Anybody ever find anything like this? In all the years I've been trapping I don't recall ever running into this. The knife hit this "thing" embedded in the leather just like how you find a puss pocket. But this one was hard like a bullet and ensconced in the leather. Completely calcified.

Lead, puss yes but nothing like that!


I love the smell of burning spruce---I love the sound of a spring time goose---I love the feel of 40 below---from my trapline I will never go!

Maybe I'll sell it on Ebay for about the same amount of money somebody would pay for Elvis' old pocket comb.

I am curious if any other big beaver producers have seen this before. I'm somewhere over 7000 for beaver in my lifetime and I believe it's the first I've seen.

How hard is it? I would assume soft if calcium. I suppose there is a slight possibility it could silica. If so you might want to have it worked into a setting on a ring.

It is extremely hard but light weight. At some point I'll weigh it on my gram scale.

This is the pelt it came out of, a nice blanket female off the Willamette river near where I live. You can see the kind of puss-pocket hole that it came out of; but there was no puss associated with it.

Id wager that's been there for a long time, probably a year. Probably have something in the center of it if you cut it open or had it x-rayed

According to a biologist/archaeologist friend of mine, people frequently have calcifications in them like that. They find a lot of calcifications at ancient burial sites.

Cool.
Here is a thought! Maybe it's a piece of clam shell or fish bone small rock? that healed into a cut. Then over time wore it round and crusted over?
Like others Ive found bird shot and 22 bullets in beaver and other critters. In deer found healed in broad heads. Never seen any thing hard was usually like scar tissue ball or puss around items.
Maybe have mineral person look at it with a loop?

Cut my foot on a beer bottle when I was in college.
Had something similar come up months later but significantly smaller.

Doc that cut it out said it was some type of foreign body that my body had calcified.

SniperBBB has the right idea

That looks like a kidney stone from Kentucky.
