I set 28 stools and caught one rat the other 39 rats came off of feed beds and toilets. I can't figure It out I've caught 1000s of rats off of stools In ND In the spring but these WI rats won't commit to them.

Newfox,
Did you make your own adjustable muskrat boards?
I make most all of my own boards. I like doing it just like all aspects of trapping.

Whats a stretcher, is that the same as a forming board ? pun as for old terminology used

Interesting hoop design on the front of the float to put on your stake I presume.
So what would happen if you put an old door hinge on the floats front to make them collapsible for storage space in the summer ?

Northof50, I think your talking about the beaver float, I tried staking them, doesn’t work when the water is dropping but may work when it’s on the rise, I store mine outside, they are made from cedar, I think the best feature of the ring is I wire my 330 to the ring and the ring is wired to tree, if for some reason the float fell apart, I would still have my trap.
