If someone could, I would like some one to take some pictures of actual animal droppings in the wild, Some animals like mink and muskrat, and I guess all over the other animals that we trap too if you have them, But I have a hard time ever finding mink and or muskrat droppings. I also have a hard time telling the difference between grey and red fox droppings. Thanks

When I was 12 years old in 1954, I had the good fortune of having a professional predator trapper as a mentor for fox trapping. Mark was almost 60 at that time and trapped professionally his entire adult life. I asked him, "How can you tell the difference between a red fox and gray fox dropping?" His reply: " The only way that I know of is to taste it."

A toilet is used repeatedly so yes there will be an abundance of scat.

So is a toilet area a good place to set a trap?

If so I found a toilet area for a Coyote.
