Flipper's pics looks like two measurements of the same tail based on the damage on the tail. Second pic does not look like the tape is started up tight on the edge of the tail.

Official picture of flippers entry. I have zoomed in, and see 7 7/8"

Good for first so far.

This is the first time for me doing a contest like this, so bear with me if we need to add a rule or something. Remember, let's keep this fun, and maybe it can become an annual thing, if Paul allows.

So, id like to add two small things. One, a cloth tape as seen in flippers picture is easiest to use, as the ridge in the tail tends to kink a steel tape.

Second, if you have a contender beaver tail, please freeze it, in case things get really close!

Also, please remember that this contest is partially based on your own personal honor. Not sure how you could cheat, but for me, a few traps isn't worth the inner feeling of guilt I would have knowing I won a contest based on cheating. Again, this is a few like minded people trying to have some competitive fun.

Thanks all, and happy trapping!

Hutch

Also, not trying to play forum god here, but if you have any contest lr issue with an entry, to avoid it becoming a Lynch, could you all possibly pm me?

Next year I will post the contest rules a bit more succinctly. I didn't think this in depth about it before I started this lol

Yeah, you're doing a good job buddy. I have to say I'm impressed with the near 8" tail. I have got lots of 7.5 inchers over the years (all from the same local) but I doubt I ever hit 8".

I have a question for Flipper: Was that a pond or lake beaver, or a creek or river specimen? I have a theory about wide beaver tails that I have been entertaining for years and am curious if his entry coincides with that theory.

River beaver river goes thru town so there is very limited trapping on 6 miles of river. This was A damage beaver in someone's back yard. I normally only trap. Beaver in the spring.

Dang, that blew my theory, but thanks for the info. I tend to get my widest tails in lakes and ponds and get narrower ones on the rivers. One impressive tail there!

You're doing a good job Hutchy! One thing I learned from running fantasy football with my buddies, if there is a loophole then somebody is gonna jump through it! All you can do is learn as you go and refine the rules from year to year.....
