Can you enter more than one tail?

Say you catch and enter a big one, then catch a bigger one the next day. grin

Because that would be just my luck.

I got one with a 6 inch tail yesterday, but I'm having some trouble uploading the image from my phone. I'll try it from my compute at home.

If there happens to be another prize donation I'd suggest a mystery width. Much like a mystery weight in a fishing derby. It would bring a lot more activity and participation to the thread.

So, you are suggesting, a prize for a random width tail, say, picked entirely put of a hat? That's interesting....it would sure get a whole whack of entries. I appreciate the input. Let me think about it for a few days and I'll get back to ya.

Yes that's exactly what I'm suggesting. I trapped most of my beaver in March last year, you're gonna make me start a little sooner.

The bottom beaver is the one that's entered in the contest. The top blonde one might have the widest tail but I don't have a picture of me holding him, and I've already skinned him and turned him into groeny. I still have the tail in the freezer. As soon as I get time I'll send it off to the tannery then to gritguy for a wallet.

There's no problem with you showing a pic of a beaver in a bodygrip.

This one is from screen name "flipper" looks like one at a solid 7.5, and one at 8 even! Those look like some scrappy old beaver.

Dang!

Hmm. Flipper. There does seem to be a gap between the end of the tape, and the edge of the tail...can you perhaps hook the edge of the tape onto the tail a bit better for us? Would hate to cause an issue because of a bad camera angle.

I know it is a bit tough to do with one hand, but lets make sure the tape is hooked on for all pictures.


No rush, but let's clear this one up if we can. Text me whenever you get a chance please flipper.
