PVC sets are always HOTT !! and of course any set with a Coni.

A government that doesn't trust it's law abidding citizens to bear arms is unworthy of trust itself.

Try moving just to the top of the bank and use a little red fox gland lure this always works well for me in cold weather.

Re: Coon sets for cold weather

If you move to the top of the bank put another trap on hte "back side" of your set. The catch canines coing into the set........kill two birds with one stone

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.
