Re: Beaver Hunting
I have a friend that owns an irrigated ranch in NW Colorado, and he has the same problem. He has standing orders that all beavers are to be shot on sight. When we go duck hunting in late September, we see them swimming in the rivers right before dark, near their dams. Every once and a while you will see them during the day.
Those things are hard to kill when they are in the water. I have hammered them with 3" #00 buckshot loads from 10 yards away, and they still flap around. Out of the water is another matter, and a .22 will work.
