First Muskrat
« on: December 11, 2020, 01:01:52 PM »
I took the trapper course in 2009 but this is the first year I decided to actually start trapping.  Put out a cage trap for nutria and a colony trap for muskrats.  Checked the traps this morning and caught this little beastie.  Short youtube video in comments below.

Nice job, Naithan. Did you ever go back and get that Bob you saw during bear season?

No.  They closed a big chunk of that area due to a fire and I never went back after it opened up.  Might be under snow by now.  I am thinking about calling for cats and dogs tomorrow or Sunday in a different area.
