A friend that owns about a thousand acres asked me if I would help him with coons on the place. Bein' an old Virginia mountain hillbilly and long time coon hunter, I told him I'd be happy to help. I spent the morning going through his live traps, doin' a little maintenance and tuning them up. I set five traps before I left at noon.

His wife has been having problems with the coons attacking her chickens and eating the eggs. I told him I have a warrant for Rocky's arrest. Like Robocop said, "Dead or alive, you're coming with me."

This was a sow and a yearling. I had moved one of the traps to the edge of the shallow end of the bass pond. I drove the John Deere Gator to within 20 feet of the trap and they didn't move. I eased up to the trap with my rifle and discovered they were both sound asleep. The sow woke up in the promised land.

Good deal. I'm hoping for similar success this weekend. I have at least one tall enough that he's getting into my protein. Saw him on pics from the last trip. I have 4 Dukes around the pen and I just bought 4 more.

I assume you mean DPs? If so, try this; Work a little peanut butter into a cotton ball and push it into the bottom of the trap.

I would like to trap like that. I have 8 dz of mostly dukes. With a few z traps, grizz, and diablo dp traps. I have tried cat and dog food. Caught a few last winter
. I took salted cut bait [skip jack] and other fish stuff. I bought stuff to cure it right this yr. Take a golf ball or make a cover for your traps. Coons will fip them off. Saves your bait from mice. After a while coons get smart to them. If u can take take a plastic square bucket. Cut places where a set 160 body trap will side in. Drill holes in back of bucket. When u start to set it put a small rock inside bucket. Then put a limp or rock on top of bucket. Put trap in. U can use dry or wet or fish. U will hammer some coons. Plus u will pickup Bobcats in this set. The white bucket will attract coons by sight . They will check it out. I skin easily 50 to 60 coons a yr. I just do it part time. But this yr going to hit them harder. My gold is 10 dz dog proof traps to run. I ran closed to 2 dz last yr. Looking forward to get to run them all one day.

Two days in a row now, no coons. My friend thinks we might have wiped out that particular clan. If the traps are empty tomorrow, I'm gonna shut 'em down and put 'em away until evidence turns up of more dropping by for a visit.

I thought corn, slightly burnt, etc. was good coon bait. Is it okay to sell the meat if anyone wants it? I thought some folks would give you about $10 for the meat?

I'm not sure there's a bad bait to use but we've had great success with a mix of mini marshmallows and fruit loops (cheap walmart version in bulk bag). Drop a few to the bottom of the trap and a few outside...............done deal.
