Hunting, shooting, fishing for Weasels

Trapping, Highseat, Stalking

The weasel family, consisting of a variety of species including badger, mink, stoat, ferrets, weasel, polecat, otter and wolverine is not to be confused with the common least weasel.

They all are “ground” animals, hugging the ground with their short legs, long bodies and sharp claws.

A ferocious hunter themselves, species in the weasel family, especially the larger game, should be approached with caution in the wild.

Weasels prey on small animals, sometimes bigger in size than they are, and are in and out of the ground, burrowing through their tunnels and the tunnels of their prey as they attack. This makes them difficult to locate sometimes when you don't know where to begin.

Because many species are nocturnal, the best is to hunt early evening, locating their holes and waiting for them to come out and hunt, or to sun themselves. Furs from weasel in the winter produce a wonderful, radiant hide with thick and luscious hair, making winter the ideal time for a weasel hunt.
