It is time for the 4th Annual Trapperman beavertail challenge!

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.

The second category this year will be longest muskrat tail.

Multiple entries allowed

Beaver Submissions

A 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.

Muskrat Tail Submissions

Tail must be on the muskrat! Fold the hairs back with your hand and measure from the end of the base of the white hairs to the tip of the tail. Picture should show tape measure clearly. Tails off the body will not count.

Prizes So Far

1st Place Beaver Tail - your selection of any two 4oz bottles of Dobbins products
1st Place Muskrat Tail Length - your selection of any two 4oz bottles of Dobbins products
Random Drawing #1 Beaver Tail Submissions - TBD
Random Drawing #2 Muskrat Tail Submissions - TBD



If you have trouble with posting images, pm me and we’ll get it sorted or posted for you.

Happy trapping and good luck!

If it's wearing spandex, does it count? Walmart has a huge population

Just curious, when spandex changes color, does that mean you need a bigger pair?

I've got a picture of me with a beaver from when I caught him earlier this season, and I still have it's tail in the freezer for some as-of-yet to be determined reason. If I take the tail out of the freezer and I measure the tail tonight and take a picture, will it still count, even though the beaver itself is long gone, and the tail is no longer attached? I think that would follow the letter of the rules (picture of me with the beaver and a picture of the tail), I'm unsure if that follows the spirit of the rules though.

Goose - Maverick here. This is for fun. I'll accept. I will drop some hammers if them tape measures are looking a little funky though.

Got this 50lb'er this morning. An awfully narrow tail for such a beaver. It's only about 4.625 at the widest point.

Off we go!

huntrap247 nailed a whopper of a rat at 11.5"

the blak spot's got the beaver tail lead at 7.188.

Quick reminders:
- Please type the measurement in your post with the pictures
- There will be a random winner drawn in each category so don't withhold the pic just because it isn't first!
- I'll have the texted additions up in a few days, sorry for the delay.
- Prizes getting an update shortly

57 lbs. Not the biggest weight so far this year but the biggest tail. It would be neat to do a competition on width plus length as our beaver just don't have wide tails.
