Hi 101 well the best beaver trap i think is one of the 7.5 inch category. #1 is the CDR 7.5 its american made and will hold anything that gets in it, Next comes the 280/330+ sized body grippers. just depends on what the set up look like as to what one to use.

well for one thing, you always have to remember the size of beavers, big and they are animals that can do some damage to smaller traps. i have caught beavers in footholds, with jawspreads from 6 inches to 7.5 inches. the foothold traps i use for beavers is MB650's, Bridger #3's, and th MB750's. you can buy different traps that have different names that have the same size jawspreads, i just use the three i mentioned because that is what i have. for conibears you can use a size 220(7.5 in. jawspread) up to a MB1216( 12 by 16 in. jawspread). But again remember bout the size of the beaver, they are big so i usually just run the 330's(10 inch jaw spread) and leave th 220's for coon and foxes. you can go bigger than the 330 though but any thing bigger is harder to set with just the regular coni tongs.
