I was hoping for a picture of an actual beaver.

PS, I'm also starting to look forward to riding my bicycle on dirt.

You sure that's beaver, looks a lot like porcupine damage to me. Saw lots of that when I did some work on the Bruce-Milton Hydro corridor up there. I couldn't believe how common those guys were up there, always thought they were a much more northern species.

Definitely looks porcupine to me, and very common along the Humber.

pretty sure beaver, tracks go to the river into a icehole
Ok then, I'd say that's solid beaver evidence...

Interesting, I know porcupines resort to eating the softer inner bark of tree trunks in winter, didn't know beavers did the same. Shame about the damage, but how do you deter it? Spray coyote or bear piss at he base of trees that require special protection, or just let nature take it's course?

here's a pic of the hole.



we tried all kinds of sprays, i think the only thing that would help would be wire mesh.

We skied two new (to us) spots yesterday: Valens CA and the wilderness end of Christie. Both were pretty rustic and marshy and lots of fun. Even found a fresh rabbit carcass! :eek:

Not sure whether it'll be skiing or riding tonight. That 10 degree temperature flop has me a bit confused. :confused:
