I had a call this evening from a man who had caught 27 mink off some crawfish ponds, the question is what should be the ratio of males to females in an area like that? He caught 26 males and only 1 female. Any input will be appreciated.

Male mink like marten are the ones that travel great distance. Females tend to be more territorial. That is why his male ratio is high.

In my opinion hes a lucky guy to only have one to deal with :-D. But seriously sows dont have a large range. I would have expected 3-4 to 26 males but thats not real uncommon.

Thanks, I would like to catch ONE MINK regardless of what sex it was. But 26 to 1 seemed a little lopsided to me. That poor female wouldn't have time to eat! :shock: :roll:

Old age is setting in Swamp and you are forgetting. You set some mink boxes up here 2 years ago and caught your mink or was it an otter, not sure now :mrgreen:
