Awesome job bud. Keep at it. Sometimes it takes me a few days to get the whole line up and running.


Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Yeah, going to bring some more of my 110s that are rigged on Hagz spring clips and some carrots. I need to experiment and see if they'll go after carrots since I would like to get more traps out.

Might also experiment with some lure and see if they'll come to it too or not. Lots of places to put traps but no feed beds or toilets and the huts have very little water by them.

First catch/haul of the 2022/2023 trapping season! 1 mink and 13 rats, the mink is my first caught in a trap, and a colony trap at that. I'm so excited, I got the wood stove in the fur shed drying the rats to be skinned tomorrow night. Didn't set any traps today but plan to go out tomorrow and check/set a whole bunch more since we're already going to get some ice this weekend and maybe some snow next week.

What a great start to your season. And a Mink to boot, congrats.

Keep posting, we like to see updates. Make sure to post some put up fur also.

I love trapping rats more than anything, learning how to trap mink this year though. Thanks!

Will post put up fur when I get to putting up, got the rats from today drying in the shed now to be skinned tomorrow night after I go set more traps. Need to make a drying rack, was thinking of a 2x4 frame with chicken wire stapled on top, so the air can go below because right now I have them sitting on cardboard on the floor.

It seems to be that way, first time trying blind sets and it worked!

Yes, it is, going to set more traps tomorrow since I saw a lot more feed beds open up today on the same slough. Also on a slough just up the road to the north, I saw some rats while checking a blind set 110 I had set up.

I made my wife a frame just like that for drying wool fiber on after washing. It has also served double duty as a drying rack for rats, mink and otter.
