I need some suggestions on how to catch some beaver that have been pinched by conibears close to their dams. I'm caching them around the perimmeter, but am having a hard tome around the dam. These beaver have to be caught as it's a nuisance job. Help

Foot holds with a little dam break, tough to beat.

When you earnestly believe you can compensate for a lack of skill by doubling your efforts, there's no end to what you can't do.

Snares may work, but they may not. It depends on how paranoid the beaver is. I have found that well hidden foothold traps work the best on educated beavers. Pay attention to the beaver and it will tell you how to catch it. That sounds corny, but it will serve you well if you pay attention.
