Hey guys, is anyone here around the Ann Arbor area? How’s that part of the state for beaver trapping? Thanks!

It's not beaver country.There'll no doubt be a colony here or there,but no numbers.If somebody knows the area better than me I'll stand corrected.I never trapped the area,but I did around the Flint area which is north of Ann Arbor and while I did trap beaver there it's not beaver habitat either.I don't know where exactly your looking but Ann Arbor is a college town and wall to wall antis.Id be careful.

X2. If you want beaver go north a couple hours. I'm 30 miles south of Ann Arbor and beaver haven't yet came back from being extirpated in the late 1800's. I expect beaver in my area in another 20 years or so but it isn't very good habitat so we won't ever have a large population.

Yep, Ann Arbor will definitely have you on the wrong side of Checkpoint Charlie LOL
Watch your back and operate quietly
