Put out 6 mink sets today on a Buddy's Farm, where he supposed to have seen a mess of mink roaming around.
Skube from on here tug along with me and made a few of the sets...
He is getting back into trapping and wanted to just tag along with someone and see things again and see different sets...
I tried my best to explain what all I could explain to him....Think outside the box on lures, baits and places to sets meaning try something new that someone else is not using or has never used before, Practice K.I.S.S when setting, showed him a few trails to look for to set CRs, how to set 160 Conibers and explained Bucket sets to him and how to pick something up that is laying in the area to use as a bait holder and will catch a mink or coons eye and possiably work a set(Skube, Sorry Bud, I forgot to explain that little Candle holder I picked up off the Bank and Why I placed the bait in it after digging a hole and set it in the hole and bed the trap infront of it, it was to catch the eye of either a mink or Coon that is coming thru there and possiably make them interested in working a set, You can also use Bones or skulls from critters found in the woods to do the same thing) and other things I can not think of right now..we even talked of non-trapping things!
Skube is 1 of those guys that is pretty much an All around Guy and is a Fellow Purry Countain and WELCOME Anytime he wishs in the Future to tag along with me!
Hopefully tomorrow brings a few nice mink in the sets he made so I can take some pics and post on here for him to see he Done Good and if 1 of his sets does connect, I'll say it here, he can have it for what he would like to do with it!
