How is the population in Ohio. I've never trapped for them or have I ever seen one in Ohio. I'm going to put a couple boxes out for my son to check after school on the property. I'm not sure if there is any around. A lot of my land is Hardwoods with some pine spots mixed in. The only creek I have is what drains out of the hills and usually dry up in the summer. I do have a main creek that's not very deep on the place and it runs parallel to a state route. My boy is 8 and were going to run a coyote and coon line on the property along with a small water line at my buddies. He is very interested in trapping this year and I'm just trying to give him something to check on his own so he feels like a man.

I have tried trapping weasels here in Ohio. I have to much trouble with raccoons. I am sure there are trappers on here that have had success.

Thanks for the help. I had already ordered a couple boxes today. Iíll let him put them out and give it a try. I got some dpís and I planned on putting them out behind the house along the drainage. I know I got plenty of coon. I usually see a couple climb down for the evening while bow hunting.

Good info. I got a patch of cattails in the creek in front of the house. Iíll report back if I have in luck. Got a good recommendation for bait. Chicken liver maybe?

I put my weasel boxes, covered, with dry grass and bird seed in them behind my house. Mice will move in and leave plenty of scent, urine and crap that will help attract weasels. I do use chicken livers, I add sodium benzonate and salt to keep fresh and somewhat thawed. I like Lenon's super all call and anise for weasel lures. Best thing is to get out and find tracks at first snow and set right on sign. Can't beat culverts, brush piles and rock piles adjacent to reeds, uncut grass fields and brushy areas are good places to look. They are a neat little critter, best of luck to you and your son!

I had a yen to trap weasels in Ohio. I trap Gallia and Jackson counties. When I googled "weasels in Ohio" I learned that they do not turn white in winter in this state. If this is accurate info, I am not interested in catching any brown-phase or pied weasels. If someone can conclusively refute this info, I'll be tickled and will put out a few sets for them.
thanks

If you get snow, they should turn white.

Snow will make a big difference,letting you know if you have any and then,where they are traveling.Set good locations as Mousey Trapper describes,till then.I like to see 2-3 sets of tracks in a spot before setting.They turn white here in late,Nov.Not sure about other states.Good luck.

I'm in Gallia county, they don't turn white here. They might up around Erie. The longtail I have for the OSTA display board is brown.

Just ask any deer hunters down if they ever seen a white snakelike thing bouncing through the woods. The answer will be no. They'd stick out like a sore thumb and get eaten. We don't have the long lasting snows that they need to stay hidden.

I figured the odds of seeing a white one were slim to none. We just don't have the cold winters in southern Ohio like we use to.

It's to me about being in the great outdoors and spending time with him. I could care less if we caught anything. I remember how I was when I trapped with my dad when I was his age. Every morning was Christmas. I know we will catch some coons and hopefully some coyotes on our other lines.

We have weasels in Ohio and white ones on occasion. It hadn't even snowed yet when I caught this one.
