If a tie, I had originally said I will pm Paul a number between one and ten. Whoever picks closest to the number wins.

Seems fair.

Dang,
You would make this contest when I am down and out. Don't think I will win any contest with a no bending, no twisting, no lifting order from the DR. I can lift up to 8 pounds. Not much of a tail on an 8 lb beaver. smile Had two over 80 lbs two years ago ( two biggest I had ever caught ) that had some massive tails if you could find a place to measure where there weren't any bit marks. This looks like a lot of fun and gives me another post to look at each day along with the diary posts.
Joe

Lol I've got one that measures at 7 1/2". When I try to download any picture of it, it tells me the file is too big. Is there any other way to get it downloaded?

There he is, he only weighed 52 pounds. If your wondering what the white zip tie is for this beaver is being saved for the landowner. I caught it out of his pond and he wants a full body mount for his cabin. Caught on Backbreaker but you all probably already knew that lol.

Nice beaver!!

So, we officially have a second a third prize. Brian (brianmall) has donated this awesome beaver fur hat.



He caught the beaver, tanned it, and made it all himself. Looks quite well made. Brian will ship this hat to the SECOND PLACE winner.

We also have Shawn, aka (trapset) who has agreed to donate a set of RTS trapsetters. Google these if you don't know what they look like. Definitely a great help on the line. These trapsetters will be the THIRD PLACE prize.

Awesome guys, and a big thanks to Brian and Shawn!

Got some big tails in already, go get em,and keep the flattails coming!

The rules are easy. Post a picture of the biggest beavertail on a beaver you have caught THIS YEAR, and if you have the widest beaver tail by the LAST DAY IN FEBRUARY, you win.

A simple picture of the tail, with a tale measure across it, along with a picture of you and the beaver will do. Please make sure the measurement picture is clear, and accurate.

Only one person can win, and as for a prize, I will personally send a HALF DPZEN BELISLE 160S to the winners address. In the case of a tie, I will send a number between 1 and 10 to Paul Dobbins via private message. Whoever is closest wins.

Here is an example of a beaver tail I have in my shop. It is not for the contest, just an example of how to measure.

Happy trapping and good luck!


I'l


Is this still part of the rule?

Yea. If Paul could make this stick to the top that would be great.

Varmint shooter, I had said "on a beaver", origonally to ensure there was no cheating. Not saying you would, but a picture of a tail attached to a beaver pretty much guarantees it is a fresh one. When was the beaver caught?

And to everyone, even if your beaver tail isn't a winner per we, post large ones anyway, because keep in mind thT there is a second and third prize!
