A state of the art book by one of the best mink trappers in the business. Fast, effective methods of taking the most mink in the shortest period of time. This book not only shows you what to do, it tells you what not to do. It covers both blind and baited sets with extensive coverage of the pocket set, and explodes many of the myths of mink trapping. This book picks up where most of the others leave off. Written in clear, easy to understand language by an author who has thousands of mink to his credit, with over two thousand mink trapped within a five year period. If you think you should be catching more mink, you’re probably right and this book will show you how. Some of the information in this book goes directly against what you may have heard or read before. The author has the mink and the miles behind him to back up what he says. He lets the chips fall where they may as he explains what real world trapline experience has taught him about mink. The information contained in this book will help anyone interested in improving their mink trapping ability; whether being a novice, professional, or anything in between. Mega Mink Methods is a complete guide to effective mink trapping.

Smythe - Bottom Edge Mink Set - Book by Ken Smythe

by Ken Smythe as told to Bob Noonan.  (Includes George Wacha chapter) 

After Ken Smythe’s first book, Bottom Edge Mink Set, revolutionized mink trapping, Ken and other trappers tried the same basic set on otter and beaver, with immediate results. After 10 years of experimentation and refinement by a number of trappers, and thousands of beaver and otter caught, the bottom edge set for these furbearers has been perfected. With this book, Ken Smythe has made another valuable contribution to the trapping community. Although similar to the bottom edge mink set, the otter and beaver version differs in important ways. Bottom Edge Otter and Beaver explains these differences, and includes chapters on trap selection and positioning, general location, specific otter and beaver location, weather, and a chapter by well-known otter expert George Wacha. The 63-page book includes 15 clear line drawings by Bob Noonan, and 34 photos, most of locations.
