Beaver only. Not allowed to pursue otter here. There are better designs for cats and other dry ground animals.

Have you set 3 or 4 traps in a row down the stream about 15 feet or more apart to test for refusals or go arounds on the traps with the doors already down?

In the experimenting I did where the trap was placed with the door down, and amount of current also made a big difference on refusals. The direction they were coming from in relation to the current. Current puts pressure on the closed door. It helps on one end and hurts on the other. I always ended up setting two traps or more on the main run when possible no matter whether the trap had a colony feature or not when I first set.

that's awesome! I have often wondered why more trappers don't try this. Other than the laws don't allow us. I have thought of building one very similar to that to play with on nuisance beavers. Our laws are a bit more lax on problem animals. But I bet if you piled them up like rats you need a crane to lift them out!

Most situations I deal with are 1-2 beaver plugging irrigation ditch's, dam shows up trap goes in beaver caught and on to the next spot. Where I live there are no ponds or true colonies of beaver just roamers coming off the mountain or up from the bigger rivers.
These cages allow for the ditch riders, farmer, rancher etc to do their jobs with dogs in tow with out fear of injury to them. In the past you suspended a 330 across the ditch but this made it rough on dogs.

Yea, and you would need a much larger trap and the place to put it, if it worked like that every time. M-T has a good point. Even if your design allowed for the catching of a complete colony. You still would need to get it to the location. Have the ideal location conditions such as water depth and flow. Even where the house or den was located in the pond. What if there were no runs or holes, just slides.

Best to experiment. Nothing better than actual experience.

I can tell you I have a full arsenal of this type 12x12 up to 18x18 so as to fit any size situation. Even in the odd case of a lodge with a run, a painters pole with a hook on it makes fast work of setting them.
