    I have two and half acres all woods except my house!! My trash cans got raided and one of my chickens that was broady I had in a cage got pulled through and taken all there was a pile of feathers!! Looked around saw coon paw prints went and got two dog proof traps and set them with a month and a half I got 26 coons and have not caught another!!! My question how many coons can live on a small place??? I have all respect for you trappers people should let all of you trap there farms to keep all the predators in check instead off complaining about no turkeys or less deer and rabbits!!!!! If I had a bigger place and land I would let you all trap no problem wouldn’t ask for nothing except you catch as many as you can!!! Thanks for trapping keep at them!!!

    When the bandits find a food supply they will travel to get there I've trap them for deer hunters that would have trail camera pictures of coons eyes looked like Christmas lights all lit up ... You did good. And thank you for supporting trappers

    I may be dealing with some smart coons. Idk. Didn’t figure they were very smart. Lol. I’ve got 3 coons on trail cam I’m guessing the same 3 for the last month or so. I’ve tryed several diff baits. So this past weekend I used peanut butter dog food and vanilla flavoring. They are on my camera walking right by it all weekend. Didn’t catch nothing. Got a possum to. I’m not givin up though. Dang coons.

    Just a thought but if you've caught some in the exact same spot you may move traps a few feet away wrap aluminum foil around top of dog proofs it atracks them

    I’m sure one of them may not have a toe. Had a pullout and it left its toe behind. Had another pullout and just a hint of blood. So these may be the ones I’m dealing with. Idk
    Or something killed them and pulled them out. Didn’t have camera on it then.

    LoL that does make them remember if you can find the trail hang you a snare he'll be there next morning... If you just want to use dog proofs then pile grass leaves around it so it doesn't look like trap
