    Default Question about beaver hunt

    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?

    Hi man,

    they are not protected everywhere in europe.

    And a small question to SPIKER: Why are you shocked. **** 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.

    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.
