This was a castor mound set. I was lying 18 feet away and videoed the whole thing. Let me know if there are any videos that you would like to see and maybe I can make it.


Many catches on film! This is a very simple snare set made in entrances to lodges or bank dens. The first clip is the the set itself followed by a number of target catches all made in the exact set itself. This is my first attempt at making a snaring video if it goes well i will be making another one with 330 conibears through the ice and 330s with castor sets. Thanx and enjoy. P.s I apologize to The wild north for using their intro in a lot of my clips I'll make my own next time.


This is a video I forgot to upload in March 2013 on the last day of the PA beaver trapping season. It also features an otter that I caught in a 330 down the creek from this beaver. THE OTTER WAS LEGALLY TURNED INTO THE PA GAME COMMISSION.
