Bring them to MN on the carcass and I will save you the commission! You don't even have to skin or put them up for that!

OK,
Finally had a nice day out today so we got the fur out of the freezer and sold everything to Groeny. The boys and I would like to submit three entries to this contest.

Beaver #1, Noah caught it late December.
Here is pic in the field of this beaver...


Here is same beaver #1 now in back of truck brushed up and ready for sale. Those are all XXL and larger, December caught coons behind it.


Beaver #1 tail and tape...thing had a lot of notches in it. Hey, holding the tape with one hand and taking picture with the other isn't very easy. Sorry for the shadows!


Here is beaver #2 and beaver #3, let's call them. Both were whoppers.


Took them out of freezer and they are wet from when we washed them down and hadn't dried yet. smaller one on left is still North of 50 pounds.


Beaver #2 with tail tape, this is the smaller one of two...



Beaver #3 with tail tape, the larger one of these two...



Thanks for letting us participate! FYI, we received $12 each for these three today, carcass prices.
Jim, Noah, and Gunner

Money cannot buy you happiness, buy it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.
