Has anyone ever seen so much coon poop that it looked like Big Piles of Bear Poop??
My Buddy that has the farm keeps telling me that there are Muskrats in his Pond...I've trapped it for 4 years now and have had No Muskrats and found No Muskrat Holes...
Well yesturday he was at it again, there are muskrats in the pond, you need to set traps around it..and I told him like I been telling him, I can find No Rat Holes and No Rat Tracks and No Rat Poop anywhere around the Pond but had last year found Mink tracks in the snow going thru the cat tails...
So I went in Saturday afternoon and told Him I'd set traps all around the pond again...Walked around, found Mink tracks again in the mud....made a few sets on the 1 side of the pond for mink...got to the back side of the Pond and found HUGE Piles of Poop that had grape skins, berries, nut shells and all kinds of different stuff in it and it Looked to me exactly like all the Bear poop I have found...So I called another Buddy to come in, he looked at it, looks at me and says, that sure does look like Bear Poop but where are the Bear Tracks?
So we go to looking, We found Coon Tracks in the mud about 50 yards away and started looking close to the cat tails and found trails after trails after trails in the cat tails and all the weeds were matted down from the coons running thru there so much...
I put in many sets, used 160s, 1.5s and my dog proof traps....
Has anyone else seen coon poop so much in 1 area that it looked like a Bear had been there and took a "Nature Call"??
This is a First for me, I've only found places in all my years trapping where the coons went and it was just a small pile not Huge Piles like I found today!
There was about 5 different spots and each spot looked like they were using it when they had to go and had huge piles built up that it looked like Bear Poop!
