A video I made a couple years ago.

I don't know if I have ever shown you guys this video I made. I was getting ready for trapping season and wanted to make some mink cubbies. Most of them are wood but I didn't want something that would edventually rot and get trashed.

I made these but never caught a mink. I did catch coon in them though.

Here is the link.

Nice vid Steve! I still need to get over there and check out that shop! Maybe this winter we can try to call some coyotes together and finish it off with a cold one in your shop or mine. Tim might come over just to help empty the fridge! lol

Steve, I've ran my share of mink boxes/cubbies and they work great for rabbits, coon, and possum. I've yet to connect on a mink in one though. It's been my experience that you are better off with blind & pocket sets for mink. It seem's to me that we have the same urge to tinker with stuff like this. I'm sure I'll be trying something similar in the future just to see "what if I do it this way"

By the way, I wonder if you ran the small rbg's inside the pvc, or a small snare instead? :smiley_chitchat:

What is rbg?

I supose if you used a snare you may only catch a mink that could crawl all the way into the tube.

I have a bunch of square tubing and springs to try to make my own dog proof coon traps. I think ACK posted some pictures on how to do it on another board.
