SUBJECT: # 71080: What's the best Beaver bait?

Submitted by Spooled Again from TEXAS on 11/22/2006 8:19:00 AM

Was out front last nite, couple hours after dark, and heard one them big blue herons raisin hell on the pier like something was really, really troublin it. Seen a what I thought was Muddy's 50lb coon on the boat ramp, ran inside grabbed the camera and flashlight. Run back out and started sneakin up on the grazin mammilian. Took a couple fotos I haven't checked out yet. Standing thar on the Boat Ramp lookin in the darkness and water had the chixt scared outta me. It was so quite and peaceful at the moment, not a sound or nothing and then 10 feet a way from me a giant Slap-Kawooooooooooshhhhhhhhh! Splashed me wet. Never heard one tail-slap the water so hard or loud.

Musta been a 30lb beaver is about all I could figger.

Now for the question. Just planted about 30 new saplings on the hill right in front of the boat ramp and of course Mrs.
Beaver was lickin her chomps.

The question: What is the bestis wood to bait a beaver trap with and where can a guy get a good beaver trap? Just wanna relocate the furry, wood chompin bastage to save my trees.


Can somebody hep me?

    Caint someone really, really hep me?

    Seriously, I don't have a clue how to trap them critters. Haven't seen too many of them down here, guess the alligators ate em all.

    I know you can catch muskrats with carrots and lettuce, but I don't if that would work for them beavers.

    Too many dam annoying critters.

    anyways...this might help. Poplar oil is the ticket..

  7. 11/22/2006 8:56:00 AM Submitted by StevieP ( from MA says just don't make your trap out of WOOD
    metal would be your way to go.

  8. 11/22/2006 9:01:00 AM Submitted by fatboy ( from OH says As far as a live trap I don't know
    Seeing as how they are pretty much just tree eaters I would think a snare type trap might work ,but dang if I would want to try to free it. Im thinking Chucky Bucky Beaver would tear you a new one

    Me Id just check around for someone who traps and tell them they catch it they can have it. You might want to contact your D.N.R. I know around here they used to catch them to relocate them destructive burgers. Have you ever seen the damage they do? You could just put up some kind of chicken wire around your trees.

    Might want to see if someone makes a beaver repellant (no comments you perverts) kind of like Ortho Goose be gone

    Have you heard the one about the beaver that walked into a club? L.O.L.

    The bastage beavers actually clear-cut my front yard four years ago when I was overseas werkin. Took out 3 redoaks, 5 crepe murtills, 1 maple, a white oak, and ash tree. Then they knawed holes in the wooden bulkhead and set up house under the front yard, had babies, then they had babies and now we got a major problem. I got that chicken wire around the close-to-water trees and it seems to hep out, but the coons broke into my shed last nite and stole a set of wire snips. Saw the scawny bastage coon literally caught in the 'headlights' makin his getaway. Those guys can run perty good on three legs toting loot. He drifted off into the neighbors yard before I could catch up to him.


    Thinkin of moovin back to the city me!

  11. 11/22/2006 9:36:00 AM Submitted by Scout from AL says Don't call the DNR
    or whatever Texas calls it. You KNOW they will come out and do a study to conclude they need your land for beavers and will offer to buy you out for 10 on the dollar.

  12. 11/22/2006 9:37:00 AM Submitted by renDraP ( from OTHER says Pepper spray

    The bottom parts of the trees you want to keep.

    When it rains, do it again.

    Otherwiose contact your local animal control folks.

  13. 11/22/2006 10:21:00 AM Submitted by Spooled Again from TX says Swampy
    What your sayin is put some popular oil on your wood and the beavers will be attracted to it? Izzat what I'm hearin here? huh?


    Whut is popular oil?

  14. 11/22/2006 11:14:00 AM Submitted by MrDo from TX says Ok here's the deal. Remember, it won't happen overnight.

    Bait those beavers with loads of candy. Once tooth decay sets in (cavities) they'll be thinkin twice before they bite into another piece of hard wood.



  15. 11/22/2006 12:06:00 PM Submitted by Scout from KS says Spooley it is Pop-lar.
    Not pop u lar. Poplar, as in the type of tree.

  16. 11/22/2006 12:13:00 PM Submitted by Spooled Again from TX says That's rite Scout
    Them oaks are poplar around here too. Beavers seem to knaw them bigger ones reglarly.


    Whautz the limit on beavers anyway?

  17. 11/22/2006 1:03:00 PM Submitted by Scout from KS says I've found
    they are kinda self-limiting. Ifn' you know whut I mean, and I think you do. Some of them Beavers themselves seems to have no limits, but snakes OTOH is only good for one or two beavers...

  18. 11/22/2006 1:24:00 PM Submitted by renDraP ( from OTHER says The limit on beaver is,

    About 4 times a night for 4 months straight.

    Been there, done that.
