Re: using mink boxes
How about using a box like is used for weasels, but use a slightly bigger box with a slightly bigger hole and a #11 instead of a #1? I'd chain it well though, have chain run out the side or something, hooked solid to a tree or cement block in case you catch a coon that stuck it's paw in there. And how about encouraging mice into the box months before season opens? Nearly every fallen birdhouse we have seems to turn into a mouse nest after a while. My cattle dog finds them and goes nuts.
