I didn't realize that beavers would venture out onto a lake like Winnipesaukee, but one did try to move into the cove on the mainland where we keep our boat. A professional trapper had to be called in. Too bad for mister beaver.

Beavers can build a lodge in a boat house that can only be removed with the help of heavy equipment. Most often that means hiring a contractor who is going to charge you for, maybe 2 men, a backhoe and a barge. I heard, in a class i took, that beaver lodges are so well built that it can stand the attack of a grizzly bear.

Excellent picture! There are lots of trees down by beavers in the marshy area right off Alvah Wilson Rd. in Gilford. The size of some of the trees they took down is amazing. Looks like they planned on damning the Gunstock River, but no sign of damn? Weird, I have no idea were they took the downed trees. (or how they could have moved logs the size of these) It's all fresh cuts, and every time I walk along the river I look for any sign of a damn being formed. Nothing!
