This week on Trapping Across America we are looking at how to trap mink with a pocket set. Some lessons I learned from Red O’ Hearn, Gerald Schmitt, Matt Jones and Johnny Thorpe. I am not a big mink trapper, let me clear the air with that. I catch mink when I want to, but I have never concentrated on them in a big way. I am more of the blind set guy myself, Matt Jones and Johnny Thorpe showed me a simple and fast way to trap and catch mink, the mostly over looked blind set.

I also go into a trapping question about my drag and trap set up for bobcats. This question has come up a lot from my Cat Collector DVD. Then we spend a few moments talking about changing the mind of a radical anti-trapper or a radical extremist that thinks animals should be totally left alone and in the wild.
