    I'm hoping someone out there in the Livingston County area can help me. I've been at war with the Beavers on our property for two years. They have completely made half of my property inaccessible and had taken down hundreds of tree's. I keep blowing but and digging out their dams but I'm pretty sure they have them built back by the time I load the truck up.

    Would anyone be willing to volunteer their trapping services to help me get rid of these nuisances? I'm losing my mind.

    Unless you find a trapper real close I doubt you will have anyone interested unless you pay, your best bet is to buy you a half dozen of 330 conibears and take up a little trapping yourself there's plenty of videos on YouTube to get you started might cost you a little but not as much as the timber they are cutting down

    trapping is your best bet..Buy a few 330's(330's are easiest for a new trapper to catch beaver with), watch some video,learn how to set them and your beaver problem will go away fast

    You need to find you a trapper i have a constant battle but after a serious trapper worked the farm this winter lot easier to deal with. Warning there is a season on trapping them

    You can trap the Beavers, but there is a process that must be followed. Contact your CO and/or your biologist and they can point you in the right direction.

    If you get the 330's don't forget the setters. You will probably need them.

    one thing you need to do first.

    if you get some 330s find someone to show you how to set them. they are simple as for as the workings, but they are pretty dangerous if your not careful.

    Almost forgot the most important thing. Get a safety device for the 330's. Do not trust the hooks on the springs. Put the safety device on as soon as you set the trap and make sure that removing the safety device is the last thing you do to the trap when you place it and are ready to leave the site.

    And if your not into trapping I've always had luck sitting on the bank with a .22 right before dark
