    A large beaver deceiver worked for my flashboard risers. I make them out of t-posts and either cattle panels or welded wire fencing. You will still have to clean debris off the wire every once in a while.

    Trapping the beavers works wonders as well, but, for me, they always seem to return.

    LDC has the above set up east of lot 2 on the south side of the road. Could probably swing by and check it out. I’m sure Tim ( refuge manager ) could give tips as well.

    Looked like posts and cattle / horse panels
