Cool, thanks for the input!

Got 3 cages out with hind beaver leg in it. We'll see what happens. I watched 3nails YouTube videos. He said to get the pan about 1.5" below water.

What do find works best? Are you also catching some of them in swimthrus?

Only caught one mink before (in a bobcat trap  :chuckle:).
Always wanted to catch more so I'm targeting them this year a little bit.

all the mink are caught in small cages. We set near the waters edge and cover the trap with grass so it looks like a tunnel. make sure if you are setting on a big stream make sure you wire it off in case the water comes up.

Anyone ever had this happen?  We hung a beaver in this tree couple weeks ago.  The other day while checking it the beaver was gone and the tree was all tore up.  The beaver was hanging a foot or 2 higher than where the tree is tore up.
