they are readily available on ebay, but craigslist definately is the place to find good deals. how far are you from ontario? there is a guy there who sales traps at a pretty reasonable price. also if you have any fur buyers shops or trapping supplies stores around, ususally they are decently priced. rntpost.com is decent also

snare shop is where i get most of my stuff.
I have a new mink spot that I can't wait to trap.

besides two beavers, all I normally get are possums, skunks and coons. Still new to it all and don't set many traps, but it is still fun.

MTP is a great place.

Justin- When I first started trapping in NH there were no possums. I remember catching my first in the early 80's and wondering what it was. LOL

For trapping dry land, I have probably trapped 10 or so possums, 20 skunks, and a few coon.
I see TONS of dead possums on the road every year. I did read an article about them moving up north. I guess even just recently they have only been in the southern part of the state but now have moved farther up.

Ugly looking at first, but I don;t mind them now.

Holy-crap! I just looked at trap prices and my pile of old traps is worth enough to buy me a new shotgun. I can't believe how much they cost now. I paid top-dollar for my traps and got them over 20 years ago. I'm in sticker-shock from looking to see how much a 110 conibear costs new.

Now I gotta ask.. has fur-prices went up enough to justify the additional costs in fuel and traps etc.
How much is a muskrat going for?
Mink?

If you're going to trap muskrats you better be ready to catch some mink. You can't run a water-line for rats and NOT catch mink imo.
I always set my sets with two traps in case a mink tried to eat my catch. I started doing it that way the first time I found a muskrat that got ate. A mink will start at the "vent" and eat his way inside and all you got left is some fur and bones. Finding a rat that's ate and NOT catching the mink will make you angry.

trapper friend of mine averaged $7.10 for rats last year; majority were double XL though.
