I didn't think there was a limit on how many times you could enter, last year. A fella never knows what his next Beaver tail might look like.

One more last night. Dark night in the timber so this was the best pic I could get. I didn't get a measurement but it is smaller than the first. I'm guessing this one was about 5", give or take.

Timber hole - I need a tape measure picture to count the 2nd one, sorry.
J Staton - I saved the pic, reversed it and blew it up, are we looking at 6-3/4 or 6-13/16?

Nice catches to all so far!

Current standings:

A bit grainy. Go with the lower to be fair, I'll try to catch a bigger one. I'll shoot for the smallest about March. Hope y'all boys ain't squeamish.

Here's a boat paddle




I have better things to do than cheat in a beaver tail contest. This tail I left in the shed for a conversation piece. It's a month old now but I measured it with a flexible tape this time and asked my wife to take the picture.
Thanks DaYooper I am sure you have a job coming up

I'm on the lookout for those but on this one I'm ok with the submitted measurement.

Reasoning: you can tell it's because his finger is holding down the right side for the close-up. With the center hump of the tail it pushes the other end of the tape measure up, should that be flattened there it'd be where it needs to. We all only have two hands while we're out on the line and I don't want to start nickle & diming folks for a fun, benefit of the doubt t-man contest. That said - if it's egregious we can call it out.

Nice catch varmintshooter!

Almost cut it off before I remembered it was my widest so far. I used the panorama option on my phone which gets both ends of the measurement but makes the overall pic kinda wonky.

You don't let any of them grow up Mike. You got to let them get more than a yearling size before you catch them.
