    I'm new to trapping just wondering what you would use to catch a coon in a box trap

    almost anything, i have used marshmellows, honey, tuna, salmons, canned oysters (the best.) sweet baits = less possums and skunks.

    Marshmallows topped with strawberry jelly or maple syrup....... canned cat food will work too but you will catch grinners as well...

    sounds like you need to find a good den area or even a culvert crossing under a highway.... city coons are pretty easy to catch too.... local mills \ hog farms \ dairy farms

    I put sardeans in mine, sit it out one evening, went back the next day, and had about a 17 lb bore coon in it.

    Honey bun works every time. If no luck, use a piece of loaf bread with peanut butter on it & sprinkle c'mere deer on it.
