Looks like muskrat. Set a #1 or 1 1/2 just under the water with an apple or carrot on a stick in a run and you should have one in the first or second night.

Set some 110's and #1 traps around the muskrat scat we found. Not sure where they are living? I can only find big holes under water that I assume are made by Beaver? But the scat is all over the logs floating in the Beaver pond above the dam.

They will have bank dens like beaver do except smaller. You can usually tell it is a den cause the channel going to it will have a hard bottom as opposed the the soft bottom everywhere else. If you put the #1's close to the bank just under the water with the piece of apple or carrot on a stick stuck in the bank and maybe 6 or eight inches above the trap close to the sign you found you should do good. They are not too hard to catch.
