    I live by a lake with lots of houses and dogs, cats. We have a beaver(s) chewing up the trees. I don’t want to use a snare trap or hire a trapper (they all want to kill the beaver) so I bought a large cage trap along with beaver castor oil for a lure. Any advice past that? Are cage traps very effective in catching beavers. I just want to relocate the critter after capture.

      Utube videos by Kirk DeKalb should shed some light.

      Are you wanting to catch coons and fox or other furbearers? Anyway for the fox trap the ecotones. Around here the fox stay in the thicker stuff because of the coyotes. For the coons its hard to beat setting near water sources(creeks,rivers,ponds,ect.)
      I hope this helps. I’ll check back here periodicaly to see if you replied. Come on men help a newcomer out if you can it takes a village to raise a child.

        In upper michigan, I get grey fox in the brush, reds at funnel points close to town, and for coon i’ve got alot of corn field country bordering hardwoods,cedar swamps, and creeks. In coyote country, go big on trap and pan size, even on fox sets. Its better to find out a yote or bobcat worked your fox set by seeing it still standing there, then seeing tracks by a fired empty trap!!
