    What do you guys do to keep mice out of your boat during winter storage? I heard mothballs is one alternative but never tried it.

    Put some rat poison on the floor and moth balls. I never had to do it. They never bothered any of my boats. I did have some cat have a litter in one. I was shocked on that trip when I opened the hatch.

    Never had mice, but raccoons. Let them stay the winter. But we never used the boat again.
    It isn't the catch or the kill that makes for a great outdoor experience but enjoying all that God has created for us.

    moth balls work for moths!! if mice want to make a home in your boat the only way to keep them out is to set mouse traps

    If I could change one thing about hunting it would be to go back in time before baiting and crossbows!
