Old Timer Alert
I, myself, never tried this, but I did see a few instances where this little trick worked. I'm sure Datkins saw this one too.
Some old timers, when confronted by a digger fox, used to replace the trap at the bait hole with an old rusty horse shoe. Then a foot or so away conceal a clean trap well bedded in the manner of a blind set. The theory being was the fox would get caught while investigating the rusty iron smell.

I trap mink because I don't know any better
