Beaver Snaring

Got some permission at some good looking ground along the river with fresh beaver chews and instead of buying 330s and big footholds Id like to try to snare them (after Christmas of course). Anybody snare flattails on here? Where do you get your beaver snares from? Thanks!

Re: Beaver Snaring

here is one from last year.in the right situation snares are as good or better than a steel trap.i bought 10 dozen from randy schuler a few years ago, however he is no longer in the state.look at the pta website and you can probably find someone who sells pa legal snares for beaver.

Re: Beaver Snaring

I LOVE snaring beaver! 8 inch loop, 2/3rds above water, on active slides, in channels, even at castor mounds! If a 330 or a foothold goes SNAPPPPP!!! in their face, you now have a smarter beaver. If they knock down a snare, it's just another weed... they'll be back tonight. Plus it doubles the number of sets you can have. Any good supplier will have PA legal beaver snares. Hint; your cable restraints are legal beaver snares.

Re: Beaver Snaring

I agree with Mr Jamison although the river here fluctuates so much at times its hard to maintain anything that needs to be completely or even partially submerged.
