Don't tease me Rob lol. Wouldn't that be an amazing adventure!!! If by chance I didn't get one trapping I'd be ok with treeing one with hounds.


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

Since I was never able to catch a Fisher that would be a bucket list animal.

But to answer your question it would be a toss up between marten, mink or muskrat.

Bobcats on land, love to hear the growl.
Beaver in water, because it's what the mountain men did.

I would trap rats until I could not wade marshes and streams, portage canoes to places or be stable and good on the ice. Then I would shift over to a 4-wheeler line for coons which is a whole lot easier on the body.

Probably fox. I like trapping coyotes, and mink, and muskrat, and coon, and bobcat, and otter. But nothing like seeing a cherry red fox or feisty gray in a trap. But, due to low populations here, I don't target either.
