  1. ok my wife hits the oddest things in her can last year she hit a beaver....now last night she hit something that looked like a farret but a really dark brown like a beaver....it was longer then a farret i was gonna get a pic of it but when i started getting close it took off running....i was think maybe a mink but im not sure if they exsist in these parts
     
  2. I'd be willing to bet it was a mink. I've seen at least 2 dead mink in the last week (central OH). The must've come out of their dens during that last warm snap.

    I cast my vote with NET........sure sounds like "mink" to me .......I live on a creek and over the last 14+ years have had some set up residence right in my side yard............Age old saying......"just cause you dont see it dosen't mean it's not there"........they are a beautiful animal to see and behold in the wild........ since it ran off as you said, it just might survive.....lets hope so....

  7. Another vote for a mink; probably running the creek banks on the hunt.
     
  8. In these parts it would have been a Mink. I used to get a lot of them when I trapped the creek between Cambridge and Byesville. Must of missed one. LOL

    You don't mention the size for sure. It was probably a mink because they are actually fairly common. The only other thing I could think of fitting the general description would be a River Otter. A mink is around 2 feet long and an Otter would be 3 to 4 feet including the tail. The Otter is much less common anywhere in Ohio.

    Here's a pic.

    HaHAHa you guy"s are a blast, about the animal targets with "her" driving. Hope that will not effect the "deer herd numbers in your part of the state. Was mentioned, hitting some thing as big as a beaver.... not hard to believe ....when almost 30,000 deer get "wacked" on Ohio highways and thats only the reported ones.......Hope the deer dont start getting in her way.........I sure dont care to see anyone get hurt......Be the case, I'd rather see her.........hit the small stuff......if any thing at all.....................Best of Luck........
