Caught in WI. Friends of a coworker's friend. Impressive for sure. There's another pic that shows the tail better, it is absolutely huge.

A few latent genes in that one from back when America had 600 lb beavers?

I wouldnt have killed it, thats a prime candidate for breeding 100%. No glory in wiping out a trophy with monster genetics when you can just keep breeding it out.

Better question is what trap held that thing? Its head looks too big to fit in a 330!


WISH I HAD MORE TIME TO TRAP!

I've asked my coworker for more details, he's looking for a little more information also.

The other pic I've seen is a belly side shot, and it looks like 330 marks at the neck and chest, but I'll wait for more details before I say for sure what really caught it.

I'll post more info when I get it.
