    A beaver is chewing every dang tree up and down my creek line. Havent seen it or a beaver dam. Anybody interested in trapping or know a good method otherwise. Hate to keep losing trees. Located in Mercer Co.

    They actually live in a hole in the bank on most creeks/rivers find it's pull out where it's coming from the water up to the bank a good snare take care of it but don't be surprised if there's not more and they travel quite a bit so home may be a ways off

    Ease in there about a hour before dark or about 30 before daylight and wait. Really need to figure out where lodge is.

    Every one I ever Had has been a Problem. Some more than others, but they all bring Big Problems after you sign the Bill of Sale for one.
