Mink Box

Here's a picture of a Mink Box used in Norway.
Looks like a great idea where Mink has option to travel through tunnel.

As wide inside to accommodate the trap. Length as long as a mink at both ends.

I never had any luck with mink boxes. I never tried one that they could walk through. If I ever try them again, Iíll build a pass through box, and set it out early an try pre baiting it. I get 2-3 every year, but Iím not a very good mink trapper. Mink guys are like musky fishermen...not many of them and theyíre dedicated even if you canít rack up big numbers.

Mink box & tunnels are place in the right spot. Experience & knowledge of Mink will determine placement. I don't think a Mink will be pulled off his travel route with a misplaced, baited box.
A Mink box is another tool to use for the right situation.
I know some Pa. guys that catch 50-80+ each season. I know two guys that stop at 30-40, because that's their goal each season. I think they are impressive numbers in our state.
Dedicated, hard working, long miles day after day.
These guys have their standard sets, but rely on a variety of sets, including tunnels & boxes to cover three levels of Mink travel, i.e. waterline, bank & top of bank.
I've run long Mink lines in the pass plus rode with two top notch Pa. Mink trappers. When the situation happens, a Mink trapper covers all three levels with lots of traps and a variety of sets.
Just saying, There are folks still dedicated to Mink each season.
