I've had nearly 100% luck with that IF I spend the time and set them up right and not cut corners. Still works when I cut corners just not as good.

Good to know. Nothing beats castor as a universal attractant :2cents:

I think that setup is similar to a dog peeing on a tire. They just can't help themselves.

I did some trenching yesterday and dug a 4' wide 4' deep 16' long ditch through one of the dams and its got the water flowing good. If my math is right its draining at a rate of 36,000 gal/hour. This morning I checked the area and the water level has dropped a foot. I hope to get some more trenching in today so maybe I can get most of the water off the trees by the end of next week if it doesn't rain. I know the beavers are going to be concerned over their water loss so I'll set out some more traps in this area in hopes of catching some more.

I wish I did have a pirogue and have thought about getting one of those standup surfboard things because I think a boat would be too big and I don't know how well I could stand up on that board thing so I have to sludge my way through the muck and watch for snakes. Its not a friendly walk you might as well expect to be bleeding by the time you get out. I hate beavers.

Fixing to go down there at lunch and do some more trenching. These things aren't going to beat me.

:lol2: No, I'm not doing it by hand that would be a fool's errand and I'm too old to be chasing butterflies. I figure there is no need to work hard when you can work smart. I'm using Bangalore torpedoes and some other things. It takes a little time to get everything set properly but once set you'll have beautiful trenches equivalent to what a trackhoe could do in no time and the neighbors will hardly notice.

Here is one of the trenches I put in today at a bottleneck. The flow has doubled so I figure its draining around 72,000 gal/hour and after a couple hours the water level had dropped another foot. I'll have to hold tight for now since I've got to be careful how much water is released from this basin because I'm responsible for any damages the water might do downstream and I'm sending it downstream at a good click.

Once the rapid water drop has subsided I'll go back and set more traps and hopefully do some serious thinning of these vermin.

It is very warm. Oaks are beginning to leaf out here. I saw my fourth snake yesterday but it was only a black racer. I went in the swamp today to check on things and didn't see any snakes but plenty of mosquitoes. Water level is lower than I've seen it in a long time and the pesky beavers don't seem to have tried to rebuild any of the dams. Maybe they are on the run.

Put together some 1/8" cable snares for pigs this afternoon. I hope to put some try them out tomorrow or Saturday.

Between the beavers and the pigs I'm staying pretty busy.
