4 Legged Beaver Solutions Wanted
« on: July 02, 2018, 12:03:53 PM »

The 4 legged Beavers have set up camp on my property.   Lodge and fairly well developed dam.  Creating a lot of pond area on property flooding timber.  I’m looking for a temporary solution to get to Trapping Season in October so I don’t lose too much timber.  Area was select cut 3 years ago and there is lots of young popple so I suppose that was the catalyst.  I’ve dug out the dam and put pipes thru that they built back over which work until a stick gets stuck and then they plug. 

Other than dynamite in their lodge does anyone have some suggestions.  I just want to control the backup until I can get a trapper in there.

 I did talk to the biologist and he’s the one that gave me the plans for the pipes through the damn to allow drainage. It seems to work for a while but then debris gets in front of the pipes and plugs it with grass and leaf litter a little bit and requires periodic cleaning.   I tried to attach a picture of the project but for some reason it won’t allow me to send it here.

I just checked to make sure pictures were working on the forums, the picture must be in the following formats: doc,gif,jpg,mpg,pdf,png,txt,zip
and must be under 500k or .5 mb per picture.
good luck,
brett

Here is the finished project, for now.  They built over the pipes no problem and we had to add the cage around the upstream end of pipes to keep sticks floating down from creating a clog and it’s down in the mud hopefully so beavers can’t get inside to plug the pipes too

Speaking of beaver, they let Stormy out of jail after a brief internment today. Up to her old tricks.  ;D
