Anyone like to do it? If so what do you like to do to catch one? I know some people prefer a rat trap in a weasel box but that's kinda modern. Also whats your favorite bait to use? I've heard bloody fish, chicken, or liver works the best but the key is it being bloody since they are such an active little predator looking for a easy meal.

Lemon weasel call lure in a box with a rat trap. Haven't put any out in past 2 years.


Wish I had more time to trap....

Thanks, I like to fish as well so next time I stop by Walmart I will look for it since it will serve as fishing bait too

Havn't trapped weasel in many years but used chicken livers and/or frozen mice in back of weasel box. For traps it was always my junk #1 or #1 1/2 jump traps smile

A rat snap trap also works well.

Wish we had enough here to justify setting some traps!

Here in NW PA we have fair amount. I notice tracks sometimes around small culvert pipes near marshy areas, brushy ditches near farm fields & streams, pretty much same places ya might find mink. Just may trap a couple this year to tan

I wish they were worth more. We have an open season on them.
