Trap question for the experts

The farmer up the road recently gave me 60 traps that he hasnt used in 40 years, They are mostly victor longsprings size 0 and 1, also got a bunch of victor undersprings size 1, can I use these for muskrats and mink??

2014 - 2015 trapping season
Mink- 18
Muskrats- 30
Red fox- 63
My son & I both got bobcats. 15# & 37#

Re: Trap question for the experts

no expert here, just been a trapper for 30 plus years. i would use those traps as they are . rats and mink don't need much water to drown, so even a weak trap will hold them good enough
