Hey everyone!

It is time for the first (annual??) Trapperman beavertail challenge!

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!

Great! 'Bout time we had some spark here.

Just a suggestion: maybe change the prize to three Belisle #330s, something beaver trappers could use. Same cost.

Tell you what . . . if the winner is south of the Canadian border, I'll kick in half the shipping.

This is a great idea. Our beaver season does not start until 12/26, but I will see what I can find then.

Ok, twist my arm. My Christmas present to someone. Three belisle 330s. If anyone else wants to donate a prize, (and is good for it and won't back out), please pm me, and I will add it. Maybe we can even make a second and third prize?

Let's do three belisle 330s and two 160s for first place! Good idea!

That will be final for first place, and a good idea because it is a beaver competition, and 160s are a good all around trap.

Yea, if you get a larger one than previous, enter away! And thanks for the offer on shipping costs! Again, if anyone wants to donate anything else, pm me. We can make this a pretty cool contest I think!

So it is just a width measurement,not length and width?

Boco, I figured let's keep it simple. I actually got the idea from, I think it was the timmins trap council Facebook page. It looked cool, so the credit for the idea is not mine.
