I have used a mix of poplar oil and maple extract from the spice rack at the grocery store. I dont know if the maple helps attract them, since beaver don't eat maple bark, but it makes it a little louder. Might be more of a curiosity lure, but it works in mid winter.

Earl just informed me they will eat maples. Now that I think of it I did see a small maple tree that was beaver chewed, but I assumed it was for dam building and not food.

I stand corrected. Thanks Earl.

Around here they took a liking to sweetgum. Finished up a nuisance job a while back that was all about beavers making a mess of a stand of sweetgums that were about to be timbered.

Personally, I think a beaver will adapt to just about whatever food source is easy and sometimes not so easily obtainable. Regardless of how goofy it may be!

Dobbins Woodchipper is a great food lure. I've had it work when they wouldn't go near anything castor-based.

Mike Marsyada and Dave Plueger also have beaver food lures. I've not tried them, but they are available.

How about Tom Olson (Bogmaster), does he have a beaver food lure? I've always heard Tom's beaver lures are first class producers. Ace

Clint Locklear has one called "Beaver Buffet". I've caught beaver on it especially this time of year through the summer on Nuisance work.

I'm sure Bogmasters is a quality lure as well, although I've not used it yet.

Woodchipper is an excelent food lure.........my favorite.

Bottom, i think beaver buffet is more a curiousity type lure than food lure, smells real similar to pauls Beaver Plus. Caught a few summer beaver's with it myself.

Two thumbs up for Tom's MOUND MASTER!!! Good question. Does he make a beaver food lure?

Ace, you're too modest. I've heard nothing but good things about your beaver super all call lure!!! When you gonna come out with a food lure? Did your dad ever mess with a beaver food lure?

Actually Asa's beaver all call is a superb lure.It doesn't seem to have the overpowering castor smell too it, and it has somewhat of a sweet smell-not sure if it is a mint of somesort or what, but the beavers really like it. The base seems to be vaseline or something of the sort, I really like how it works. A great lure. WTA
