Through all 53 of their years together, the year has always begun and revolved around the trapping season for Karen and Gene Anderson of Litchfield. Karen has fashioned many of the furs they harvested into attractive coats, vests, hats and mittens. Tribune photo by Tom Cherveny

Jim Meder of New London removes a mink from a trap along Lake Monogalia north of New London on Wednesday while the temperature again headed toward the 60s. "This is great," he said. "Usually you've been busting thin ice for a week by now." He traps muskrat, raccoon and mink. He said the "rats" are the most lucrative pound-for-pound, since they skin quickly.
