Though weasels, also known as ermine when they turn white, adorned royal robes in Europe, its für doesn’t carry the same exclusivity today.
But weasels are still trapped. Most trappers use weasel boxes. Weasel boxes hold traps to capture weasels. The box protects the bait from the weather and larger animals that might steal it.
Different trappers use different hole sizes. Some like 2 inches in diameter others like 1.5. But does it make a difference in capture rates? How about non-target captures?
I’ll keep an eye out for any info. If you have some insights on weasel box holes do let us know.
