A few weeks ago we had a great weekend of 10 coons in our dog proof traps. The next weekend we had 2. Waited 2 weeks to give them a break and set them again and didn’t trap a thing. They have started dumping the trap out to get the food instead of sticking their arm in there. What do y’all suggest?

Wire it to the side of a tree or put a big marshmallow in there that wind fall out. You can also pour a little fish oil in there and they will think there is still something in the trap and may reach in.
If you have IG or FB go give me a follow at TexasKillingFields

what are you using for bait?

peanut butter comes to mind, should stick to the walls
