Ummmm there are 28 pages here and on nearly every one there is some reference to bait. Not all mind you, but perhaps read the other pages. smile

There's 28 pages of information and pictures right here in this thread. Better than any how-to book.

Thanks for the huge wealth of wisdom on this thread to get me snagged on weasel trappin'!!!
Beaver meat,Asa's Weasel lure and a couple drops of anise.I did get one mouse and one snapped trap,but the hardware cloth wall kept the little bait stealers out.The wall also makes it easier on trap checks.I do not need to carry bait,just a few traps when the weather is real cold.The mouse got put to good use by being used as bait.

Hey, I was wondering does the pine wood for your boxes help with the trapping at all? I mean does the scent of it entice the ermine to enter or is it nothing to them?

Has anyone experimented with the tension on the rat traps and been able to adjust it so you don't catch mice and shrews?

3/8" of poly fill 1"x1" under pan helps some but will still be set off by shorttailed shrews. 1/2" is better but may possibly not be tripped by smaller ermine(which might be OK). The professional M320 Victor traps have a heavier pan than any other I have found and are resistant to pygmy shrews. Am experimenting with higher holes and anti-climb material on front with good results before I ended season. Not enough time out to judge how it affected ermine refusal yet.
