Hallo,

itīs me again from europe.

I got a big problem and just wanna ask around.

I shot a beaver last saturday with my martin saber and my own line set up. After about 15 seconds i tried to pull it slowely to the riverside. BUT Then my arrow was broken!

Iīve seen the beaver swimming at the lake parallel to the riverside. It swam really irregluar. It dived for 5 meters and then had to come back to the survey to breath. After about 40 meters it swam to the riverside and i couldn't see it anywere. It also wasn't possible for me to take another shot cause off the vegetation. I searched for it for 3 hourse from outside AND from inside the water but wasn't able to find it.

I'm really sure I hit it at its lungs. I read that a beaver is able to dive for about 20 minutes at dangerous situations.

Question: Is it possible that it can swim this range after hit AT LUNGS?????

Realy thanks for answers. Sorry for my bad english.

Greatings

Aren't the beavers protected by the law? As far as i know you must not kill them in Europe. A little poaching? :confused:

Hi man,

they are not protected everywhere in europe.

And a small question to SPIKER: Why are you shocked. Shit can happen and i'am not amused about it. I used my line-set-up earlier and it worked well.

If you think that i did it wilful you are false.

The last days i got back and searched again. Now for about 5 hourse without any sign.

Show me only one hunter who does the same.

I've read carefuly your post - i'm afraid you've missed your victim ;) and that's why your arrow is broken and there's no sign of the beaver. If you have hit the animal, its body would have absorbed the shock and the arrow wouldn't be broken. The only other option is the body is stuck on the bottom of the river.

From your first post I am thinking that you built your own bow fishing rig for your bow and use it to shoot beavers so you can drag them out of the water. Is this a type of hunting that people over in Europe practice? What type of arrows do you use? What do you do with the beavers after you get them?

Jep that's right, i built my own rig.

But thats not the way every european hunts. My rig is createt to fit on a carbon arrow. And i'am fishing too, so that i think to be able to create a Line-Rig. What do you do after you hunted something?

Maybe some people "throw" the hunted animals away. But not me.

My arrow. Was a 500 grain arrow. 60 pound martin saber. Like i said before:

I already hunted successfully. The thing i was asking for was shit that can happen.

Just a small question and you think that i'am unable to hunt????

Are you perfect? Did you ever make a mistake?

i think a more appropriate, or useful term on this forum should be "stuff", not "shit", i dont know about you but i dont think there is any use for swearing on the internet lol, but good luck finding your beaver, if that were me i would've gone for the head or something on small game like that so you wouldnt have this problem:)

Building yer own stuff is great !!!
I sure aint perfect. Make mistakes about every day. Try to learn from them and not do'em again.!
I dont hunt anything I aint gonna eat (but thats just me...and I'll eat alot-o-stuff)
I've made hits on animals that looked good to me and never found anything.
It is the worst thing that can happen to a hunter - but if you hunt -especially with a bow - things like this come up.
Strive to only make shots you are totally confident in and you will minimize the dark side.
I was really just curious about this beaver bow whacking thing...
Peace Man :cool:

Lots of good dogs dog this, I wouldnt let him go to the flush with me though you do that also its safer and better for his hearing long term if your in front of him when you shoot.

My dogs hunt Kansas and wisconsin without any difficulty dont worry about the setter for grouse she will learn the difference.

Here in Alabama ( USA ) where I live, there is no closed season on Beaver - you're encouraged to kill them because they are largely viewed as pests. Anyway, I've never shot a beaver with a bow and arrow but I've shot plenty of them with a rifle and if you don't see him floating after you shoot him you can forget about finding him - he'll swim under water to a hole and die in some place where you'll never find him.

I dont think so. My business is doggy detailers mobile grooming and i do cats as well. i do get people to call with cats. you could also call it "whatever name pet grooming, then they will know for sure that is for pets not just hounds.

I have a question for some of the in the know guys out there. If you kill a deer on the quota hunt and it isnt 15 inches wide what happens if you check it in. Is there a universal standard or does it come down to the CO on duty?
