I am possibly getting a private pond to trap this year and I need to find out how to make good floats. Is anyone willing to post instructions on making muscrat floats?

You would be better off not using floats, and going with setting feedbeds, runs, bankdens, lodge entrances etc.

Using floats in a pond might catch as many ducks as maskrats.
