My first beaver ever. I set Monday on the first day of beaver season here in PA. I was pretty tickled when I pulled him out of the water. He weighed about 48-49 by the bathroom scale=)

Nice! I remember my first one. It was to this day, one of the biggest beaver I have ever caught. I remember thinking "what have I got myself into?! This thing is huge!!!" Three hours later and about a hundred holes, I had the gristley old bugger on a board.

Congrats on the beaver. No doubt you will remember it forever also!

I wish we were going by length and not width. Caught a super blanket with a tail 13 3/4 inches long but it was only 6 inches wide.

Hey guys, I am being g a bit tardy with the update. I'll get to it.

I will say however, that the prizes just got better! A forum member who wishes to remain anonymous has agreed to send me 100 bucks American to be used for prizes for this competition!

I haven't decided how to use it yet, but I will recap everything , and see what prize needs more items. Lots of prizes, so go get those flat tails!
