Beaver bounty is back in Alcorn County

CORINTH — The beaver bounty is back.

Alcorn County landowners can begin signing up for the beaver control program, which is designed to protect revenue-generating acreage.

The bounty is $12.50 per tail individually wrapped in clear plastic and frozen until collection day. Landowners may trap the beavers themselves or use the services of a trapper. Bimonthly collection days will be scheduled beginning in January.

Last year’s demonstration program was considered a success with 126 landowners participating and 605 beavers eliminated on more than 9,200 acres.

The Daily Corinthian reports the county provides funding for the program, which is administered by the Alcorn County Soil and Water Conservation District.
