NOW THATS A BEAVER! 101 lbs
« on: February 14, 2017, 11:07:23 AM »
Check this big guy out!

Grabbed this pic of the Alaska Trapping Association Facebook page. Looks like it came out of Saskatchewan Canada. Weighed in at 101 lbs! I've personally seen them hit low 70s but this is huge. You'd need a sheet of plywood to stretch it.
If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.

Holy cow!  That must be one of those beaver-grizzly hybrids.

Monster for sure!


I recall being in Naknek Alaska and on this little lake I saw a bear that after quite awhile, was actually a beaver.  Just couldn't believe how big he was.

To be that heavy it has to be pregnant. I caught one the other day with 5 kits in it so it is that time of year.

I'm guessing there's more you can do with big beavers?

The biggest I ever caught was about 20 years ago weighted in at 86 pounds.  I catch two that day the other was 52 pounds, three days later a 77 pound-eeer.
Six months before that I had a massive heart attack.  Putting that one in the truck I was thinking I was going to have another one.

There was a guy up on the Colville Indian Reservation, that was a snare-man that I knew.  He became the Judge up there.  Chuck VanDyke knows who I'm talking about and maybe Bruce does too.  I can't remember his name.  Anyway he told me here a couple years back before he died that he caught two 125 pounders.  I believe him, he was that kind of guy.

I'll dig up a pic of one I trapped about 4 years ago that I estimated over 100 lbs. It looked about that size and was full of little ones. I've trapped several over 60#

That will be way beyond a super blanket. I would not send that to auction because it will get thrown in with all the other Supers and you will get paid that price. Of that size there must be a better market for it.

Did you take a good look at that beaver.  The hide has a couple of huge rubs.
That one would sell as damage blanket I would think.   :twocents:

I've caught beaver at 82# and Ted has caught 80# they both used a half sheet of plywood to stretch, all the way to the edge. That one pictured would take at least 3/4 sheet.

An old-timer that that introduced me to trapping in the Wind River area used to get over 120 beavers a season - don't think any were close to that size.  He stuffed his freezers full and skinned as time allowed.
