One pound doesn't normally take too many beaver at all. We have caught 50-60 lb. beavers that had a pound of castor and then some. Not every beaver's castor is created equal though. You will catch some big beaver that have little castor for their size and vise versa, same thing goes for small beaver. It's just part of the hobby. Here is a link to NAFA on what they require for the sale of castor:

Scroll down to page 23.
