Guys, I've got three beavers that need killin' asap. They are destroying stock tanks/farm ponds and the dams that hold them. I called the wildlife rescue folks and they recommended I pay a professional pest company....yea right.
I explained to the "wildlife rescue" folks that these particular beavers urgently needed rescuing as they were about to be dispatched with extreme predejuce, but they still declined. They explained to me that discharging a firearm within city limits was illegal (the beavers are not in city limits).
No closed season on beavers. Landowner may dispatch beavers legally anytime.
Beavers may NOT be legally relocated anywhere within NC...
So, anyone got any 5.56 TAP to spare? There are three beavers in three ponds, all with summer pelts. The pelts get better in the winter, but I can't wait that long. Not a pic of the actual target, but a very good likeness. I think a 22 WMR would work well, but this is an AR15 board...nuff' said.

Is this at your B.O.L. if so put me down for the slaying.

What about a .308????? I gotta try out the scope on mine.

OK, Sp00ky is in. Yes, this is at my BOL.
In some parts of the world (France) Beavers are considered dangerous game so we need some backup/ammo bearers. The plan is to take them out Saturday afternoon/evening then have a BBQ and the usual debauchery.

Beavers laugh at .30 caliber or above. I hear the bullet is too slow...they just duck under the water and pop up somewhere else.

What part of NC are you located at?

My usual hit fee is $100,000 but since beavers are a lot smaller target, I may have to lower my rates.

EDIT: I have a 10/22 & a SAR1 if they get up close & personal.
Link Posted: 10/3/2007 4:52:15 AM EST
I am in!
Looks like I will have a few more weeks off work.
SO How far do I need to bring the TSS (Tactical Squirell Slayer) ?
I could bring the 9mm carbine
Link Posted: 10/3/2007 5:25:00 AM EST
Sounds like a job for Tanerite!!!


All I have to say is Hey Sp00ky I bet you can' Hit that "fill in tha blank" from here.

Looks like we'll have a few folks. Spartanatheart and TruckinAr: My place is about a mile in, on the left. Brown cabin, tin roof. I'll be out there Saturday AM, come out whenever.

Camp if you want. Bring whatever supplies you require. I'll have chicken, country ribs and red taters' for the bbq and a few cold beverages.

Bonfire in the evening, so if you want to roast hot dogs on a stick bring em.

Cabin floor is available for sleeping bags/small mattress's, plenty of tent space on the lawn. Propane cook stove for bacon & eggs provided.

We may end up on a walkabout or crazy off road adventure so don't wear nice clothes.

I have a small plinking range setup, pistol caliber/rim fire only. Feel free to bring carbines or pistols, please no rifle calibers. My targets can't take the abuse. (but the beavers sure will!)

Do they just swim around in the day? We've got a couple that keep messing up our creek crossings. Can't set any traps, cause our little Corgis swim down there and might get snagged.

Chris,
I've seen them mid-day but not often. Evenings and mornings is when I normally see them.
The little buggers were shy at first but now they are getting brave...it'll be their downfall.

So the actual hunting is scheduled for the evening? I work in the morning to mid afternoon so I might be able to make it.

According to www.yahoo.com's weather report, Saturday will be pretty nice.

EDIT: I've never been hunting before. We don't really have to pour animal urine on our clothes do we?
Link Posted: 10/3/2007 11:13:59 AM EST
I would love to rid your land of rodents. Alas I must check with the significant other first. I have wanted to see you cabin, how did the boards we planed work out?

Spartanatheart: Beavers are not technically game animals, so it's not really hunting. More like sitting in a chair watching a pond, then shooting the first large rodent that comes to the surface.

Zippy: Your certainly welcome to come out. The boards aren't up yet, but will be before spring. Waiting on cooler weather to do the interior work...no ac.

Space: Of course you can come! Sheesh, you know don't need an invite! Your not allowed to drive the 4 wheeler, but you can ride on the back if you dare! You aren't allergic to beavers are you?
Link Posted: 10/3/2007 11:47:32 AM EST
Seems like all the fun stuff happens out west (by out west I mean the other side of 95)
Looking forward to the AAR

I have never killed a beaver, but I have known many a good man to be killed by a beaver.

Seriously, I have seen them take a solid hit and keep on moving, so it ain't like shooting rats or something. They are solid animals and for a humane kill, you'll have to make a good shot. Sprayin' and prayin' will have them hit, dive under and surface elsewhere to suffer.

Would a .22LR with Federal 36 grain bullet be a sufficent cartridge or would it need a 7.62x39 125 grain SP cartridge?

I have both of those & a 12 gauge.

Hmmmm... If they are still alive sunday, give me a call. I might be able to drive up. I'm thinking quite and automatic.

What, no torture testing the gear box ?
o.k., I guess I overdid it the last time

riding on the back ?
do you mean the free-style-surfing-trailer ?
Depends who's driving...

alergic to beavers...
do you mean female beavers ?
....well, let's not go there...

anyhow, I'll bring some good bruskies, o.k. ?



Link Posted: 10/3/2007 4:57:12 PM EST
I dont have any TAP, is Wolf OK? If not, I do have soft points for the Dragunov, or a Savage MKII in .22LR that is downright surgical. Speaking of Savage, where is he at? He's the expert varmintfragger around here. We could all shoot it on the count of 3!!

For those of you who haven't been to my place yet, be aware that the facilities are minimal.
Outhouse and firepit, propane stove, No running water. Generator power. Floorspace is limited, but available. No worries. Looking forward to meeting some new folks and seeing some old friends.
Anyone hear from Francis????? We need at least one responsible adult to supervise Eric...

Luckily this time of year the chiggers, ticks, snakes and spiders are not out. Fall is great for camping.

Wish I could make this I've been wanting to see the progress of the BOC.

Chiggers and ticks are making a vicious last stand in the Charlotte area at least--had to break out the real rubbing alcohol, and some absorbine jr and chiggerex two days ago...

I'm curious as to who's bringing what as far as the guns go.

I've got my 10/22, an 870 12 gauge with 18" barrell & a SAR1 in 7.62x39.

I remember that the OP stated no rifle calibers for his targets but what if I bring some empty 2 liter bottles to blast?

And of the guns I mentioned, which is the best for beavers?

12 ga slugs. Brenneke slugs. Find them at Dick's for $2/box of five.
The rodents will laugh and chew up .22 like candy
Link Posted: 10/5/2007 9:52:44 AM EST
I'm heading out in a few. Bring camp chairs if you got em. I think a 5.56 will work good to dispatch the beavers, plus this is an ar15 board...it's only right.
No cell signal up there so don't plan on calling home once you get to the cabin.
There is a country store down the road a few miles, they have cigs, beer and bread.
A few of us are camping out tonight so we'll be in top form tomorrow.

Sure, out of a smoothbore--your barrell isn't choked, I'm assuming. I am sure someone may lend you an AR

It's a smoothbore.

I'm trying to buy a complete lower but no offers so far.

I may not get to go after all. My boss just informed me that he has "plans" for me tomorrow. I won't know if I'll get to go until the last minute.

Slacker, you've inspired me to take some action against our beavers this weekend.

I've got an Ruger Vaquero in 44mag that hasn't been shot in a while. Gonna sit on the bridge this evening and see if I can't pop one of them.
