Not what you are thinking ;\) but Now that I have your attention.

We have had a Beaver problem on the farm. Best guess there were 7 of them. Over the past 6 months we've shot 4 and broken their dam 3 times. Each time they repaired it within a day or two. We launched an all out assault over the weekend.

Their dam backed about 2-3 feet of water up across about 8 acres including one of our food plots. It was 2 feet above water level in places and ran about 300 yards long.


5 of us with shovels axes and picks broke it in about a dozen places with gaps as wide as 3o feet. The water dropped a foot in 3 hours and it was nearly dry the next morning.

Next we burned them out with 2 people waiting with shotguns.

Gregg got pretty hot in the stand and the ladder caught fire. \:\)

The fire probably wasn't necessary since we could easily get the tractor in there, but hey we got to have a big fire.



2 came out 1 got shot(no body recovered) but he flopped a bit before sinking. He might not be dead but he didn't have a good day. So there might be 1 or 2 left, but they have a LOT of work ahead if they want to rebuild. Gonna check on them in a few days.

Beavers can cause a lot of problems..One thing I learned about Beavers ,is they are much bigger then I thought.
Just a heads up I think they are illegal to shoot. ;\)

Just kidding ...they are legal year round

They're Satan rats. We kill lots of them on our farm each year and new ones reappear and rebuild whatever we destroy. It's an ongoing cycle, but we get to blow up stuff once or twice a year.

Play them a recording of running water and when they show themselves shoot them or use napalm.
