Olive oil would not be my choice to use regardless.



But, you already knew that . . .

I might not be extracting the oil, but whatever it does make, MUSKRATS LOVE

Could it be pulverized in a food processor?

The vid I saw, the lady simmered it for a while then strained it. I used it this winter for beaver trapping under the ice. PVC pipe with bud oil smothered on a piece of wool, jammed in the pipe. Got it from Dam Beaver and at -30 itís so thick you could pack wheel bearings with it, itís black too, not sure if they added stuff to it.

There is a tree here called Bam,(Balsam Poplar),it has sticky buds in the spring.
It is not the beavers preferred food but they do cut it and use it when there is no polar(aspen) available.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

How would it work to strip the bark off poplar trees, then crush it and make an oil from it? The bark has a definite smell to it and that is what the beaver eat.


Diapers and most politicians should be changed often both for the same reason.

I tried that using Glycol as a food lure

I never properly tested it

LT GREY Please say more, that is very informative. A guy I trapped with was squeezing something using a car floor jack against a beam of his house and extraction the oil that way. It might have been a water weed (lily?) though. He would never say how he made his lure........jk

Along our flowages here, if willow is not available, river maples are by far and away the next favorite tree for them to chew.

When do you collect them? Once the (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) willows are out?
Iíve read not to strip a little tree bare of them, could kill it.

I wouldn't worry about killing willow. It is a coppicing tree and will be fine.


My fear of moving stairs is escalating!

I have a couple lilac trees in the back yard.
I was pruning some branches one winter that were growing onto the roof while I was up there shovelling the snow off.
They looked a lot like green willow,so I took a few,scored them up and tried them on a couple under ice baited 330s
I caught beaver.

Maybe I will try a small addition of lilac oil in place of anis for a changeup lure.

Happy People movie the guy makes birch oil for bug dope. Built a fire and distilled it somehow. It's been a while since I watched it.

I just cut some up and mixed with castor or crushed some limb tips and threw them on the bank behind a 330 Not very scientific and not difficult enough to work Don't try it
