Coon like that lure just fine. Most any fox lure will attract coon. About the only way to avoid them somewhat is to set where there aren't many.

Re: Fox and yotes

From my experiance if you want to catch greys you must 1st be willing to catch all the trash 1st. Most all my greys are caught in brushy areas and along fence lines and thats where all the trash is also such as your skunks and grinners. Good luck

Re: Fox and yotes

I catch many coon in my canine traps.
I consider it a bonus.
I got better prices for coon last year than I did canines anyway. lol

I use the coons I catch in my fox sets to determine when to start setting for coons. Just don't go by the boars, if you catch prime females and young ones its time.

Re: Fox and yotes

A coon is better than a empty trap..If you want greys use castor based lures...Back breaker is a grey getter....Location is key for greys.Trappers try to trap them like reds and they are more cat like.Close cover,power line,woods roads is best for greys.........

Re: Fox and yotes

Tough to keep the coons out. Set out in the fields more to stay away from coons and trash. If you catch a coon in a field, it will probably be a tanker and a bonus. They love glands, urines and about anything canines like, so it'll be hard to avoid them with scents.
For greys, sweet little Leggett stepdown dirt holes with a urine mix, Hawbakers 800 or my SEC. Sweet smells and fish are great for greys, too. They love to hop on high spots like ant hills or dirt mounds next to sets. Great place for as trap. Good luck! Animal
