Re: Coon sets for cold weather
cold water isn't going ot keep coon away from the water- I trap coon all of dec, jan into feb using nothing but water sets- either pockets or pipes.
they will limit movement in that first cold snap or two, but after thatr, in "warmups' they will move and work the water
the biggest change I make for cold weather, is to really pour on the lure, and forget about the baits/food lures instead going with curiosity type lures such as gland lures, coon call lures and very skunky lures.
but don't expect results like warmer weather- #1- you have a lot of coon gone by then from other trappers, hunters and #2- they semi hibernate and don't move consistently.
so set up your areas, and be patiant.
