This year I learned that trapping mink above water can be really tough but persistance payed off. Yanked this property today, I may be back but the snow conditions are iffy and it's a long walk back there.

Here's why I use a lot of 160s for mink, especially out of the water





one load headed to the truck

Thanks all. Have to give credit where it's due... thank you BigWhiskey! He saw the tracks and the hole, I just set the 160 and threw it on top. That's the second time he's pointed to a spot that produced for me. His rates are very reasonable and he lets you borrow videos too!

Here's a better pic

Wow! If it wasn't for the fuzzy tail and white chin patch I would have been looking for the otter tag! Nice mink!

A lot of ducks and muskrats are sending you their thanks!

Nice mink FP, the co-pilot looks like he is not going to be doing any running lol. He has that look on his face like " hurry up and shut the door, it's freezing out there". ;)

The copilot ran two rabbits there for about an hour but I don't shoot them there. We went hunting afterwards and I missed :sad: Still haven't shot one this year.
