I recently moved to potter county from dauphin county, and at home with about 20 coon traps out with the same bait as i'm using now I would be in the teens at least for coon. My traps here in potter have been set for 3 weeks, 5 dps set on edge of uncut corn, on trails from creek, cinderblock sets on bridge walls, and pvc sets all with 1.5's...I have yet to catch a coon. Each set has either trout, carp fillets, or premaid coon bait, a stick dipped in a good coon lure, and then laid down fish oil for trailing scent. What am I doing wrong? Could there be just not enough coon? Most places i do have sign, and had a few checks where coon had come under a bridge, fooled around on the sand bar, and never even came close to my sets to investigate a smell! I'm in the oswayo creek area, and heard from a co worker that his friend is already in the 30's with coon about 9 miles up stream from me. Anything you guys can think of?
