If you find those things, you're probably in good shape. Keep in mind, if the chew is brown or gray, ignore it.
Fresh chew is bright.
*Rule of thumb: You must find at least one occupied den/lodge prior to trapping them. If you cannot find one,
there is no place for them to live, and there probably aren't any beavers living there.
*It might be a good idea to take only two beavers out of a colony at a time, so they can reproduce and you can
catch some next year. If you just want the beavers gone, go get em.
*Be patient. If they hear you splashing around in the water they will be spooked and probably won't come out right
