BEAVER BOUNTY

The R.M. still offers a bounty on beavers but before trapping you must receive approval from your councilor. There is a grant available to the R.M. to help compensate for this but it can only be claimed on beavers trapped by someone with a valid trappers license and therefore there are two bounty amounts.

Bounty with Trappers License - $50.00 per beaver

Bounty without License - $25.00 per beaver

In order to claim the bounty please contact your council member to ask for approval to trap in problem areas. If approval is given, once your done trapping you will need to have the tails counted by the councilor and a claim form completed. If you have a valid trappers license a copy of it will need to be provided to the R.M. office.

GOPHERS

2% liquid strychnine has not been available for over a year now and March 2023 was the last date for approved use. Another product on the market for gopher control is Rozul RTU – click here for brochure with information on the product.  This product is available for purchase at different Co-op’s and Ag stores but the R.M. has brought in a pallet of 50 pound bags in order to get better pricing for ratepayers. You can also find info on building bait stations here. 

 

The cost is $223.00 per bag plus PST and GST. If you are interested in purchasing this you need to contact the office to place your order and then pickup arrangements will need to be made with the Foreman as the product is being stored at the RM shop.  

 

As well the Gopher Control Program, through the Sustainable Canadian Ag Partnership, has been renewed for this year. Funding from this program is available to producers for up to 50% of the costs of registered gopher control product expenses. In order to claim this rebate the claim form must be submitted to the R.M. office prior to July 31st. Click here for the claim form.
