Greetings! This is my first year trapping, and things haven't been going my way. I have been setting DPs and have only got 1 coon locally (3 total).
I haven't seen much sign, but did see quite a few on my cameras. I am trapping on 6 wooded acres with an intermittent stream. I have set mostly along the creek. My neighbor has an outside cat that I want to avoid. So, I have been using fruit loops with marshmellows aa bait.
I have used coon crack and blue mtn lures. I also put some coon gland lure about 2 to 3 foot off the ground and squirting fish oil around.
Have the coons just moved off, or is bait/lure selection suboptimal?
