1000 Beaver Milestone!

1000 Beaver Milestone!

I’m not sure if I am the first to catch one thousand beaver in these cages, but maybe.  There was never a goal to catch a thousand beaver in our Comstock swim through beaver cage traps in the first place or any specific number for that matter.  One thousand just...
Streamline Woodchuck Trapping

Streamline Woodchuck Trapping

               We love baitless woodchuck trapping with our compact 18 and 24 inch long Comstock double door cage traps, especially when combined with sheet metal nose cones at dens. It’s not uncommon to make these positive sets and get a call a few hours later,...
Another Raccoon “Comstocked”

Another Raccoon “Comstocked”

This is what happens when you drop a Comstock Chimney Trap down a chimney. You catch a raccoon. This was the first try, first night after purchasing the C59Chim trap for a new Animal Damage Control Operator, ADC. Rather than this being the exception , first night...
Making Comstock Beaver Cage Carrying a Little Easier

Making Comstock Beaver Cage Carrying a Little Easier

Jesse from Washington shared this photo of a carrying strap she made to carry the Comstock 12x18x39 swim through beaver cage trap on her back.  It’s a lot easier when you have your hands free when hiking.  We also have made bungie cord carrying straps with all...

It’s that time of  year again, skunk breeding season.  Seems a bit early, but I guess pretty close to normal.  From mid February until early March around here they show up under houses, sheds etc.  The location pictured is one where they seem to be able to get...

Porcupine in a Comstock Swim Through Beaver Cage Trap

Though the 12x18x39 Comstock Beaver Cage Trap was designed to operate in and under water primarily for beaver and otter, it works fine on land, set standing up at 18 inches tall with the door closing sideways or flat at 12 inches high.  On land the beaver trap has no...
Mega Beaver in a Comstock Swim Through Beaver Cage Trap

Mega Beaver in a Comstock Swim Through Beaver Cage Trap

We just received a photo of a monster 73 pound beaver caught in the “workhorse” 12x18x39 Comstock Beaver Trap, topping our best of 66 pounds.  We have caught 66’s a couple of times with quite a few above 60.  The 73 is the largest beaver we have seen...
