Is there a way you keep these from being cleaned by ravens?


I placed them in dense second and third growth forest with a thick canopy at least 50-100 yards from a timber edge so far no problems with Ravens just the darn long tail cat variety ripping them out of tree and packing them off deeper into the bush

 :yeah: but if you are still having trouble you can  slide a feed sack over the carcass like a sock.   Leave the bottom end open so a cat can get to the bait. Birds can't work it from above because of the sack.

I will not take credit for that idea. That is an old trick. First one who told it to me was George Sovie probably 25 years ago. There are few ideas that someone before us hasn't already tried.

Those old tricks are practically new tech to all us younger trappers since there are few people to learn from around here, not to many old-time trappers around that's why I always chit chat with them any chance I get always get some great information and ideas!

Speaking of tricks I brought the tips and tricks thread back from the dead for the new trappers this year. Read my last tip in there :bash: :bash: :bash:

Well it's pretty easy to get permission on a beaver spot when you drive down the road and see where the land owner has been breaking a dam open to drain his back 40 and stacking all the brush on the road so he can move it with his tractor so after meeting him and shaking hands I placed three traps out on this new creek

Trap set in place with minor blocking off and dive sticks. Owner said he has been battling the beaver since he bought the place in February so they are very active rebuilding dams he opens up every weekend. Between driving home to get traps and getting back (about 30minutes) in full daytime they had already placed some sticks on the dam
