TS85

Thread starter #21
I pulled out on Saturday possibly catching out the place. I left those traps on standby until this weekend to see if anyone rebuilt the dams. I liked them well enough to buy two more for another property and set them out yesterday. Here’s another one for the 85.

I’m trying to catch some beavers for a friend of mine. I’ve gotten 3 so far but it’s been slow the last week or so. I’ve never used any type of lure with the conibear traps I’m using. Just curious, where are you applying the lure? Thanks

Off subject for the TS85, but the conibears finally paid off big. I applied home brew lure (cured castor based) that I hoped would work night before last. I don’t know if I applied it a little heavy or they just came in to check things out finally, but I had a huge male and huge female waiting on me today!

This place was a pond dam with the spillway channel trenched down around the bottom of it paralleling. The dam was about 30 feet wide so I set conibears on each slide for matching trails (so they couldn’t come from the back side). All I did was apply the lure on the slide about 12” uphill or the trap. Traps were right at water line.

Good job on the beaver ! Have you ever used it for coyote bait ? The reason I ask is because I went with a guy about 30 years ago and that’s all he used for bait . He would freeze the beaver whole and chop it up with a ax . If my memory is right that’s all he used , and he could flat out catch a coyote

Heck yeah! I get all the pretty meat and grind it when I do one. I taint some and preserve some fresh. Also, I’ve got a heaping pile of oil glands and castor glands that I use at coyote sets too. Sometimes I even feel frisky and carcass set on them whole. It’s a good bait animal in my opinion.

Another great catch! Good job getting your daughter interested. Looks like the Roxor is working out!
Yes, it’s fun to use. I’m still waiting on my dash cluster to be returned from a recall. That’s caused me some headaches, but I’m happy with the purchase and the kids enjoy checking traps more from it than my other vehicles, so that’s a plus too.
