If you can shoot i would say rifle. Just do not miss they get smart quicker than an old yote. After that a caller with the sound of running water will bring them out for some easy trapping.

Yes you can with the sound of running water. No they won't come running like a coyote but they will come.

Nice! The beavers at our place have either been shot by me, shot at by me, or are too leary of a spotlight now. Might have to try the running water thing.

It will work it but may take like 6 plus hours of continual playing. They'll try to cover the speaker up with mud and sticks, so use one that's waterproof. I had to make one myself because it hard to find one that can play that long. Good luck and kill them all.

Or just buy a couple of 330 conibears and actually be effective. Set the conibears in the slides and runs (YouTube for info) and retrieve beaver next day.

A few to may dogs at this point to set traps unfortunately.....Plus it is fun to waste them with an AR-15. Shot one Friday night at the ranch spotlighting one night.
