Default I need help from the THT beaver hunters

Some of you should be ashamed of yourself for clicking on this thread.

I have a beaver on the farm trying to dam up an access road. I want his ass gone. I break up the dam on day and it's repaired the next. Busy busy beaver.

How do I kill it? Nocturnal hunt? Snares and traps? Poison?

You could hire a trapper or trap it yourself. My neighbor trapped a big one and made it dissapper. I normally just shoot them. SSS.....although I just blew the last S.

First, ya get one of these.




Then, you go out on the access road and do the crazy beaver dance, making little circles and flapping your paddle tail, being sure to make lots of cooing and churring noises. When Mr. Beaver comes out and starts laughing at you so hard he's rolling on the road, you pull out the AR and blast him.

Be sure to save the skin. They make GREAT hats!!!

Don't pull out the wang so quickly. Ya gotta start by licking them first. Right on the forehead on that lump. That is always a winner for me.

Phil Robertson did an episode on Duck Dynasty regarding the eradication of the beaver. I believe dynamite was involved.

Leave it to Beavers

Trapping/killing beaver in most states requires a license, and can only be done during an open season.
Under certain circumstances they may also be trapped at other times of year but by special permit application only.

First, you have to spank the beaver and see how it reacts then go from there.
Some like it and some not so much.

If you are wealthy enough you can just walk up to it and grab it by the Beaver.

Get a good chair a 6 pack and your deer rifle.

Set up about an hour before sunset. By beer 4 or 5 you will see him swimming across the pond about dusk.

You only get one shot. If you miss try again in a few days.

Probably live trap it, do not poison it. My lab/husky mutt [3 legger no less] used to camp out on the ones in our woods. She killed 2 that I know of.

Beavers are good for a lot of the eco so I would hope you can trap and take for a long ride.

No need to do that. Beavers can be hunted day and night in Ga. No limits or restrictions.

^^^^That kind of advice is what makes THT great.

I have a green light on my AR10.... I will take multiple shots.
