BANK MUSKRAT TRAPPING—I would like to learn a successful method of trapping bank muskrats. Our muskrats do not build many houses, but live in the banks of deep sloughs and lakes. I have tried box traps in front of their runways but the water is too deep.
Why not try setting steel traps in the entrances to the dens? The animals surely come out of the water sometimes and must leave signs on the bank. Set traps there under two inches of water and if the signs do not look very good, place bait above the trap. If the water is too deep, drive a couple of small stakes into the bank, horizontally, and set the trap on them.
