Anthill Dirt

I've never been able to find much good anthill dirt where I live. However, I was up north recently and found a great anthill, about three 5 gallon buckets full. Do you trappers who use it find it to be any better then any other pre-sifted woods dirt, other then the fact that it doesn't need sifting?

The ants wax it for you. Sheds water well.

I trap mink because I don't know any better

Re: Anthill Dirt

i like it also. i don't put much faith in the natural anit-freeze deal as in the winter they are frozen just as hard as everything else, but the fact that its pretty much pre-sifted and drys easy makes it worth while.

Now your diggin' where the 'tators are!
