In the last several weeks one or more beavers have moved in and taken up abode at SHCM. The area they have chosen to cut trees is right by the lake between the girl’s cabins and the OcDoBall. They have started on (or completely dropped) 14 trees so far. If they would be working on the other side of the lake it would not be a big deal, but they have chosen the nice wooded area that we are trying to keep very nice. I thought it was neat to have beavers until they started to destroy the property.
I called the game protector and he suggested we put a fence around the area we would like to protect. I did put some wire around some crucial trees, but it is not practical to fence the entire area. Does anyone one have some good ideas to discourage the beaver from taking more trees?
