It is time for the 5th 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 or LONGEST beaver tail by the LAST DAY IN MARCH, you win.

The second category this year will be longest beaver tail.

Multiple entries allowed

Beaver Tail Width Submissions

Tail must be on the beaver! 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.

Beaver Tail Length Submissions

Tail must be on the beaver! Fold the hairs back with your hand and measure from the end of the base of the 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 Width - TBD
1st Place Beaver Tail Length - TBD
Random Drawing #1 Beaver Tail Width - TBD
Random Drawing #2 Beaver Tail Length - TBD

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

I'll post updated standings from the thread submissions periodically so we won't have to hunt through. Multiple entries allowed.

Happy trapping and good luck!

There's a few. If the weather pattern holds, no floods, theirs a place that's good on the Arkansas that is usually good for a few about a 1/4 mile from the house.
As for the beaver Saturday, got some ditch dwellers that need to go.

Thanks DaYooper! I'll have my Daughter submit it one of these days.
I've been in the competition before, this one came out of a gravel pit overflow!

Isn't a picture of the trapper required? The instruction appears to say so. I'm just curious. I have a submittal entry to post. Thanks

AJE I live in oregon and we are in a battle with the anti groups over beaver trapping. They have tried outlawing it twice with in a years time. So I really don't care to have a picture of myself posted to the top of trapper talk for the next couple months. Besides I trust you and the rest of the t-man regulars to be an honest participant in this friendly contest. Besides you can see my hands holding the tape measure anyways. Now let's see this hog of a beaver you got to post.

ooooo Doggy, huntrap247 laying down a whopper - am I looking at 11/16 or 5/8? Nice One! Even went and held over the ridge for me - thank you sir.

Nice entries TNorman, the blak spot, dirtydog & deerfly.

Gosh - we'd sure love to see your mugs lads. Stuff happens, I get it, but default to trying to get in the shot please.

Happy trapping!
