We thank the beaver for providing us with meat for our family and fur to keep us warm. We use every part of the animal and send the furs to be tanned. The American Beaver plays an important role in our ecosystem and economy and we have a great respect for all living things in our environment. We feel good knowing we are living off the land in a managed and sustainable manner. If you have any questions about the use of fur/meat please do not hesitate to contact us and we would be happy to have a respectful conversation about it with you.
The fur industry in Canada is a highly regulated business and designed to be a sustainable practice. Traps and trapping rules are regulated to be as humane as possible that are used are humane with many older traps banned from use.
