Tim,....That's keeping with the lore and experiences I've had with weasels/ermine/mink.... Back a few years my buddy Chuck was in my utility room, which leads to the workshop....at that time I had paper faced fiberglas insulation on the ceiling...It had loosened along the edges in a few spots...I was working on a snowmobile and heard him call out, and went too see, He says "Joseph, there's something in your rafters"....(He refuses to get glasses, and was squinting up at the low ceiling) Suddenly a small white conical face pokes out!...omg, what the heck was THAT? he looked close again and it came back out!...Startled him so, he fell back over the gas heater, knocked over a bunch of stuff....We sat on the wooden floor, laughing like idiots.....Finally figured out it was a weasel...Did some reading, and each article mentioned they were elusive, yet curious. I remember one excerpt where one ran up onto a farmers boot in a granary and kept staring up at him....Funny and weird, but I also know weasels can be viscious. So,...food for thought.

We've been seeing minks for the last 5 years on the property.  This year after a BIG flood I went downstream looking for my picnic table and two benches - didn't find them but saw two minks at the mouth of our stream.  They were going  upstream and passed by me really close.


Steve,....LoL, Sounds like our property,...In years past I've had to go looking for such things....But here, back in what the tax maps refer to as the "Bayou" (which it is)...towards the back of our property a small creek with high banks passes through from a neigboring farm's spring.....Our issues aren't mink, but Beaver....Sometimes we have difficulty w/ rapidly built dams appearing overnight, etc....It's cool to see mink in the wild...Thanks for sharing..

My buddy has 2 deer so far and my freezer is full thanx to him.....Good Luck Wang.......

Hey Jim.Tell your buddy way to go for me.I love venison and all this summer I thought I was out of deer steak and found a few packages of sirloin under a box in the bottom of the freezer!

No offense to your not finishing my  name,but Id rather be called Wangan or W or most anything but late for supper."You can call me Ray,or you can call me Jay,but just dont call me Johnson."[:D]

Wangan (Won-gan) = your belongings
Sorry W, just saw this and laughed out loud, it won't happen again....[;)]
