Nice! Is it freeze dried with the real teeth/skull in there?
No, but the teeth were cast from a reusable mold made from our mink's teeth/jaws.

Yep, last day of the season last year. Here's some pics from the morning we caught it:

My daughter (Trapper Jane) was awarded a permit last year on her fifth try but we never made it up to camp because of the horrible icing conditions that persisted through most of the late winter up there. She was pretty mad about it.

I was one of the guaranteed winners this year with six preference points. Trapper Jane is still a little ticked but she understands that it is a team effort and any cat we catch will be ours and not mine or hers.

I pretty pleased with the way the mink turned out so I'll probably use the same taxi if we catch a bobcat.

Boy does that bring back the good ole days of My Crawford County trapline along Watson Run and Geneva Swamp. Nothing like pulling a mink from under the water.
