    Those pictures are hilarious, especially since they are holding them like they are still alive......nice work....and cool to see kids that aren't scared of critters! Looks like you'll have a couple gear haulers in a few years!:D

    Very cool. How'd they like watching you skin them? My kids loved it.

    the mink was in a #110 set for muskrats!! then I had a mink chew up a muskrat yesterday, so I set a 1.5 cs and tied down the dead muskrat, haven't checked it yet, hopefully he came back to eat some more.

    well I missed the mink, the trap was set off, but no mink, but he was back and now the muskrat is almost all gone...I will get that bugger yet.
