Experiments on the management of Colorado River beaver



Experiments on the management of Colorado River beaver



California Fish and Game 34(3): 115-131



This article reports a study carried on during the period 1943-1947. Total costs were $12,060.89. A total of 1,009 beaver pelts grossed $25,192.85, of which $13,131.96 was net profit, divided equally between California and Arizona. During the early stages of this inter-state project, furs were sold through resident raw fur buyers but the marketing of pelts through the fur auction exchange system was found more practicable. The number of beavers taken each year was included after the preliminary survey hunting season. Harvesting pelts on a par pelt basis proved more satisfactory than on a basis of salaried trappers. In general the animals were found to be in good condition with no evidence of disease.
