Caught this guy this morning.. See the muskrat leg in the pocket... I agree with matthewbow though. Muskrats are food for most animals...

It is time to manage avian predators!

X2 works better then lure. I use lure as an attractant. But I use it where the wind will disperse it. Muskrat seems to be on allot of menus.
