This was my first year trapping. I caught 27 muskrats, 2 mink, 1 coon, and 1 beaver in 2 weeks. Made alot of mistakes but learned alot along the way. I met some nice trappers on the line who gave me some tips. I will make sure I have more time off of work next year, so I can trap longer. It got cold here in Wisconsin for about a week, everything froze up. I pulled my traps and then it warmed up but it was time to deer hunt.

Thanks guys. I'm glad I found this site. I live in Milwaukee and there really isnt anyone to talk trapping with. I trapped for 2 weeks and its in my blood. I just received an oder for 5 dozen duke 1 1/2 coilsprings today. Those Mink around Ladysmith WI. Better be careful next year cause I'll be chasing them around Rusk and sawyer counties.
