Not trapping any. Just caught a beaver this summer for my dad that’s all I’m fooling with for now. This winter I’m going to try and catch a mink and a weasel. That’s my only goals. Because Of some medical issues I don’t think I can really coyote trap much. Too much heavy work. Setting a few beaver traps like to have killed me
I’m already picking out where my sets are going
I may keep one set open right here at the house all season long so I can say I trapped them entire season
Sure do. I got a road kill one once in downtown Woodbury a few years ago. It was summertime though.
Saw one or two on 27 on both sides of flat shoals creek.
Nig Thompson trapped some chicken killers at his place a few years ago
My old work buddy that is also retired has seen multiple ones in the river below West Point dam while in a boat.
I have a road killed weasel in the freezer unless my wife threw it away. It was killed about a half mile from my house on my road a few years ago.
Mink range through the whole state of GA and the surrounding states. There are plenty of them here in western NC. They are pretty common in most places with suitable habitat, but you just don't see them often unless you trap for them or do a lot of trout fishing. I see them pretty regular along trout streams.
Caught mink and muskrat in N. Ga. in my high school and college years. I've see mink killed on the road in Tift and Calhoun counties but have never caught one down here. Never have set for one down here. I've only caught one weasel and that was in Worth County about 1981. He made it very clear if I would be so kind as to release both of his frontlegs and shoulders from that Victor 1 1/2 single longspring, he would gladly whip my backside and walk away. If I had been so foolish, I believe he would have succeeded.
I have mink that live in the creek at my home. I see them right at sunset or early morning. I've seen them run up my corrugated pipe chasing chipmunks and then seconds later I can hear it giving its death squeal. They also killed a muskrat family that I had. They're interesting but voracious killers
I’ve posted this before, but I’ll throw it out there again. Around 2002 or so I saw a funny looking critter bouncing down the edge of a green cotton field in Brooks county. It was on Dry Lake Rd. The field bordered a small swampy strand. Anyway, it was about house cat sized, certainly in the weasel family, reddish brown in color, but long legged/tall compared to an otter. I looked it up at the time and believe it was a Fisher. I realize this is not part of their accepted range. Thoughts?
