I'm infested with beavers at my camp, they are flooding my trails, chewing up the trees in the yard and generally changing the entire landscape of my property. One dam is very close to the camp and I'm afraid of my drinking water being contaminated. Another dam has flooded acres of woodland a short distance away . I have no idea how many there are in the area but more than a few I'd have to say. Can any of you trappers out there help a fella out.

One of the prime reasons for having a camp in the first place is to get away from the 2 legged type, cause first they want to talk, then they want to decorate and its all downhill from there.

Davey if they are on your property then just shoot them with a 22. Hate to say that but realistically its going to cost you to get somebody this time of year. You dont want that water in your well. Its perfectly legal to shoot them as long as its daytime on your own property.

Thats a fine solution, I just haven't figured out how to get the beavers to come out in the daytime and put a silencer on the .22 so the kids don't know what I'm up to. Kids think its really cool to have some beaver dams around and a horrible thing for Dad to be tearing up the dam because "how would you feel if somebody ripped up your house" Anyway, thats where I'm at. The .22 works but not quick enough and I don't think I could get them all cause I'm just not there enough. I'd be willing to pay....

Little bit of Liquid Smoke or Vanilla extract and the kids will learn that bears like beavers.
No noise,no mess...no bad rep for dad.

Just make a hole in their dam in the evening, 6-7 pm and sit and wait and dont move. They will come to investigate to see how many night shift workers they need to fix the leak. Then just let them have it. It can be great fun. Thats how me and my brother got rid of the ones on his land. We got 7 in 2 evenings. Budy also shot a few expired boating distress flares in their house that made them move a bit faster also. We left the dead ones on top of the beaver house and the rest got the picture and moved up steam about a mile.
WOW!We need more posts like this in public forums!

HAHA just screwing with you guys we didnt go that far with it. I was having few to many beers and i tend to add to stories to make them funnier when im drinking. But seriously make a hole in their dam and sit and waite. Thats what we did and they soon came in to investigates, we did get 6 of them in a week or so. They had flodded a platation on my brothers property about 3 acres big. The wardens told him he could get rid of them, as long as he followed the rules for varmin hunting. So we set up at a 100yrd away with the 22-250.

I got rid of 6 beavers from my cousin's horse pasture this spring.
I trapped some and shot 2.
First I called DNR.
If you are doing on your own property and you are more than 400m from any dwelling,but your own, you can shoot them.
If you are doing it for family or friend the same rules apply. You must not be receiving any $$ for doing this.
If you are getting paid you must have a nuisance animal permit ($50) and you must have passed the Nuisance Wildlife Control Course.

AND the beavers cannot be removed from the property.

Beavers don't take well to being transplanted. Unfortunately for them, a quick and painless death is better than a slow, painful one that they'll surely get when transplanted. Beavers don't take well to newcomers in their neighbourhood and either the new guy or the existing guy will die after they fight it out. The only solution is capital punishment.

EDIT: forgot to say that's the reason why you aren't supposed to remove them from the property.
