Default RE: muskrat in live trap?

Live traping is not the best way to get a animal for taxidermy!

When you catch them they will chew on the cage. They will allso run around in the trap and scare there hides up. The live rats will allso draw perditers they will normaly try to kill the rat this to will give you pelt damage.

The best way to get a rat for the tax man in use a 110 conbear.Hole set the rat under watter.Out of sight and you will have no pelt damage.
