Pulling Over A Small Beaver Dam

Aim pulling over a small beaver dam on the Osgood.

 

The Osgood is in the boreal biome which mostly consist of confierous trees. Beavers prefer hardwoods so they tend to not be able to produce large or frequent dams in this ecosystem. By the time they make a small dam, they've eaten and used most of the hardwoods in a general area and must move on. They essentially eat themselves out of house and home.
