Varmits

Recommended Posts

Anybody ever had varmits coming up your ice hole while fishing? Or had a varmit make their nest while you were away from your permanent house? What a mess these little muskrats can make. This varmit has been terrorizing us for 2 years now!

Check the regs on the trapping season for Muskrat's, (as far as when you could legally do this) but I would suggest a body grip trap (such as conibear) right above the hole... That should stop em.

Yes I have had fox did under my house and get in and do his or her thing all over the floor in my house. You should smell that. It would also dump the bait and eat all of that.

We had an otter and young nesting under our cabin one spring. Got scared out when we slammed a door,watched her carry them 1 by 1 down to the lake.

I had a muskrat come up my hole one time and he was carrying a piece of root or whatever it is muskrats eat. He sat hunched over and was gnawing away until his eyes got adjusted to the darkness (It was just a little 4X4 house with plywood floor and thick canvas, and my windows were sealed up, so it was DARK). I could almost see the expression on it's little "face" change when he realized he wasn't where he thought he should be---and he wasn't alone. Then he panicked and hit the hole hard, splashed me in the face and was gone forever. I still have to chuckle when I think about it.

    • Wow, I didn't think single stage versus 2 stage snow throwers would become a Ford vs Chevy conversation.  My take is that for the average home owner with a flat, concrete/asphalt, standard three stall garage wide driveway, the single stage should suffice.  I will continue using my 2 stage at the cabin on the driveway and gravel parking/walkways.   Leech has me concerned on the Honda single stage, so now I just need to determine which to buy.
    • I wasn't planning on going due to the project list getting longer but I took my 7 year old out to sit last weekend. We got home and he was telling his mom all about it and how cool it was seeing deer walk by and how he wished there was more time in the season. That was when the wife asked why I wasn't going to go during muzzleloader and that I should go so I can take him out again. I felt like I had to be a good husband and just agree with her. Sometimes it's about compromising with your wife just to keep the peace in the house. 
    • I would bet that there will be people out on smaller lakes in the Detroit Lakes area this weekend. 
    • If time allows I will get out for a couple walks in the woods with the muzzy.  I didn't get anything with the gun and have yet to buy a bow license cuz time was spent chasing fall walleyes opposed to deer.  Good Luck to those that get out!!
    • Looks nice. You must have to be real careful with the saw to get clean even cuts and the bases.
    • Very cool, love the woodpeckers.  I save fat from my deer to feed them all winter. They seem to prefer that to the store bought suet cakes.
    • thanks guys, i've only owned 2 blowers. both 2 stage and the first one i think came over on the mayflower!!!!!!!!!!! guess i never paid much attention to other blowers!!!!!
    • Looks great! Big improvement in a small area
