Re: mink and coyote population district 12

OH YEAH coyotes! Got em bad this year. My dad shot one opening day at home in Bucks Co. I missed 2 during archery. 3 Saturdays in a row during archery I saw anywhere from 1-4 in one morning. Even in the broad day light. I was seening coyotes around 10-11am!!!! However, I (just me) haven't seen a mink at home. This late season I will really be trapping for them hard.

Re: mink and coyote population district 12

When you say you are finally getting in to them do you mean yote or mink?

Re: mink and coyote population district 12

mink.floating cage traps on major creeks and rivers seem to be the ticket.No need for digging or finding bridges.Muskrat works.Use camo traps though they are too visible otherwise.

Mink population is high, picked up 6 so far with little effort. No muskrats.

Nitefox - Floating cage traps, never thought you could catch a mink in a cage trap let alone a floating one. Sounds like an interesting set up. How about letting me ride along with you one day so that I can see this interesting set up first hand?

Re: mink and coyote population district 12

What size cage do you use though. In the video, the cage looked fairly big.
