    Default Nuisance Beaver

    Looking for information on how to go about having someone trap a nuisance beaver on a small lake just outside of Baysville- Lake of Bays area.

    What is involved as far as permission or approvals?

    Thanks

    quick google search gives this,


    People are allowed to shoot beaver on their own property. The Game and Fish Act allows private landowners to destroy a nuisance animal if the animal is damaging their property. Check with your municipal office first to determine if the discharge of firearms is prohibited by local by-laws in your area.

    just another thing that came to mind, my uncle had 2 huge beavers putting dams all over his property causing everything to flood, youll catch them in the water swimming.

    we were actually up at his property to put up some tree stands and we came back for lunch and we noticed 2 little brown dots in the pond, my uncle noticed a dam in another little stream he had going through his property but in the last few months his property was becoming mush and he could never find those beavers until that day when they moved into the pond

    from my experience they wont run out onto dry land if you are right there , they will stay in the water and dive down and hold their breath , theyll go and dive down for a few minutes but will have to come back up for air. they are strong animals and get VERY big. i wish i had a picture of the one my uncle took out.

    by the way if they already made a dam and are flooding things once you take that beaver out take that dam out immediately beavers will take it over and continue to do what he started.

    from my pervious post tho, from my understanding you are only allowed to kill a beaver ONCE it has started destroying your property and becoming a issue.

    good luck with it!

    Contact your local trapper councils or the MNR and ask for a local contact. Trapper just needs landowner permission.

    I have the same problem on a small lake I am on which has risen about 1 1/2 foot in the last few years,this summer while fishing I could easily see that the lake had a whole family on it,probably 6 to 8 beaver.
    The problem is I am at the low end of the lake and they have flooded out my dock area and killed off scores of beautiful tree's both hardwood and cedar.When I contacted the MNR they stated the beavers have to be damaging your property and be on your property,which they presently are not.

    I did contact a local trapper last week and he laughed basically telling me he has been unable to sell even his last year's pelts
    and would only come out to trap if paid $100.00 a beaver AND $100.00 for mileage for every trip.

    Same story here on our lake. You'd have to pay a trapper up front to come trap any nuisance beaver because they've been unable to sell any fur. I know how I'd handle it.

    I have been advised to do that but fundamentally I do not like breaking the law,wasting the fur and the resource.

    What bothers me is if a licensed trapper must meet a yearly quota and the MNR knows the damage being done is this not a good example where they should be trapped.

    The land around my Lake is mostly owned by a City guy who I like and get along with,however his cottage is high and dry and my land is in the low spot of the lake,so he's OK with the flooding as it does not affect him.

    Just had a couple beaver removed from the creek running behind my property. They spent the summer damming the creek until it was almost ready to flood my yard. Luckily I know a trapper who removed the beavers for a bottle of his favorite liquor.

    That seems about the going rate in southern Ontario lol.
    Well that's what my uncle was getting years ago not sure if he added milage tho he only stays local .

    Sucks the way the Furr trade has gone.
    Good luck with them.
    A dam burst on my grandfather's property and it destroys everything.

    It left dried up pond for year afterwards.
