Re: Cable restraints

Another question. The way I read the regs. I can use any snare, with approved locks, for beaver. They don't have to be cable restraint. Am I right??
Thanks.

There are six specific cable restraint locks you can use. It must be a cr, not a killing snare.

Re: Cable restraints

Oh, you mean actually using them for beaver? There are no restrictions on locks for beaver.

Re: Cable restraints

It is a little more difficult to catch them without snow to show you exactly where they are traveling, but it is still worth the effort to narrow down those travel corridors.
I find it to be very rewarding catching them without the aid of snow.

Even in terrain like this it's possible to squeeze them down and catch them in the wide open.




Of course burn outs in the snow are much cooler!
