Basic Common Sets
The information on this page is meant to
give an idea of basic sets that are proven effective for various species. There
are literally hundreds of different sets for the different species of
furbearers. For some individual sets, there are dozens of variations of that
set, far too many to list here. We will continue to add sets as time permits. If
you have a picture, diagram or description of a favourite set, send it to us,
we'll add it to the page.

Dog Proof Coon Box

Beaver & Otter Under Ice Channel Set
Floating Mink Box
The Floating Mink Box should be
constructed of dry lumber. The box itself should be
constructed out of solid 1" boards. Plywood will swell and the
layers separate when exposed to water for any length of time.
The stabilizer floats should be constructed of dry 2" X 4",
cedar is best if available. Use a weight tied to the bottom of
the trap to keep the box from floating away. Fish, Eel or
Muskrat wired to the mesh on the back for bait. Apply a good
mink lure to the top of the box.
