 Kubota 2, Beavers 1

After one year I finally got the backhoe I bought up an running. I ended up putting a PTO pump and 10 gal tank on it. It pumps enough so that I barely need to run the engine much over idle (about 1500 RPM). More than that and the swing is too fast.

Even before I was completed I had to dig out the beaver dam that's been bothering me. The tank was roped to the side of the backhoe barely hanging on but I could tell right away that it would work. It made short work of the sticks and mud that have been a pain in my side for years. My buddy looked at the ropes holding the tank on called it "Jethro'd up." So that prompted me to finish the tank mounts and now it looks and works pretty good.

Of course the beavers rebuilt the dam that night so the next day I dug it out again and that night I snuck down there with the old sixteen gauge. There was one of the little monsters swimming towards me about 15 yards away. He didn't swim far. I'm starting to act like Bill Murray on Caddie Shack.

I had a coworker ask me if I used a backhoe on my gopher problem. It's tempting I tell you! Beavers vs 16 gauge. Yep, they don't quite compete with that.

Don't flatter yourself. Bill Murray has more brains than the two of you combined!

Sounds like we've got an animal rights activist troll here. Why don't you come on up and give one of those giardia spreading oversize rats a big kiss. Don't step in the #330 connibear though. It might hurt.

I dunno. If Bill Murray is the smart one then maybe you guys should be using dynamite Smile

Ken, dynamite was my plan for the first dam destruction. It would have provided a good show. The friend who "commented" on my fabrication job thought he had a licensed explosives expert lined up. But it was not to be. The guy was lying about his expertise. So it was back to the backhoe plan. At least Wisconsin is pretty liberal about what it will let you do to get rid of beavers on your own property.

Removing the beaver rather than the dams works better I think. A shotgun works for beaver removal but takes a lot of time sitting around I imagine. Around here you'd just call up the trapper who has the district and provide encouragement to trap that particular family out. Some encouragement is needed since beaver pelts taken in most areas (and especially during the summer) aren't worth enough to make tapping them worthwhile. The usual encouragement can provide a good time for all concerned--except for the beaver of course. Of course, more will be back next year as long a poplar are standing--another excuse for more encouragement.

Tom, I agree. Removing dams will do almost nothing to get rid of them. But it IS the fun part. My brother trapped quite a few out last winter but as you say, the pelts are no longer worth the effort.

Now if I were a marketing genius I could imaging getting someone like Deon Sanders to wear a beaver hat on the sideline of a football game. That would start a demand for beaver hats that would spread across the country making beaver pelts valuable again.

Deon, are you logged into tractor point?

Dave, see if you can get Scooter to send you some of those Gophers of his, if you could get them to dig holes in the dam, then the water would drain, drowning the gophers and the beavers would leave because there was no pond.

Now is that not the perfect engineering solution?
