That is what I thought you would say.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

Way to go!
Numbers like that aren't even a pipe dream for me this year but at least somebody is getting after them LOL

Really appreciate all the posts on here of guys still dropping the hammer even though prices are low... it's a real example of how resilient, hard working and stubborn North American trappers are


Just happy to be here.

You must have a really low muskrat population or your rat to mink ratio would be a lot higher. How many rats have you caught in those pocket sets?

After targeting mink for the last 8 to 9 years I have started to notice an increase on the rat population. These all come from a 7 mile radius from me. Normally I catch around 5 incidentals but yhis year it spiked to 30.

Also for those that think I am in a "eden" for mink, it really is nothing special. I would be surprised if I could not do this in any of ohio , north eastern Indiana or Southern Michigan.

Over a 100 a day early on then around 60 towards the end.
I need more ground..if I could just expand the 7 mile radius to 10 would help. A 100 in 3 weeks is possible. Maybe someday....
