I've caught two in the last two years, but I'm not hitting them hard I only have two Weasel boxes out. I put my boxes right on the edge of thick stuff downfalls briars anything that would hold a rabbit or some mice.I bait with chicken liver and lenons weasel call lure. There are a million different box designs a quick youtube search will give you a vid or two on making them.I use #0 longsprings because I'm not sure rat traps are legal outside a watercourse. I would use a rat trap if I knew they were legal.This is a good site http://www.trapperman.com/forum/ubbt.../Number/443270
i maid box 5x5x12deep with a door at the front cut a slit down the side of the box to put a 110 in it then close door i cut a 1.5 in hole in the door. i to set my near brushy areas and log piles along streams. fresh bait is a must they wont eat tainted meat. and a trip wire would b best missed 3 this season there just so small they fired the conni and got away all i got was some tracks in the mud. had them walk over 1.5 db jaw duke traps and didnt fire them off.good luck hope u get some
look in these kind of areas when you get some snow and look for tracks
I always feel like I'm chasing red squirrels when I'm tracking a "weasel".. I've got the habitat described, including old barn foundations by creeks in the thick brush.. Got some old #1 jumps and longsprings.. Maybe I oughta try them instead of 1.5's.. My 1.5's are on a hair trigger though, find it hard to believe they wouldn't fire... Made "boxes" out of stones and had my bait stolen many times, always chalked it up to mice.. tryed everything from chunks of meat to shrimp leftover from new years.. Most of its been stolen and the tracks look chipmunk size to me... I still think red squirrels. do you catch them much when going after weasel?
reds my uncle gets a few red squirrels
I dont know what weasel tracks look like but
I'll give him a call tmrw and ask him to bring a camera along and take some pic of weasel tracks.When we get some snow
