          I usually check my traps within 24 hours of them being set. Me and a buddy of mine actually caught a beaver this morning. I like to get the castor out of the beaver and use that for bait or you can sell it if you get enough of it. I use a conibear trap in size #330. The castor is attached right next to the oil glands of the beaver.

            Most states are every 24 hrs. I like to use legholds set around a deer carcass or around a big brush pile on varmint trails. Like will said FFG is a great trapping magazine with lots of info and great stories. Judd Cooney writes for FFG and some other magazines and has a lot of good information.

              Use Victor traps. Trappin for bobcat didn't catch any thing. Wasn't too many out around our place this year. I also used some lure.

                i trap nearly 275 coon a year just on snares. i used to use legtraps but they were expensive. simply just make the loop for raccoons about the size of ur open hand and about 3 inches off the ground on a well worn trail. trapping trails means no mess and bait to buy. stake it to the ground or if there isnt a tree near by close the loop and wrap it around a tree then bring it back through the stake loop and pull it tight around the tree. try to check them every day from a distance. ---- but this tactic is only for coons, grinners, and ground hogs. for coyotes and fox put the bottom of the loop 7 or 8 inches off the ground and abouut a 13-14 inch diameter hole. put this on a tire track trail (in the tire track) or on a hole in a fence. - go to "the Snare Shop" for cheap supplies and get the washer locks they are cheap and effective. all in all u can make 100 snares for only about 35 to 50 cents apiece. CHEAP and EFFECTIVE
