Bats are easy money for sure, as per $/hour. But I'm about done with them as it is just to hard on my body doing all the ladder work

Beavers would be what I enjoy the most Only ever had one beaver job I hated. Had to walk a long way to site and the beavers were some of the hardest to catch Guy said no one trapped them before. But I believe someone had been from a differnt property. Half of the ones I caught were black so I think someone had a honey hole I know of a very hard working trapper that trapped the vicinity but had died two years prior to me getting the job. So I think he had kept them in check and then after he passed they became a problem

Skunk but they are rarer than hen's teeth in my service area.

That's trapping for removals I love honey bees.

Without a doubt, beavers.


I do really like mink work, but Iíll take the right beaver jobs over anything else.


I would also like hog work if it werenít for the outlaws that run around messing up the efforts of those that know what theyíre doing, stealing their gear, catches, and pressuring the hogs causing trail pattern changes.

Gophers comprise 80% or more of my jobs but they are not as challenging as moles.

Has to be Raccoons, Skunks, Chucks, Flyers, Beaver & Bats. Getting to that shakey ladder age, So I don't go that high to chase them anymore.

For sure my favorite animals are skunks, especially ones in window wells. It usually takes the homeowner longer to write the check than for me to complete the job.

Though I really love the ease and profitability associated with positive setting for skunks and chucks, beaver is my real passion. It was good to get out this week and do a couple of jobs.
