Re: How many beavers per dam
I once trapped where they were multiple small dams all over the place, and sign out to wazoo. I thought it would be 2 matures, 2-4 2 yr olds and some 1 year olds with all that sign. Turns out it was all a single mated pair doing all that mess- 1 male, one female, weight was in the upper 30's. It was late season and the female had 4 kit fetuses in her. It is possible some other beavers had been there before and something happened to them and these 2 moved in.
