There are lot's of beavers around right now. I'd look on Google Earth for big swales on State Land. Those swales were originally created by beavers and each one likely holds a few.

Just make sure you are not stepping on anyone's toes by trapping their area.

Yeah ive looked at those maps. They are a couple of years old though. Im looking at going way in on the 5 ponds wilderness area up the oswegatchie river. I dont want to bother anyone else. Is it any good up there?

Also check with the large land and lumber companies. There are lots of hunting clubs looking for someone to trap beavers that plug up the colverts on their roads.

Chuck, I've trapped Near Little Tupper Lake area the past 4 seasons and have caught approximately 50 odd beaver, cuople otter and a handful of rats and mink. I would guess you would do well in the 5 ponds wilderness area , but don't be surprised if other trappers are in there. Good luck.
