Well, I managed to slid out onto the little tiny bit of ice we have. Don't worry, when I break through I only sink into muck up to my knees. Not many huts around, most are bank rats. I set some colony traps and 110's with a very few hut sets. I did pick up a few rats and really got the taste for ice trapping again. When the ice thickens later in winter, it will be all in.
