I don't think you could ever catch them all

There's certainly been a bumper crop of them around here! I've taken out a bunch so far, and every time I set a trap, I catch another one or three! They're kinda like feral hogs: they breed faster than you can keep up with them!

The more I trap the more I catch it seems

They got into my corn and destroyed it, so I have am running on vengeance right now

I have passed the death penalty on all of them on my place

If you trap them hard you can thin them out enough that they will no longer be a problem. It will take several years of leaving traps set out year round. I would not stop with just the coons. Once you do start trapping all of the varmints hard, the small game will really start to bounce back. Too bad the fur is not worth anything, years ago when people used to trap, the animals were in balance. Now the people we pay to manage wildlife are managing people instead, brain washed by the tree huggers. I had a supervisor tell me the best method of control, is to stare down problem coyotes.

I cleared them out at the house with a trap and a Glock. I have no relocation service for varmints.

Too much in that your sick of dealing with them. When I start getting to lazy or busy to check the traps before it gets hot outside I stop. As much as I hate them I don't want them to suffer in the hot sun. I don't think you could trap em off in my area.

People used to eat them,I still do,if it's not so hot I can't smoke them,on the corn feed coons it best to parboil(helps to remove a lot of the fat)than BBQ them food
