Yes they will climb through a 2 1/2 inch hole. Did you not read my comment #1 in my post re box dimentions? Even fisher will try to go through the hole:

I read it, but I was just so shocked that they could get a little hole like that.

I would just build a couple to try because some regions they work and some they donít.

They work great. With a little practice you can make very good swivels for not much money. Swivels save you money.

I would think boxes would work better for you than me. Since you have more snow and colder conditions. You may get some weasels too.


Just passin through

Yeah, I am thinking of just doing trail sets with the 120s and 1.5s for mink this year. I have to build weasel boxes though because if I don't they will get snatched, so I built a prototype yesterday and am picking up more material for 11 more today, Also that bender is on my want list currently after talking to some other trappers.
