For the NAFA fur sales do I need a viewing window on mink?

Probably not but a window is preferred for grading purposes. If you desire the best possible grade it's best to provide the inspection window.
The only constant in trapping is change so keep learning.

If you board your mink correctly you will automatically form a window with NO cutting.
