Re: Beaver Trapping?
A 160 for beaver is entirely too small if not illegal. Years back, when Pennsylvania's beaver season only kicked in in February much of the beaver trapping was done under ice. I knew several fellows that used their #2 fox traps under ice in drowning sets for beaver with good success. Today much of the beaver trapping is not done under ice and I consider using a #2 under these conditions risky at best even when setting for a front foot catch. If you can swing it pick up a couple of #3s and a pair of 330s and have some fun.
I trap mink because I don't know any better
