2nd ~ 2018/19 Trapping Season Contest ~ Longest Mink
« on: November 14, 2018, 09:02:40 PM »

Okay Guy & Gals,
I thought I would start the Second Contest.  This one will be for the longest mink.

Rules are the same, post a picture of your mink with some kind of measuring tool (tape or ruler) from tip of nose to base of tail on here.

Prizes:
1st Place ~ One dozen (12) Wood Mink Board with wedges, plus one each NAFA & FHA Fur Pelt Handling Manuals,
plus one “Top Dollar Fur Handling Mink DVD” by Mike Matney, showing Adam Stowell skinning and putting up mink
plus one Professional Cleaned Mink Skull.

2nd Place ~ 1/2 dozen (6) Wood Mink Board with wedges,  plus one each NAFA & FHA Fur Pelt Handling Manuals,
plus one “Top Dollar Fur Handling Mink DVD” by Mike Matney, showing Adam Stowell skinning and putting up mink.

3rd Place ~ Three (3) Wood Mink Board with wedges, plus one each NAFA & FHA Fur Pelt Handling Manuals.

Contest runs until the 28th of March. We know its not the end of season but a couple days before the Winter Rendezvous.

* Winner can pick up his or her prize at the Winter Rendezvous/Fur Sale/Spring Business Meeting on the 30th of March *

So there you go second contest, 5 months to come up with a biggest beaver tail and largest Mink!  Good Luck, have a happy and safe season.

Is the measurement after the mink has been put up, or before skinning?

 Got our first mink of the year yesterday.  24" in the round. Curious what he'll measure when put up.
In your hearts enthrone Him; there let Him subdue
All that is not holy, all that is not true
Crown Him as your Captain, in temptations hour
Let His will enthrall you, in it's light and power

She'd already gone to bed. Even this wouldn't have been good enough had she seen.

Looks like an average male? 

I've never measured a mink so I am looking forward to this contest.

In tree service work we have a saying, "an inch is as good as a mile!" for tight quarters work around structure like barns sheds fences and homes. No reason we can't say "a hair is as good as a record!"  For trapping :chuckle:
