Hi Trappers I was just surfin' the net and found this web site, I've trapped for over 30 years off and on. Coonhunt alot more than trap nowadays but never pass up an opportunity to lay some steel. Made 7 sets at thanksgiving for 2 days caught 2 rats and 2 buck mink very proud that I still got it! Anyway I've got some buddies that are poundin' the beaver's right now and we all put up our own fur and know the grading sizes for everything but Beaver. Can't find how they measure at NAFA I seen where 65 in. is 3xxx lg. but how do you measure. I was thinkin' length plus width but can't find for sure. They have 1 stretched that is 44lgX 30 wide would that be 74 or am I way off! Any help would be apprieciated! :D :D thanks Jeff

Thanks Griz, I thought thats how it worked I've caught Beaver before but sold them whole. Been puttin up our coons and such for just the last 3 years ( got tired of the country buyer $5.00 coons) was a little intimidated about tryin' a Beaver but my friends went for it this year and they look good. Just wasn't sure on the stretched size I new that biggun had to be in super blanket range it was a 60 plus pounder. Thanks again Jeff :D
