Are you serious here? Although they don't prefer carrion, they eat it if hungry enough.


Wish I had more time to trap....

I am serious. I have another serious question. What if I have a carcass pile with lead in it. lead pellets, lead .22 ammo in the carrion. I certainly don't want to harm predators coming into a pile of remains...


Just a weekend trapper...

Lead might just make them retarded. Then they would be easier to catch. They are not going to eat anything that will harm them.

Some raptor centers and wildlife rehab outfits will take some carcasses to feed the animals in their facilities. Could be worth checking with any in your area.

Take them down to the inner city for the kids to play with.
I found out they can have some great fun with skinned carcasses.

Our local Audubon Center won't feed anything that has been shot to the raptors.

I've tossed a bunch under the manure pile. It's hot under there and it cooks them down quick.
I've also buried a bunch with a 3 pt. auger. It's fast and effective but the manure pile is easier.

I throw mine back side of our land. I drop the beavers off at night in the neighbors drive way. Makes good dog food. Saves the dogs from having to drag them so far. grin

Over the carcass pour powdered lime and cover with wood chips.

That is a very fast way to get rid of the carcass. For awhile the DOT was doing that with roadkilled deer instead of picking them up. They looked like graves along the highway. Maybe that is why they stopped.

Disposal of carcasses was one of the biggest factors in the catching as many animals as I did over 14 year period of time. Every hour saved more profit for me because of the way I was being paid. I would fill up with gas at night or in the morning before daylight. I would discard animals at night or before daylight. The nearest landfill there was two of them were 18 to 20 miles away. They werent open seven days a week. During that time some of the years about 7 years my son trapped near the house (Within 75 miles) part of the season. We each usually caught 10 to 15 beavers every day seven days a week. When my son was there in the winter when schools out he would catch up to 10 to15 beaver per day. I usually caught three otters every day. My son usually caught 1 to 3 every day. I caught some bobcat and fox and a few coon. We essentially were discarding up to 4 tons carcasses a week.How we did it was all of the previous post but the main reason we were able to do it was that we had up to six pits dug each winter . Half to 3/4 of a mile from any home or dwelling. They were on my farm.I had a small tractor i used to backfill the holes when the discarded animals were placed. By doing this I was able to gain equivalent to at least 1 to 2 more days daylight to set new locations every day. To verify that I did this you could ask Slim Pederson because he trapped coyotes some of the years that we filled the pits. I traveled over 300 miles average per day checking up to 60 locations each day with a 24 hour check. I used up to 175 330s ,10 to 15 snares, just under 15 foot hold each day.There was no GPS. So I memorized The county maps prior to the season Or at night.I also lined up my permissions in the summertime or on any free time that I had. I was trapping up to eight counties. Usually three counties at a time. It was critical to work this way because of the warm weather in the south during the winter time. Animals would start stinking within three days and had to be discarded in ground as soon as possible.And December January and February they were usually so many animals caught the truck had to be emptied at least once a day sometimes twice a day to make room for traps needed for new sets.Most winters the fur market was no good for beaver and animals were just discarded.Most of the years and trapping was done in about 100 to 120 days or less each year. This was because of the warm weather after March 1 and before December 1.An alligator farm offered to buy the carcasses and put a refrigerated truck at the barn. The state would not allow it.

Every few years or so,. somebody finds a carcass dump in the woods, and the media morons make a big deal about "Witches, and Satanic rituals"! LOL

Composting in wood chips has been good. Had a tree service remove a lot of pine after a tornado. Kept 50 yards of chips. Had to laugh about tossing them on the highway. Might work with one or two, but think some might get suspicious if there were dozens in a clump.

Don't be silly! Animals die all the time from eating things that can and do kill them. That's how poison works.

If you're leaving animal carcass' to render or be eaten by maggots or vultures, 5 acres wouldn't be enough.
500.......that's more like it.
Many places in today;s world you can't get away with it.

Made a deal with the local garbage company who also owns the dump. I have two chest freezers. When they are full, to the dump, to the dump, to the dump dump dump! They definitely pinch me for it, and require a bunch of paperwork, but its worth it. I can pass on the costs to the customer. Very handy when I pick up a deer carcass that wont fit in the freezer.
