Once its numbers were critically low, but with control on hunting and trapping, as well as decreased demand for fur, beaver hunting is now open in such countries as Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania Belarus and Russia. Opportunities for beaver hunting exist all year round. The best time for beaver hunting is perhaps the last months of autumn, when the animals are already wearing their winter fur, and the young of the year are grown enough to survive without parents. Historically, most beavers were harvested by trapping, but there are a few ways for a hunter to hunt the rodent with a rifle or shotgun. One such method is to sit in ambush near a beaver dam or hole, in the evening, waiting for the beavers to go out and feed. Or, you can still-hunt along the creek, from one known beaver family residence to another. An accurate centerfire rifle with a scope that gathers light well is needed, to ensure a well-placed shot that kills the rodent instantly — a wounded beaver is hard to recover. When the objective is to control the beaver numbers, hunters in Eastern Europe and the Baltic often go out after beavers in a team. Part of the team, assisted by terriers, tries to drive the beavers out of their shelter, while the other part, often with small hounds, intercepts the rodents as they make their escape. When you talk about beaver, most people think first about the fur, but in fact beaver can also be made into a delicious meal.

Located on a little side street just off the Town Hall Square. Their theme is medieval rustic since ! The upstairs was buzzing and we dined in the cavernous, brick gothic cellars, adorned with dried herbs and taxidermic heads of wild boars. We went immediately in for a main course and I went for the beaver stew. The dessert was a cheesecake and the other half opted for a very nice hazelnut cake. Despite being in the outer reaches of the cellar the service could not have been better. This is unapologetic, touristy old style Nordic dining and it is non the worse for this. Follow the bear.
