Ohio, Old fart to some.
At the beginning of the season I always have a goal I would like to meet. If I don't make it all is OK as numbers are not really that big of a deal. After the initial 3 weeks I had 77 mink in the freezer so that 100 mark was well in reach. I probably could have got there before Christmas but I had several stops that had otter sign. With our otter season coming in the day after Christmas I chose not to set them until after the 26th. Setting out a small line the last few days I finally hit the century mark. It may not be that big of a deal to some but I am really satisfied doing it in Ohio, which is not normally considered a "mink paradise".

Nice job,took alot of work. Our numbers here are good. I never had any problem catching mink so I never targeted too many. More for me were fox and coon,then coyote after they got thick.

Congrats ack, that's quite the accomplishment!


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Very well done! I remember reading and enjoying the articles Jim Spencer used to write for FFG about his mink line and his goals with 100 being a pretty good season!
