I make no claims about being a beaver expert or even a good beaver trapper. I catch the ones I need to catch and work really hard to catch the ones that will not cooperate. I use every trick I know sometimes and then make a mistake or do something completely WRONG... and catch the last one I have been trying to catch.
I do however believe that there is more wisdom in these words then most beginning trappers ever understand.
I know if i had to depend on beaver lure id find another job.
The lure is really a very small part of it, and in a lot of cases can be the biggest part of the problem.
I set up another ADC mink job and did not even put out any lure at all.
