Beaver Scouting

I went out on Saturday 31st December with a friend to do some beaver scouting in our terrain in preparation for our first trip out after the New Year, (we are not permitted to hunt in Norway during 23rd Dec - 1st Jan). It has been an extremely mild winter in Norway this year and the first I've experienced without snow since I moved here nine years ago, usually my hunting terrain will have several feet of snow by now! Not that I'm complaining as it makes the hunting more bearable and I'm sure the animals have benefited being able to easily access food for a longer period without having to expend energy digging for it, so I'm hoping for a good season next year =)

As you can see from the photo's the beaver are now venturing out onto land to feed on the tree bark, you can also see where they are entering and exiting the water, so if I post over looking one of these areas where they are feeding I should have a good chance of a shot.

Winter Wonderland! =)


  1. Great pics!
    Unfortunatly in our area we a feet of snow. I guess we'll have to wait until march-april to hunt them :)

    Hopefully I'll be able to get one before the snow comes =)
