Ever try digging a little 2 foot channel into the bank, sort of like a really deep pocket set, so that the silt would go on down the river and not get into your pocket?

I think a beaver would still go into the pocket to reach a castor mound on the backside.

Have had a couple of places like that and it seemed to work. Still need to find something to completely contain the trap so I can us it on sand bars.

I use the light foam that goes under laminate flooring.

Yep not only eliminates the need for a pan cover but gets a good solid bed and a stable trap.


There are no problems that cannot be resolved by the suitable application of high explosive.

Set your trap in deep water about 8’’ and modify your trap so the pan is above the jaws. Use a poke stick at the bank to get the beaver to put its rear feet down. When the trap is set in deep water it doesn’t matter if the pan is flat. For coyote traps, I prefer coated steel screen and when I run out, I double up small coffee filters or crumpled waxed paper.
