In some parts of Louisiana, beaver populations are very high, I’m sure Arkansas is the same way in a lot of places.  There are areas that have consistently have beaver problems, forcing local governments to rethink how they look at beaver problems, problems that simply can’t be ignored. 

I was just wondering if bounties Keep the populations in check reasonably well, or if cleanup trapping still has to happen.  There have been problems with people turning in tails that weren’t from where they said they were from, but that doesn’t mean that bounties “can’t” work.  They have to help when done honestly, because it’s knocking back the population.

I believe you’ll have best results with some sort of walk through type set where the animal is in forward motion.  Rather than a bucket set, you may want to consider a cubby type set or a walkthrough baited/lured snare setup.

Whatever you decide, please let us know what you decided to try and how it worked out for you...

Good luck,

Mr . Crandall, in my limited experience, bobcats & otter can be frozen whole unskinned & sold at the state trapper’s auction or some local buyers & surprisingly bring a better price than some that are put up on stretchers & all the work involved with that.

Bobcats and Otter are what are most commonly bought unskinned and can have good value in that condition.

I did some beaver trapping in Pulaski county & the lady in charge said they never run out of money. It’s only $ 10 a tail, but an extra roughly $250  at my disposal means more traps or supplies. That $10 is well more than the green skinned fur. When you factor in being paid for catching the critter & castor roughly $5 / oz , beaver are definitely worth going after unless you have to hand carry all you steel a long way through rough terrain.
