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!

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!

49.62 pound Southern Illinois beaver.

I save skulls from all critters caught and I have never had a problem with beaver biting traps and busting their teeth up until this year. Every single one of them has chipped their teeth up this year. Using MB750s on drowning rods.

Updated Standings. Keep it up lads!

Bit of housekeeping:
- please provide measurements for me or I'm taking my best guess from the image.
- looks like 13" is going to be a close one for the length category, if you get up in that range make sure it's clear in the pic please.

This is our first good size beaver ever. He weighed in at 50 pounds exactly.

Not the biggest tail but a lot of character to it!

Width 7 3/4" or so. 2nd toad in as many days at the same set. Rig, location, and construction of the set was all the work of my 13 year old son and Backbreaker. Proud Pops moment for sure.
