I do not think that there is another quality so essential to success, as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.

prc2 That is a great one day catch I doubt if I have caught 6 rats in a season over the last 10 years And I love seeing a mink in one of my traps .I generally get a couple each season I never had 3 in one day . So what you have in those pictures is a season's worth of fur for me .Thanks for showing me that I need to work a little harder

Good job. What's your secret to catching no coons? That's the thing about pockets, they are a good mink set, but death on coons.


Right now I’m having amnesia and déjà vu at the same time. I think I’ve forgotten this before.

PCR2- With all nthe mink you've caught over the years in your n PA streams, what's some of the most unusual catches? Have you ever caught some giant buck or off colored such as piebald or albino...?

I used to love finding mink holes in streams under bridge snow banks after Christmas and into Jan a ways and laying 110s on against them. Easy peasey sets, just don't do it before the next big blizzard comes in or you might be recovering gear in the spring!

Wow cool! We got thunder ice rain today, and I got soaked to the drawers, TWICE.

Once running the line and again working out back of the house later.

More hunting in the AM...


Keep your boots dry and your powder too.

I remember when a fur check was reality.....now I'm just trapping for the love of it.

Nice haul! I have yet to get one in my little creek this year. Right now need the level to drop back down so my best locations work again.

Nice job pcr! Indeed.

I'm hunting deer this week so I sprung everything, and it's all under water right now anyway.

100 sets, I used to run lines like that oh so many years ago. I think I need to start again.

100 sets but at 25 stops.no bait,all blind sets.comparing footholds to coni's and how many i get in bottom edge and stuff-redneck research in a bad market.100 isn't many for a mink line.would be closer to 300 if mink were hot.years of avoiding coon really shows,i get very few.rats-was gonna chase them but i proved the first 2 days no more than there are i can catch just as many in my blind sets.had a rat mink ate yesterday-he's as good as dead.

Thanks for taking the time to take pics. I haven't used many bottom edge sets, I just have no confidence in them for me. I guess a guy gets better at them the more you set them.

Thanks for taking and posting pics, fun seeing different areas of the country and what it looks like where other people are trapping.
