A customer called to remove some trouble beaver. He had a guy with a back hoe come ovah and ripped the dam out.....and what you see here ,is two days later...lol. Only had time to make 2 sets today...got a 330 at the base of the slide...and another 330 above the dam. Will see what I got in the morning.

A Paul Grimshaw trick......tie a piece of wet paper towel ,high on a branch ,about 10-15 feet behind (down stream) from your set...and dip it in the lure bottle (Backbreaker) ....which I won off a Green Bay Packer Fan ,here on T-Man...lol

Down here, Woodchipper would be the better choice this time of the year. Backbreaker may work for you up north where the temperatures aren't so oppressive. I hope it works for ya..

I use Woodchipper all summer long with good luck and Backbreaker in the fall and early spring.

Well.....aftah the dam was ripped out by the back hoe....it left their hut,high and dry. The beavers repaired the dam quickly....but I think,have moved on,due to the low water. Caught 2 big (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) snapping turtles in 330ís in 2 checks....both released and unharmed....but not a beaver in sight.
Going to put a fresh piece of poplar at the waters edge tomorrow morning...and keep an eye on it.

Keep us posted! I'm jealous. The urge to set steel is strong. No sense going after summer coyotes or coons and beaver season is still 2.5 months away. Good luck!

Hey, at least you are out and setting steel. One of my favorite places to trap over the past two seasons for beaver was a lake with a creek feeding into it. They just completely drained it to deepen it apparently and will refill it but it's now a bone dry dirt clod. I will have to check tomorrow but I'm sure the beaver are long gone.
