Beaver Control

Beavers are considered a nuisance animal. Their busy beaver/cutting activities can cause damage to our natural resources which can lead to severe flooding issues. It’s important to keep their activity under control. The Crawford County Conservation District participates in the Arkansas State Beaver Control Program. A bounty of $10/beaver tail will only be paid on beavers trapped in Crawford County. To be eligible for this bounty, trappers must have a valid trapping license, a Crawford County beaver permit and be a resident of Crawford County. If you would like to get a beaver permit to trap beavers in Crawford County, contact the Crawford County Conservation District.  There is no cost for obtaining a Crawford County beaver permit.  If you are having beaver issues on your property, you can contact the Crawford County Conservation District for a list of Crawford County Beaver Trappers available to assist with the problem.
