Many times, especially after cleaning out a beaver hut. Mink hunting muskrats or just exploring.

Yes, have caught mink in 330's. We have some pretty big ranch mink on the loose here. Also have caught several mink that triggered the trap with a large trout in their mouth!

I've probably caught more mink in 330's and 280's than in any other trap. All set on crossovers. I can pile up the mink when I want to but with today's prices I haven't bothered. Did pick up a big female two days ago in a 330 belisle.

My biggest surprise was a MOLE in a 330, still puzzled over that one.

Star-nosed variety?

Mink are easy to catch in a coni underwater. I believe they grab the trigger or hit it with their back foot when swimming. Same can't be said when you stick that coni on land.

I've caught some pretty crazy things in a 330, but never a mink. I've gotten lots of muskrats, a couple northern pike, even caught a cormorant once.


Growing old should have taken longer.

Got a Marten in a 280 this year. A blind otter set on dry land.


Made it almost 3 years without censor!
