Question for trappers... feral cats.

I just got a call from a raccoon trapper who told me this year he has caught more feral cats than he has coons. He's not trapping near barns or houses. He's focusing mainly on trails the coons use where they leave the woods and enter cornfields.

I was wondering what the experience of guys here has been with feral cats.

Re: Question for trappers... feral cats.

i catch quite a few when im trapping new areas. i always make sure with the landowner to see if they have any cats. but it doesnt matter where on the property i set i catch at least one.
