Got some problem beavers damning up a pond overflow stream, this is causing some massive overfilling that is destroying both driveways on our property and neighbors property. I’m fine with beavers, were generally pretty good, but they’ve overstepped and time to go to war. Friend who’s a beaver trapper suggested I just knock the dam then shoot them than evening when they come out to rebuild. Anybody got experience shooting beavers? I’m a little wary of shooting around water but my state agency lists shooting as a beaver killing method, mentions them being in the water, and mentions you’ll probably need a “high caliber” rifle or shotgun over 22. My state also says it’s perfectly legal to kill beavers year round by a landowner, so we are all kosher legally for those watching.... What do I shoot them with? 6.5prc? 12 gauge? An AR? Suppressed 300 blackout subs seem like a decent option? Anybody got a good beaver recipe?
