Kania 2500 - Mink Trapping

By using the following tips, you can ensure satisfactory results in Creek or Pond trapping of mink.

Wild duck or grouse is a good mink bait. So is fish. Set trap on ground near water. Place a handful of sand on the floor of the trap. Place bait from trigger side so that screen is not in front of bait. Pluck some feathers and scatter inside of trap as well as outside in front of trap. If feathers are not available, then fish of any sort is excellent.

The entire trap should be covered including entrance hole with grass, bracken, leaves, branches or whatever is near by. The mink will find it’s way into the trap through the debris. A stick dipped in mink essence and placed inside of bait compartment is advisable. Bait for mink should always be fresh.
