Steven Rinella Shows You How to Trap Beavers and Muskrats

Here’s how to trap two of the most popular fur-bearing animals.

Always wanted to get into trapping and fur harvesting of beavers and muskrats, but didn’t know where to start? Look no farther. Let famed expert Steven Rinella, the Meateater, and his friend show you how it’s done!

These guys definitely seem to know their stuff. They provide helpful information on signs to look for when seeking these animals out, especially the bubbles in the ice. I’ve seen this kind of thing before, but never put two and two together on it. Who knew?

I’ve used similar traps on woodchucks before, but had no idea how to use them on either of these animals so this video was worth taking notes from in order to help me better my own trapping.

I had never considered either of these animals as table-fare before. Steve Rinella will eat anything, won’t he?
