Beaver Question.

I am currently trapping a large stretch of a crick on our property. I just got 2 conis set the other day because the ice finally melted down an was able to take a average size one the first night. As I walked the crick I noticed there are several different damns on our property. Would there be a different family living in each [censored]? Or would it be just the same family of beavers traveling back an forth?

Re: Beaver Question.

i'm trapping the same thing right now. I have a few traps spread over 3/4 a mile . small dam couple peeled sticks...another small dam bank hole slide couple sticks...ect. it keeps going like that. i caught 2 there in the last 3 days. sometimes it is hard to tell where they are "living" because they move around. find the freshest sign and set on it and above and below. i like to set snares in the area i think they are so i dont spook them and get a 330 above and below to catch the travelers.

Now your diggin' where the 'tators are!
