I placed the opening of the door towards the pond it's 50-50 so the beaver can just swim right into it and I have a Castor inside.

Bear Hunter, Thanks for the "sketches", they really help to get the big picture.

The lone lake’s western boundary,   
And deemed the stag must turn to bay,

Well today with the flood coming the beavers came out strong to repair the dams. 4 swim thru's and 4 beavers not bad day of trapping.  If you look closely. You can see my drive sticks and Guillotine door trap in the pics.

Nothing better than an animal in each trap.
Nice job dude.

Yesterday was a good day to. I got a call from the farmer and there was a beaver in one of the traps. He couldn't get to the rest of them because of the flooding. So I showed up yesterday and the first trap was empty and doors shut. Dang it I missed him. The beaver cut down trees just passed the trap. Hmmmmm well I reset the trap and crossed my fingers. Then I checked the next 4 trap had beavers in them. I didn't have enough swim through traps. So I used Bruce's cat trap and placed it in the water down the run and end up with a beaver in it. Not too shabby so far 10 beaver from that pond the farmer is very happy and I have a new trapping spot.

Today I hung 9 beaver carcasses am I trapping area and placed one trail camera. I'll see you in a couple weeks if it produces some animals and then I'll get some traps out. Today I caught one Beaver about 25 lb roughly and a muskrat.

Today was slow only 1 muskrat. The beavers are getting smarter. I moved most of the traps to new runs because of the high waters. Hoping this will work I'll check them in 3 days. Then I'll check my trailcam at the bait site out in the woods. Getting antsy to see if they're being hit.
