    My place is over run with coons getting 10-15 at a time at multiple corn piles everynight all night. Talked to several people that wanted to take care of them, then they all say the same thing. Not running my dogs of your property. West border of property is the Parkway. I understand why they all say they arent risking their dogs. What's next option ? Have someone trap them?? Looking for ideas..thanks!

    Trapping. Idk bout the legality of shooting them off a corn pile at night...but not sure what the difference in that and shooting them out of a tree would be.

    Get ya about a dozen DP's and set them around your corn piles. Should wipe them out pretty quickly.

    What luvtohunt said, this will work the best. Hunting is no where near as efficient as traping and if you have turkeys roosting near where the coon problem is you dont have to worry about the dogs scaring them off.

    I use dp’s to get them thinned out. Best bait I have found is small marshmallows or large. Avoid scrap food as you’ll catch possums and skunks.

    +1 on the marshmallows. The little bastids love 'em.
