MUSKRAT TRAPPING—Will someone tell me how to set for muskrats where there are no houses, also what size of trap to use?
Go along the river, creek or marsh, whatever it may be, find where they have their feeding place (any trapper ought to know what a feeding place boas like), set trap in the feeding place near the edge so they will get their feet in it and not their nose. Press gently so it is just under the water. If in creek or river, stake chain out as far as it will reach in the water so the rat will drown. I find No. 1 traps the best. No. 1 ˝ is too large and breaks the bone too often.
