Vet trapper's thoughts on the legality of Coon pre

As the subject states, in PA is pre-season raccoon baiting legal? If not, what regs support your thought. If so, please elaborate why you believe it is so.

Yes. It works well.

Absolutely, as long as it is for trapping and not hunting.

This is from a few years past.
I like to do some pre season baiting with a trail camera. This grey fox was caught with the trail camera in October and later caught in November. I actually caught 2 grey fox in this location that season.

The horizon is your starting point.

Pulled my card from my camera at my feeder yesterday. Before pulling it, my viewer showed 33 photos, quickly flipping through them, I saw two big coon. After pulling the card, I placed it in my pocket, and on the way to the truck I somehow lost the card. Need to go back with my daughter's metal detector and see if air can find it.

Looks like your all set. Can you do this for Bobcat? Don't mean to hijack your thread.

If you can teach em to eat smoke flavored cat food, I suppose you could. But I really think they are protein eaters and the legality of placing road kill or a dead livestock is beyond my scope of the law.

Re: Vet trapper's thoughts on the legality of Coon pre

You can bait for any furbearer, as long as you aren't hunting over it for them(except for coyotes).

Roadkill deer: negative on legality

Dead cattle: absolutely legal, so long as you have permission from the landowner to put it there, and it isn't on SGL's.

Keep in mind that you can't trap on bait visible from the air, but you can cable around it during CR season.
