    Yeah I have tried hunting them but they only come out at night. Its illegal to hunt for anything after sunset unless you're hunting coons.

    We hired a trapper for our VT beavers once, but then I decided my Savage 1899 in .300 Savage and Winchester 94 in .32 Win.Spc. made for pretty good traps.

    I'm with jay. I also trap on my friends land for controling them. Use a size 330 trap and if its legal, you an alter the dam. Tear out the dam just a little wider than the trap. Then get some sticks and set them up around the trap to make sure they won't go around. Most states say the the conibears have to be underwater but check your regulations.

    I think the easiest and most efficient way is with conibear traps.
