Mink and muskrat trapping on small rivers and creek. Body grip traps, mink boxes and footholds trapping video.
Mink prices are getting higher every year it seems. So if you out raccoon, otter or beaver trapping, take the time to set a few mink traps on good-looking creeks and rivers. You are there already, the mink will be there if you give them time. It would be a shame to walk by or drive by mink money as you are already in the woods and on the creeks already.
Mink boxes are a fast way to set up low bank locations. You can use a body grip like in the video, but I would recommend using a foothold. Some mink will not go through the body grip trap in the opening of the box. Most mink will look into the box. So if not all mink will not go into the box, but most will step up to the opening of the box, then blind set a foot hold trap in front of the box. I would take the time to look over the area and guess which way the mink will approach the box. Sometimes the trap will be on the left or right side of the mink box. You can even block down the mink to make sure he goes where you want him to go. Mink boxes are a neat way to set up a low bank and not waste time trying to force in a pocket set.
