Geez, I thank you and everyone else that has supported my efforts with equal efforts of their own. Together it seems we can make a difference but divided we don't stand a chance. Thanks for the compliment - that makes it worthwhile.

Don your truly top notch trapper in my book. I look up to you in so many ways. Not only have you made me a better trapper but a better person. My whole outlook on trapping has changed. For that I am very grateful. God bless you.

I tried to buy a copy of these for quite some time, but no one had them for sale. I even contacted Mr. Space and HE didn't have any! Long story, but Mr. Space and Mr. Powell agreed to make them available for a limited run. The dvd sleeve is signed by Eric Space.

I have started to watch them, but things got a little hectic around here. The portion I did see contained a LOT of good info, and I'm grateful to Mr. Space and Mr. Powell for making them available. I'll be watching the rest of it this weekend!

if you're looking for Disney/Pixar-quality production values, save your money. But if you are really interested in catching mink, you'll probably learn a lot from this dvd....I know I did!

Lots of great info! Now I want to snare mink. The way he grabs live mink with gloved hands scares me, but I loved it. Thanks Eric, and Don for making this possible.

money well spent the information passed on was outstanding lol I see what you guys ment about his jacket pockets you hardly ever see him carring any thing but always has the stuff needed to make a set without moving much if any. That dispatch method still has me shaking my head! Im with you woodsman, I don't think im brave enough either

Tried for years to get a copy of Eric Space's videos without any luck. Now I have a copy and it was worth the wait. The simpler the better was how he described his snaring and he does make it look simple. The tip on converts was worth the price and that is just one tip in a video filled with tips.

Got my dvd yesterday in the mail. Im so dissapointed! (Not!!)
Poor Eric, I feel so sorry for him being over run with mink like that.
And the bear and 4 cubs, and the two bucks that about ran over him.
Why does he have to make it looks so easy?
Heck, hes checking his snare line and has to slow up to allow a buck mink to get caught in his snare.

Don & Eric
Thank you so much for this dvd. This is simply amazing to watch his techniques and locations where he makes sets.
This one of the best investments I have ever made.

Glad you like it. This thread is now normal and will no longer be at the top. Get in touch soon if you want one.

"all conditions being about equal, 75% of the mink run the left bank of the stream as you face upstream"

interesting quote from the DVD, though I might have left a word or two out

What's interesting to me is this holds true on many streams and sloughs I trap, not it being a left bank thing, but that one side is favored over the other, even though from my perspective conditions appear to be equal.
