Well, I watched about $40.00 dissappear from in front of my eyes today. Had set up a couple great mink locations Sunday with some old #1 L.S. Today I pulled up, looked down into the creek and saw a mink in the first set. Got out, put my waders on (2" of water only), grabbed my digging tool and proceeded down the bank. In the back of my mind, the voice of wisdom was screaming "when you get down there to that mink, pin it down so it can't squirt out of that trap", but I wasn't listening to me, no sir, I got to it, smiled, raised the digging tool to smack it and "SQUIRT!!!", it popped out of the trap and into one of the old rat holes. So, good naturedly, I reamed myself a new anus and heard a mink scream about 10 feet away. RedemtionI says to myself and proceeded to the next set, the whole while telling myself, "PIN IT DOWN" Yeah right!! Lost the second mink in the same fashion as the first!!!
Lesson learned= Don't use traps that ain't in perfect form and if you do, be prepared to watch $ dissappear just like an Ex-wife or Uncle Sam was standing there with their hands in your wallet.

I DID PUT IN NEW 1 1/2 coils and threw in 4 110's in front of eaxch hole. Now I'm praying and still kicking myself. :cry:

"HO" wasn't even close to the words I used. :(

That's a bummer. You'll get 'em sooner or later though. You know where they are.
