HI all I found a hot bed of beaver and was wondering if a 220 is way too small? I have a 330 or 2 but I also have a 220 I would like to use if it will work. THanks

....and he wants to know if size really matters ;)


Seriously though, as a general opinion (since I have never trapped beaver), I would say that you should use the 330's....since you have them. Why use borderline equipment? If youre going to set a killing trap, then kill them good....this way you can sleep good at night and not worry about catching Beaver-zilla, that might batter the lighter gear and anchoring system as it remains alive.

I would place traps capable of catching the largest animal out there. So expect to catch a 50# beaver and place traps that will catch 'em. It is mighty disapointing to find a sprung trap with no animal inside.

I'm certain a 220 would work. However, the only time I would use one is in a tight spot where a 280 or 330 just wouldn't fit.

330 all the way I have personally caught beaver in 220's that were meant for otter, but don't recommend it. I no longer use 220's for otter anymore either. 280 is the smallest I would go for beaver they work great for beaver, but the 330 is best. Good luck
