I was reading in the Sunday newpaper about this guy who is avid trapper.. I've seen a few guys doing the sport in Northern Wisconsin.. down the firelane by our cabin in the woods..
he sure goes through some rough & rugged roads to get to the river bottom ..
trapping for muskrats ..they sure are a ugly animal .. he's gotten a few mink caught in the traps..$$$$$

anyone out doing this sport .. or do we call it something else.. ???

I used to do some trapping. Trapped muskrat, mink, beaver, coyote and racoon. A few years back our state passed a statewide ban on leghold traps. The result of a ballotbox wildlife legislation inniative. The legislation is so vague that its possible to be prosecuted for using a mousetrap in your home. The region is now overrun with coyotes. The only legal trapping now is done by government trappers working for the state and federal wildlife agencies.
