most of where I trap is mountain streams .The set where I caught 5 is a 200 year old arch bridge spanning about 70 feet Length one side is wooded swamp and the other side is hardwoods. But the real draw is in the middle of the span 3 warm water springs enter. and not known to any one who doesn't enter and crawl around with a flashlight. In the coldest 0 degrees weather I can enter go in maybe 25 feet and be comfortable in shortsleve shirt Caryfish and frogs galore.
Also I leave these sets in from start to finish of season. Nov. 28--Jan--10 we can't trap the Mink rut here in Pa.I don't think our game commission knows what the Mink rut is . I was checked by one Deputy who didn't even know we had Mink. If it don't have anything to do with Deer and Turkeys our WCO's are Lost in Space.
