Why no mink?I don't target fox or coyote because of the area of NH I live in (densely populated and roaming dogs) and the low catch rate. Checking empty traps gets old quick. With canine species larger home ranges than a beaver there is a number of empty trap nights before a hit.
I stick with water trapping and fisher. Beaver, Otter, and Muskrat are my targets in water as I've found plenty of areas I can avoid people and do my thing.
I set a beautiful channel this morning for otter. The body gripper pic was from the set. Had to make a temporary bush fix with twisted trap wire. Tomorrow I'll pack in two more 330s and double up on the run.
Sure is. And based on depth maps it's relatively flat bottomed with gradual depth changes. Few deep holes which probably make it better for summer fishing.
Looking into Manning Lake for a future trip. Or smack some lakers on Newfound.
Like anything you can eliminate a lot of dead space and fine tune their travel routes for set locations.There's one place I trap where I'll target mink but other than that they're not a species I put time on.
I'm so busy with the other species that I haven't fine tuned my mink abilities.
I had the 500 and my buddy the 380. Truth be told, the 380 ran circles around it in deep snow.Thanks. I bought that two years ago. Needed carb work and nothing else. Runs awesome and I like that it is fan cooled. It's a 380, would have liked a 500 for the ability of putting a larger paddled track. Beggars can't be choosy and the 380 does get the job done. Hopefully we get more snow down here so I can fully put it to work.
