    I'll post one when I get to the house.
    My buddy at work called it a 'Stoat'?
    We got them here?

    Whats the major differences between a stoat and mink?

    Stoat is just another name for weasel or ermine.Yes we have weasels, but they are not as easy to catch nor as plentiful as one might think.Their tracks are very similar to mink but smaller and not as deep.They are much lighter in weight and often can step on a pan that would otherwise spring when a mink steps on it.

    Took one with my phone. Can't get it to upload... Sorry.

    It had no white. My Papaw identified it as a mink. I believe thats what it is considering the size and coloration.

    Thanks guys.
