been trying to trap my first mink for about 3 weeks now. I just found a very nice buck in the road yesterday that wasnt hurt any at all. Heck he was still warm when I skinned him out. Thets the first mink Ive ever laid my hands on. He was crossing at a 4 foot diameter culvert heading towards a double 10' x 4' culvert going under a big hwy. This things like 300-400 foot long. I decided to check out the culvert he was heading to and lots of sign in there. Many tracks, some mink skat and all. Being my first time in a gauranteed minky location how do I efficiently catch one? The waters as shallow as 1-2 " in locations. One of the culverts I have a foothold in less than an inch of water on both sides tight against the wall. The other side I have a 110 bmi on a conistabilizer attatched to a 1x6 on each wall. I have put lean sticks over the traps against the wall, is this overkill or is this necessary? Also what if I made a tunnel so to speak and stuck it in there too on dry part of the culvert? Thanks in advance
