Post subject:  Freshly Trapped Beaver

I trapped this beaver (yearling or kit??) in far Northern Minnesota. I haven't had a chance to weigh it yet, but my guess is 35-40 lbs.

Nice catch. Let us know what it weigh's when you get it weighed.

Well, I was off a tad, but the beaver sure felt heavy when I stretched it out for a shot.

The critter was just shy of 30 lbs.

Thanks for the input!

Not to worry CB....we all have carried out game that weighed MUCH MORE by the time we got out than it did when we first picked it up. :lol:

Yep people usually guess heavy. One of my way's of making spare pocket money is to bet with guy's on the weight of game.

The longer you got to pack beavers the more they weight and they have bin known to put on a few pounds just on the hike out from the pond lol :lol:
