Get one or two weird catches every year.
Keeps trapping interesting.

Well that'd be a pleasant surprise!


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

Nah you won't get a fox to go into a 120. Might try a 220 and that might still get refusals.


Life sure is tough when you don't learn from the mistakes of others.

Do you do good with baited mink boxes? A lot of guys have told me they don't work.

I'm a multi species trapper,boxes work great for my style of trapping.
I dont go out of my way to trap mink,I take them when trapping beaver,marten etc.when I see sign.Like many other type of sets good mink box locations produce mink every year if set.
Most I would catch on a high year would be 40 or so,on low years maybe 15-20.Mink normally go under the ice here in late december.Some get caught in marten boxes if there is a jan thaw,or in feb when the bucks wander looking to breed.

There are some here who target mink when prices were high and trap with boxes before freeze up-they would normally take 60 or so in a couple weeks with boxes.
Baited boxes for mink have to be set where mink use.

Ok, that makes sense. I bought a lot of newspaper tubes from a trapper getting out of it who used to trap in Wyoming for marten and was planning on using them for mink.
