Was just on the phone with an Ohio friend, Tim, who set his first beaver job of the new year. Trap shy, one beaver. He set 660's, brushed them in and the beaver removed the brush. "Great" way to start the year. Lots this going around in the states. It once was a challenge, now merely an aggravation. Far more rewarding to set two traps at dark and have the pair at sunup.

In my opinion most guys do to much guiding which Is not at all natural Less Is more In my way of thinking. In most case the beaver Isn't trap shy it's SET SHY.

Know what you mean about over fencing etc. Sometimes a bare trap is better or just a little brush to break up the outline. The brush is now gone and the traps are standing alone. My guess is they still won't go through them, but maybe? Bare cages work just fine. Brush is often for thieves or nosey neighbors.
