  • Comstock  traps designed for beaver work equally well for otter and muskrats.  Pictured is a 12x12x36 double door swim through trap.  We are also finding that even the smaller 9x11x36 double door traps will take otter too.  Either of the 12x18x39 or 12x12x36 beaver traps work great for otter and even the smaller less expensive […]

  • The past two days, using a couple of odd sized one of a kind traps, just because, proved rewarding.  Yesterday the 12x18x32 double powered door trap produced a 45# beaver and today a 12x15x36 inch trap produced a beaver just a shade under 50#.   These are the first to be taken in the new […]
