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 MARCH, 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 won’t 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 – 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.

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.

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!

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.

I will be out of town until 1/15 with no internet, but if you drop me a PM with your email address or phone, whichever is best, we can connect then and I'll post pics for those who need it.

Without further adieu - posting for MB Coonguy.

“82 lb beaver-this is my biggest beaver I have caught-next biggest was 71 lbs. It was caught way out on the marsh-lived in a bullrush lodge-no trees for miles”

I was finally able to catch a few beavers. The first was 53 lbs, second was 57lbs, and the little guy weighed in at 19 lbs. Not big tails, but I'm in.
