It is time for the 2nd Annual Trapperman beavertail challenge!

I played secretary last year and traded some messages w/ Hutchy this year. He's busier than snot so we're going to keep this gem he started going.

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 tape measure across it, along with a picture of you and the beaver will do. Please make sure the measurement picture is clear, and accurate. Tail only submissions wonít count. I'll post updated standings from the thread submissions periodically so we won't have to hunt through. Multiple entries allowed.

Prizes - 1 anonymous donor is putting up 2 $50 gift cards, Trapset is donating an RTS setter and I'll purchase the Dobbins products

  • 1st Place - $50 F&T Gift card (fntpost.com) & your selection of any two 4oz bottles of Dobbins products
  • Random Drawing #1 - $50 F&T Gift card (fntpost.com) & your selection of any two 4oz bottles of Dobbins products.
  • Random Drawing #2 - RTS Setter (rtssetter.com)


No matter the size Ė send it in! Had some possum sneakers last year so only beaver tail submissions will count wink

Happy trapping and good luck!

Dang! Skunt one yesterday with a tail that would have been competitive. Actually thought when I got her out of the snare, she would have done well in last years contest. Have more to catch though so maybe I'll get a competitor.

The biggest tail I saved from this fall is 6 1/8" in width, but 13 3/4" long. My beavers must just have skinny tails!

I'm on the board! 6 7/16" Wide

Placed 8 sets Saturday but only one connected. We iced up here a couple of weeks back but all water is open now. The beaver don't seem to be patrolling their dams but instead sticking close to the house making it difficult for me. We'll see how this week goes. Probably have to pull the sets before the end of the week due to ice.

First beaver together with my son Richard, he was so excited he was dancing around it! Tails in my area are pathetically narrow lol.

Here is my biggest tail for the year. 5 1/2" - not a monster but a good sized beaver. My 9 year old son John pulled it out of a Comstock.
