    Sounds like all this corn feeding has really got the coon # up and healthy.

    Live Traps with Cat Food gets Coons year round.
    They're rough on traps, I have 2 that have been rebuilt several times.
    Possums just eat the bait and sit and wait. Some Coons get really agressive.

    Or, Crows, dogs, cats, skunks, possum, black snakes, rat, bear yote, bobcat, Coon lives matter too.

    Now is the time of year to make the biggest difference. Have gotten a little over 20 so far with the dog proofs.
