330,

I looking forward to seeing your pics! I want to see if I can improve the setups I made from the info on here.

I too will try to tape my traps setup with PVC and Aspen. I have them setup on our pool table now ready for taping.

I love this info that is coming out on underice sets!!!!!

Does anyone else have pics or videos of sets with traps or snares??

Rally, Are you out there??????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's a Good link for Beginning Trappers... it is worth downloading the Manual, and it shows Clear Set diagrams...

I've had the paper manual for 23 years...or one just like it...

jordan it may be a muskrat tripping and chewin the potatoe they like them too. i have used pvc, aspen/poplar, corn cob, potatoe, thay all work but i do find a few fired traps and no matter what it is for bait i find the fall and spring are better. where as the dead of winter the runs with a 330 work the best.

I've never used my Aquaview to check traps. But, I have used it to find the entrances to houses so I could set my traps in the right place.

How far from hut are the feed beds normally? This is my first year with the under ice beaver trapping. In NY we have to be 15 feet from the hut so I am not sure in what direction to head. The spot I found yesturday has a lot of sign but I didnt get to scout before ice over and the ice sucks now to see the runs so I am not sure where to set. Headed out tomorrow to put some baited sets around the hut. Hopefully we will connect.

In my area you can see the feed piles sticking out of the ice a little. But we don't get allot of snow usually either. Look for spots that have allot of small branches bunched up under the ice set on the edges of it.

Kre,

Awesome idea!! Sometimes it is too deep for my waders to feel the bottom of the run.
