    what kind of bait do you use for muskrats

    i am starting to trap and i was wondering what can you use for bait.

    Best thing for muskrats is blind sets. Setting up their runs with 110's or putting some drowning setups near other activity like feedbeds.

    If you want to use bait, eye appeal is key. Bright stuff like carrots and Corn cobs will do the trick.

    Contrary to popular belief, muskrats will eat meat too.

    Fish, muskrat meat, clams, mink meat, beaver, corn, apples, carrots all work.

    Always stake your rat traps to hold a beaver because even beaver will eat meat at times.
    I wonder what people who support the lawsuits against the gun makers would say if someone tried to sue Estwing because someone used one of their hatchets to murder someone.

    Or Louisville Slugger because someone cloves in someone's mellon with a bat.
