Got my first beaver this morning! I'm guessing it was about 40lbs. Tail measures 4 1/8" wide, not really a contender for the tail but I'll enter it anyway!

I finished up with two more muskrats and a Beaver this morning. The beaver catch was kind of interesting. I caught it at a muskrat toilet in a number 1 long spring with a window sash weight in the middle of the Stream as a drowner. When I arrived on site this morning and saw that the whole works was gone I raked the bottom of the stream under the overhanging brush for about 20 yards in each direction with my garden rake thinking that maybe the rat had gotten caught in some heavy current and had washed slightly downstream, or maybe a big mink stepped in and tangled up close by . I spent about 20 minutes in the five degree weather this morning raking the stream bed before expanding my search and locating the beaver hidden under some brush about 50 yards downstream. A quick dispatch with the 22 pistol was required to get a closer look at this unusual catch. Upon closer inspection the old number one Victor long spring was attached just above one rear toenail. Why the Trap or the nail never came off I don't know, but here is my 4-7/8"

entry to the beaver tail contest.

[quote=DaYooper14]Updated Standings, very strong entries fellas. Keep slogging it out, 16 days left. In the spirit of the Olympics - come on boys - a Canadian has us beat by 1/4 inch.

Are you sure that's not 8.125 centimeters?

Here's another: 52# female, I see 6 and 9/16" (maybe 5/8...). Solid middle of the pack beaver tail. Still looking for one over 8". Maybe on the next check...

Just getting to my beaver properties and first ones in the water Monday morn. Nothing quite like pulling up that drowning rod and hoping for a fat tail for the contest!
Way to stick it out arrowsmith - them cheeks look like it was 5deg! I was checking this morning and one trap had disappeared from its choke point on a fast moving creek and my heart sank. I always stake for otter. Always. Suddenly it became clear why I had an extra trap stake yesterday morning smile Perfect behind the neck catch waitin on me at the first turn of the creek.

Here was one from weeks ago, was going to wait for some open water, but I don't think we are going to get rid of the ice soon.

I've been kinda disappointed in the beaver I've been catching. I've never paid too much attention to the tail size of the beaver in my area, but everything I've been catching have long skinny tails. Nothing to compete with yall's monster.
