mink question

Hey guys....
Trapping newbie here. Interested in any advice I can get on trapping mink. Trap size? Productive but easy-to-make sets? Thanks!

Re: mink question

Traps: size 1.5. Coils work best. Productive, easy to make sets: set where mink are forced into the water or around obstructions.

I trap mink because I don't know any better

Re: mink question

Look for the best habatit, if theres a hole around the creek bed a mink will most likey go into it. One of there favoirite foods is muskrat and I have often caught mink in old abandoned muskrat dens, and small muskrat runs. Mink dont often travel the same route everyday and usually it takes 5 to 7 days before the mink will come back to the same area. Hope this was a little help
