I know muskrats have been scarce except in isolated areas of PA for quite some time. What's going on in your area? I just broke the 30 mark this morning and it took me a lot of miles and time to get there. My season started off great and I figured it would be promising, I didn't set heavy and tried to milk out as many as I can, but that's falling off. I know it's not worth it money wise but I can't get enough of trapping muskrats. Is anyone having success or grinding out a rat line or just a few incidental sets on the way hoping to get a few? Please share your experience (without location please)
well I finally found a spot that has em. Tough to find down here in upper bucks. At least access is tough to find to property that might have them. I only have one. My question is now that I found some, what is a good number to trap? I would like to have the chance year after year and do not want to trap them out. Looks like a localized colony. I am terrible at guessing how many are actually there.
