Abstract. Data obtained from radio-tracking a juvenile female mink (Mustela vison) for 29 days indicate that 2-3 month-old juvenile mink are not restricted to certain dens for extended periods of their first summer. Similarities such as tunnel size and depth and X location of dens relative to a sedge mat were noted among 20 different den sites within a 77-acre area used by one family of mink.
