OK, the winner doesn't get a prize...just a hardy "Atta boy (girl)". The first pic is hint #1, with another hint coming in a few hours. Guess how much castor (wet weight) in grams this beaver has.

For the metrically challenged 454 grams to the lb.

This beaver was my last beaver of the season caught two days ago. A 55lb male.

176 grams. Sure looks like your beavers are bow legged.. get one that looks like yours about twice a year if lucky. Sarge

A pound and a quarter! I'm mathematically challenged. 1.25x454=567.5 grams (I think).

OK, here's the final clue prior to the reveal which will be Friday 3/15/19 at 9:00 Pacific time.

Also I'm going to add a prize after all. One bottle of my homemade bobcat lure deluxe. (Has aged civet musk, castor, and otter musk among other ingredients).

I'd prefer the knife over the prizes.
Actually castor is sold in pounds and ounces through both auction houses.

my guess is 1 pound 3 ounces or 540 grams dried weight. Wet weight 675 grams final answer, lock it in.

Saw one of those come through the grading table 2 weeks ago, nothing like a 100$ castor
