Here are some pics of what to look for when scouting for otter. There are also pictures of there latrine sights as well. The pics also show what types of areas to look for the latrine sights. I hope this helps.











I hope this helps DH

Here's a pic of an otter toilet on top of an abandoned beaver house. He is going in and out of the hole to the left. MB 750 prior to covering. He was able to exit the house into the river below the ice and catch fish. Then he camped in the beaver house for quite a few weeks.

Thanks gary! I really appreciate it when you guys pull together to help the guys reduce the learning curve. It means alot to me if we can get and keep the young trappers. It will save us in the end. Our trapping heritage means alot to me. Thanks a million

Actually Todd I don't own a 220 but will this season. I had an otter get dinged by a 330 just down river from this location. I think we talked about that in ANC also.

In this set I kept catching foxes so I pulled it as they destroyed the set-up. I was really trying to take a wolverine that had investigated the set-up just before I set it.
