What is the best time to hunt beavers?
Beavers were once hunted almost to extinction because they were valued for their pelts, castoreum and meat. Today, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), beavers are not considered endangered. They are widespread, common in many parts of their range, and their populations are stable.
Some of these rodents’ most common predators include fishers, coyotes, hawks, brown and black bears, northern river otters, lynx, eagles, mountain lions, owls, wolverines and wolves. People are also serious threats to North American beavers, as they sometimes hunt them for their skins and fur.
Will a pellet gun kill a beaver?
Historically, trappers and hunters regularly hunted beavers for their pelts and it led to a sharp decline in populations. Following longer periods of restrictions on both fur trade and beaver hunting, the beaver population has returned again to many areas and is on the rise.
Beaver may be hunted and trapped, without a licence and during all seasons, on privately owned land by the owner or occupant of the land, or by a resident with written permission from the owner or occupant of the land. Visit grandslamer’s homepage! Thanks very much for the info and the reference.
