From the responses I see no one really knows how to make the blue bucket set for mink.

This thread is about COON bucket sets. Mink should be discussed on another thread.

What kind of thread highjacking jerk do you think I am?

Your right LOL

This Is the way the set Is suppose to be made for mink.

First you need to look for suitable water depths. If the bucket sits to high out of the water then the mink can't get up on top. So If the water Is to shallow you need to place a rock or a chunk of sod or a limb near the bucket so the mink can get on top.
You have to be careful of any current that may wash the bucket away.

Then you place some dirt on top of the bucket. Then add some dry dog food to the top of the bucket. What happens Is the birds fly down and eat the dog food and when doing so knock some off In the water. This In turn draws In crayfish and minnows to feed on the dog food. The mink then will hunt from the top of the bucket. So water depth Is very important when making this set.
You could just dump the dog food In the water and not have any bird problems. But that's the way It was explained to me.

You will probably have to add more dirt after awhile so you can get your trap bedded. And stop adding dog food so the birds won't set off your trap.

As you can see the original Blue Bucket Set was not Intended for trapping coon.
So using the Blue bucket terminology with coon sets Is probably some type of copyright Infringement.

Ten years ago I had a blue Chevy Z71 that was a real possum killer. Even added a few groundhogs during daylight hours.
