New WSTA Official Weigh-in Record Book
« on: November 25, 2018, 08:24:31 PM »

Since Ed brought up the idea for the weigh in for the biggest beaver, I was asked by a long-time life member if we could keep some kind of a record for the biggest animal.  So I said, you bet

So this season take a weight of all of your animals and give them to me.  I am starting a record book and we will make it official some how.
You need to have it weighed in on a certified scare if possible and a witness.  Post it here (picture of it on the scare) but remember to send the info to me.
JC   :hello:

When you send it to me here is what I need:

Your name:
Date of catch:
species:
Badger
Beaver
Bobcat
Coyote
Mink
Muskrat
Nutria
Pine Marten
Raccoon ............ I have one already ........ 28.5 pounds certified scare
Red Fox
River Otter
Skunk
Strip
Spotted
Virginia Opossum
Weasel

Where do we find a certified scale?

That's a good question.  You would have to find a place like a butcher shop.

If you used a fish scale like the ones you use when fishing, the problem with those (older ones) is that they could be off a pound or two and some of those that weigh ounces can be off too.  But since this is a unofficial weigh in book which I will try and get WDFW to make it official weigh in somehow, maybe one of those fish or meat (in the hunting dept) scales at Cabela's that sells for $49.99 would work.  Lets go with those.  I'm looking on the internet to see if I can find something that might work.  I'll let you know what I find.

Fred Lawrence weighed this beaver for me at 75 lbs. spring 2017.  Fred's as close as I'll ever get to a 'certified' scale.

Boarded at 75”

1 of 3 75”-80” beavers caught this year. I should’ve weighed the 80” beaver!
 For size reference: I’m 6’3”
