That's how a Minnesotan thinks.


I’ve trapped beaver for 150.00 Bottle of Scotch before...lol


Sounds reasonable.


But, I’ve also trapped for “some beaver” before, and should’ve asked for Scotch.

I don't do much nuisance work unless it is for the county, and it's less than 20 beaver per year usually. I try to hammer the beaver in season, and catch all the travelers I can on my regurlar line.

I also trap any potential nuisance beaver spots on my trapground in spring after ice out.Invariably more move in though sometime after the season closes.
The spot I'm working right now,I took 9 out the week before the season ended,and now 3 more a few days later on a nuisance contract.It should save the local road board a few hundred dollars just the same.
Got another call today from the power company for two spots up north on the Dam access road.

Nice. I got another call today myself. Gotta wait for permitting yet. The mother colony is on private land but keeps kicking out 2 year olds.

Any problems on private land here the complainant (dept of highways for example) has to get written permission from the owner for the trapper to go on the private land to trap the nuisance beaver.If the complainant does not submit a copy of the written permission to the trapper,a contract will not be written.
Some people try to prevent trappers from trapping the nuisance beaver on private land.But if it is a threat to the hwy,RR,or other company roadway,it will be made known to the owner that they will be liable for any damage to infrastructure or death or injury to the public if they do not remove the beavers themselves.
At that point it becomes a non issue.
I don't like going on private land to trap nuisance beaver but I will.I always make sure that they know when I start and finish and that deadly traps are being used,and to keep kids and pets tied up.

I could have trapped this private land but it was some distance out of my trapline loop. So is the problem.
