50 pounder caught the other day. Pulled my traps off the farmer's land. 12 Beavers, 5 Muskrats taken there. I think he might be the last one. Well until next season when more move in. I also used there body's for my bait cat sites. Redtails hawk's and others critters are hitting the sites but no cats on cam

You could cover the bait with boughs so the hawks won't see it.  Even a single feather tied to a cotton thread hung from a branch near the bait can flag in cats.  Those cheap molded bird seed bells will attract noisy little birds which can also get a cats attention.

That's way I let all the animals fine it. I was going to dump them in the trash anyways. So might as well feed the critters at all my bait sites. Then I will place traps after the baits are close to being gone and showing 🐈 sign. The area last season was a dumping ground for hunters and farmer's. Deer ribs and goats skeletons up and down the road. Lots of critters.

Well that skunk trap finely payed off. Caught this big guy before he robbed my cat trap. Finely put out 2 more skunk traps out by my other cat sets. Hope this cuts down on them setting being set off.
