Re: muskrat hut in town
Had a local PA guy by here today picking up holster/mag pouch plus we did some target shooting. Before he left I told him about this hut and exactly where it is, but only after he noticed some of my traps laying around. He mentioned all the muskrats he used to trap every year( 300 or so) and how mink were once worth $80+, but you could hardly find many mink back then. I told him that to see this hut, esp where it is, should bring back memories for him, and he agreed. So I'm guessing there used to be rat huts all over the area at one time, probably every pond with a shallow area and cattails.
