Went up North in February, and again last weekend to do some small game hunting on the Delta. What a blast!
The first weekend my buddy Wayne and I each got a Beaver, his was 48# and mine was 25#. Also got a Muskrat, and saw numerous critters! It was amazing being from So Cal, that everyone was actually happy for us to get these animals! I guess they wreak havoc on the levee's and docks.

Last weekend, five of us went up and met two friends with boats and off we went! I ended up with a 62# Beaver, and a Mink. My buddy Wayne got another 48# Beaver and a Muskrat. Our buddies in the other boat got a 57# Beaver and (2) Raccoons. They wanted to eat the Raccoons so they skinned and cleaned them and put them in the micro fridge in there motel room! Glad the maid didn't look!

I'm getting the Beaver and Muskrat mounted and tanning the other two.

Man I love archery!!!!

Haven't hunted Beaver since college. of course that was all catch and release. Haven't seen one that hairy since I saw a 1974 porno mag.

But in all seriousness,

Mr. Scott what is the rules of Take regarding lights, and season? Need Trapping license?

night hunting beavers is legal with a hand held light of no more than 9 volts. Season ended today, March 31st. Just need a hunting license
