The Ontario guys pretty much covered the explanation. One of the earlier posters suggested the OP might have been doing the nuisance work for little or no compensation. My point being mainly that trappers tend to sell themselves short as far as the service they perform. It's a unique challenging skill set like any other trade and those providing the service need to be well compensated. Sometimes I think trappers become so accustom to working for nothing in the fur industry they let that mind set spill into the roadside beaver work. Consider the value of your work if you're preventing a $100,000. road wash out.

I did this job for no pay. Kind of using it for advertising. The CO and the road Department guys were both a little amazed at my success. Hoping they will think of me when a landowner has a paying proposition. Anyway, it's been 4 years since I had set a trap, so it felt good to get out. Incidentally, this was the easiest beaver trapping I have ever done.

I say again "good job". It is a shame you have to jump through hoops to salve a problem for the DNR.

The key to real success is being that guy with the skill, patience and work ethic to go along behind those types and fix problems they've created. Clearing grates, pulling dams and unplugging culverts is no fun. Don't doubt for a second that public works road superintendents know who's getting the job done.
