For anyone who hasn't tried it, beaver is one of the tastiest meats out there :D (Insert bag jokes here). Contrary to what somepeople say, there is a lot better meat on a beaver than the tail. I love the haunches for this receipe, because they give a much deeper flavor. This is a receipe I have used for years at reenactments and I have yet to see someone who tried it not like it. I do it all in a two quart cast iron dutch oven over a fire, but have done it at home on the stove.

Chop and brown two big yellow onions in butter.
Cube 3 pounds of beaver and sear the outside (to hold in the good flavors) with the onions in one can of beer (something darker is better, Guinness is best). Red wine works well too.
Add four chopped carrots.
Two large potatoes (cubed like the meat).
Add a dozen (or so) chopped green beans.
Add one quart of water (or more beer, your choice).
Season with Marjoram, Thyme, Basil and black and white pepper.

Let stew until the meat falls apart on a fork.
Serve with warm bread and everyone is happy (tell the hippies it is free range and even they will eat it {yes I did that}).

Nothing is better than finding a critter in your trap after packing in through the snow.
