Solid as a rock. I didnít see any visible damage to the trap. He beat himself up pretty bad trying to get out though.

Awesome! I had one broken and one straightened door hanger and the coni triggers twisted together like a bread tie along with some bent cage wires!

What'd I tell you about those Vandervort swim through traps? They are built tough. :tup:

Well, got my first rat today. Set up in a little creek. Thatís 4/4 on checks so far. Still have a lot to learn but at least Iím finding some success. Now I have some mink bait too!! Iíve got a few places I have seen them so now I can get on it! That being said, how feasible is it to use colony traps on mink? I donít have a single door mink traps atm. If itís worth while to use colonyís, whatís the best way to bait them? Tie the bait with tie wire and force the mink to get in to pull it out?

A friend of mine has a felony in the state of New Mexico, is it possible for him to obtain a trapping certificate in the state of Washington?

I would think he could get his trapping license, just can't use a firearm for dispatching animals.

Thanks. Was a great day. And to your earlier question, your friend should be fine to trap as long as he doesnít have a firearm on him
