BEAVER!!!
« on: April 27, 2007, 01:32:14 AM »
Last night, me and a few of my buddies went out to my farm to hang out. we were havin a good time and at around 1:30 decided to take a tour along the pond. I carried my .17 (no scope  :'( ) and my other friend carried his ruger 10/22 ( ;D ). Anyways, we were walkin along the edge of the pond talkin whenever we hear a splash, water swish around and grass start to rustle. we headed over toward the sound ready for anything. i thought it might have been my dog until i shined my spotlight on it. it was a beaver for sure, but my light was dim so i couldnt see much of anything else. it started running away from us and me and my friend with the 22 got 20 feet apart and started walking toward it opening fire. it was dark and we went through a clip of cartridges each until my friend finally nailed him in the neck. it started flopping around, obviously the 22 wasnt a strong enough rifle  ;D . Anyways, when i got up to it i put it out of its misery with a 17 bullet through the left eye. after i shot we were positive it was dead so we walked up on it and by god it was the biggest beaver i had ever seen! we loaded it up in my truck and brought it back to my garage where we dress all our animals and put him on our scale. that thing weighed 63 lbs! thats prolly not anything compared to yalls beavers up north but it is huge for down here east texas! anyways, we cut off the tail and skinned it. we are tanning the fur and selling the tail to texas parks and wildlife. they will give you 40-50 bucks depending on how big the tail is. we went back to the battlefield this mornin and followed our trail from the night before. we chased that beaver atleast 200 yards before finally killing it. i havent had that much fun in years! and you know what the good thing is? i got paid to do it! ;D sorry guys but i just had to brag about my trophy beaver!

I could make a comment, but I won't. :roll: :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X

Sounds like a big dude though!  You should see if you can get Texas Parks and Wildlife to see if they can estimate the age of that thing.  It would be interesting to see how old it was if it was that big.  Also, 200 hundred yards, huh?  Wouldn't have been alcohol involved anywhere previous to this would there have been?  ^-^

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

im not sure john. my friend who was with me said it was a "delicacy" for eating and we could sell it but i hadnt heard of beaver tail on a menu before that. supposedly you cook it and then peel the skin or whatever is on the outside off the tail and eat the meat.tasty
