6th Annual T-Man Beaver Tail Contest - 01/11/22 04:31 PM

It is time for the 6th Annual Trapperman beavertail challenge!

Keeping it short this year with only 1 category. I'll try to be earlier next year. We'll close entries on 4/1/22.

The rules are easy. Post a picture of the widest beavertail on a beaver you have caught.

Multiple entries allowed

Any size, post em up! 2 additional winners will be picked randomly in addition to the 1st place winner.

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.


Prizes:

1st Place Beaver Tail Width - Your choice of Dobbins 4oz Jar of Lure
Random Drawing #1 - Your choice of Dobbins 4oz Jar of Lure
Random Drawing #2 - RTS Trap Setter


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!

Really low water this year and the ice has made it a little tougher on setting beaver up.

The Mad Scientist sure keeps putting up some big guys. I hope this doesn't go by the first guy to post with that size because I have been trying to get mine uploaded ever since the contest stared. It kept telling my my pictures file sizes were to large. I think I finally have them figured out. Mine is just a little guy at 66 lbs. though. Caught in a caster mound set with a Bridger #5 CS using Backbreaker.
