I caught a nice muskrat today my first ever with a variation of the float set i saw in Fur Fish Game which is in my opion the best out door magazine ever made, on the float i had 2 #1 traps one coil spring one under spring and for bait and lure i had a slice of apple(it ate it anyway) and pete rickards muskrat lure, it was caught in both traps. There is no spring rat season in wisconsin but just so you know my niegbors were having trouble with them borrowing under docks so im going to take care of it... hopefully

Trapping furbearers out of season is a vialoation of law. No distinction is made for helping a neighbor with a few "problem rats." This will only hurt all outdoors men and trappers, especially since you said others probally saw you. There are legal ways to go about this with nuisance permits that will allow for trapping if they are causing problems. Sometimes trying to be the hero your way isn't the best route to take. Be careful what you say and do.
