beaver trap ??

Ok guys I would like to try my hand at beaver trapping, one quesiton I have is about the id tag on a extension wire. I understand one coming off conibear and snares, do you need to have one coming off your foothold traps too.

Re: beaver trap ??

One must be attached to ANY trap or snare or cable restraint.

For beaver sets, I've heard it advised to attach one to the top of the drowner line or have one somewhere visible so your set can be checked by whomever without pulling your trap out of the water. This would be especially useful when you've made a catch and your tag is at the end of the drowner attached to the trap holding your beaver.

Yes. I have my one on the trap chain, then attach another tag to the loop of the slide wire so as to be visible for an officer, poacher, thief, trespasser, whomever.
