I put a weasel box out on Monday afternoon up the hill behind the house about 400 meters near a rock pile where I've seen tracks in seasons past. When I've done my few weasel boxes before, I've used legholds but this time I went with some rat traps that I had laying around. Its been a while since I've gotten myself with any trap but one of those d*** rat traps got me twice setting it. The first time squarely across both the index finger and thumb. Sort of wakes a guy up!!! Hopefully, it might be worth the pain over the next couple of weeks. Good luck on yours! :)

I have issues with moles snapping my weasle traps. They are dead and froze when I check the box then I just throw it in the back of the box for bait but just keep trapping more moles :x . Maybe I should post pics of them, after all, I am actually catching something. :wink:
