I had a mink that was able to take down a full grown male Muscovy duck. Not quite as big as a normal goose, but they are a stout bird. They can be fairly mean too, if you have more than one drake.

We he got into my 10 week old chickens, he killed 10 in one night, just ate the crop out of the neck.

We he got the Muscovy, he ate the neck but also most of the breast meat and some of the intestines. When I saw the tracks I couldnt believe it was a mink, didnt think they were that aggressive to go after a full size duck. But caught him on the trail cam and seen him live.

I have never had a problem yet with raccoon or 'possums. Just mink, owls and hawks.

I have seen one pine marten in all my years of hunting and it was north of Grayling. Not sure there are a lot of fisher around either. Probably no martens or fishers in the southern lower.

I used to have a lot of Muscovies here but the drakes were beating the k-rap out of everything on the place. Coons take the hens. Nothing yet has taken a drake off the place.

I agree with you. That"s why I got the Muscovies, supposed to be one tough duck. But the mink got two of them.

I always would take the meanest drake and put him in the smoker. Stuff the cavity with an orange and put raspberry jelly on the breasts. Came out pretty good for a big ole" bird. Dang, I am making myself hungry.
