3rd Annual Trapperman Beavertail Challenge!

3rd Annual Trapperman Beavertail Challenge! - 11/27/18 04:44 PM

It is time for the 3rd 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 FEBRUARY, you win.

I’m adding a second category this year. Hutchy’s suggestion it is – Longest dried raccoon pelt.

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.

Raccoon Submissions

Tip of nose to tip of hair on tail stretched and dried. Picture should show tape measure clearly. Pelt should be lying flat, with no hands on the tail or head “pulling” and not be on the board when taken. We may have to adjust this as we go but lets start there.

Prizes So Far

  • 1st Place Beaver Tail - your selection of any two 4oz bottles of Dobbins products
  • 1st Place Raccoon Length - your selection of any two 4oz bottles of Dobbins products
  • Random Drawing #1 Beaver Submissions - RTS Setter donated by Trapset
  • Random Drawing #2 Raccoon 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!

Let me get this straight, it says the beaver must be caught this YEAR, well the last day in this year is December 31st. I guess we have 2 months to submit the picture's.(this is sarcasm)

Here's a suggestion, why not extend the contest to include the spring beaver season for those of use who solely target beaver in the spring?

Shoot I wish i would have known about the coon-I have a couple of 44" coon and they are dried but the tails are pleated.And the coons are all stretched on 9" wide boards-so the width must be taken into consideration as well-YES OR NO?

For those of us up North I Agree with whartontrappe. But good luck to everyone.

Re: 3rd Annual Trapperman Beavertail Challenge! - 12/08/18 01:29 PM

Suggestion on coon. Width at tail should also be considered. i.e. board used should meet industry standards.

Re: 3rd Annual Trapperman Beavertail Challenge! - 12/08/18 01:34 PM

Suggestion on coon. How about the longest bacculm? Give us southerners a chance.

If you read the rules carefully...on the beaver tail contest.....there was only TWO entries on the last day of February
So it's between Beaverpeeler and 4 Fur

sure hope I don't get a holiday over this from the Boss.

reminds me of reading the BC trapping guide on racoon season dates 10 a day from 31 March-1April.....
