Comment On The District 11 Auction
I noticed at the recent District 11 auction only 427 muskrats were sold. Thirty years ago when I ran the auction we would have a half a dozen guys who caught that many or more alone. We usually sold 10,000 to 12,000 in that single day auction.
Another interesting note, several years running I had the only mink entered in the auction and that figure was 2 or 3. We just didn't have that many of those critters around.
The 'rats do make me sad though and I will no longer set a trap in this area that may lead to a 'rat capture. I do not want to be responsible for taking the last one.
I trap mink because I don't know any better
