Muskrats...How long to trap one spot?
We are trapping a couple spots on a small (15 feet wide) creek, a small run and a pond.
Is there a rule of thumb for how long you keep traps in a given area. In the small run we caught some 'rats the first night and first morning but nothing since.
Those were set on opening day. I just don't want to waste time and gas and I don't want to thin the population either.
Should we pull out of an area then come back in a week or two to that same area?
