How to trap and catch muskrats in colony traps in channels

This is a great way to rack up numbers of rats in a hurry. It is hard to beat a colony trap. If you are going to get into this, you will find that you will want to buy or make several sizes. Some will be 5×5 inches, 6×6 inches, three door longer traps and wide ones like that are in this youtube video.

If you can catch a rat in a conibear trap, you can probally catch them in a colony trap. the fun part about the colony traps are the repeat customers. Most trappers think of colony trap and blocking up dens. This thinking will only limit you.

    don’t be afarid to make wider traps as well , here when the season starts the water is normally low and the runs are pretty well defined , after the first couple of big rains the vegatation is washed back and the runs are much wider in that case i like a wider trap
