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.

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.
