Dark brown large Mink approximately 2-4 pounds. I was sitting next to a creek approximately 5 miles from the closest trailhead calling for elk and filling my water bladder when this curious mink appeared 3 feet away standing behind a dead log with its head poked over like it was curious on what i was doing. It watched me for approximately 2 minutes but took off when i attempted to get a picture of it. I attempted to locate the mink but it ducked into a burrow near the creek bank.
