Can't catch a coon

Anyone else not having luck. I set six DPs out and caught one on the second night now nothing for four days. I have three in a PRIME coon area with tons of sign. And haven't caught one. [censored] one is dead on the road about 50 yards from one of my sets. I am baiting with Minnesota trapline products predator bait with a little fish oil shot around the area. What's up?

Re: Can't catch a coon

I dont have much experience with trapping but if the baits you are using are not attracting coons, try different bait. Try marshmallows and sardines.

I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.

Re: Can't catch a coon

Pretty much what I was going to do. I am leaving everything to and switching bait up on Sunday. I can't trap my one area over the weekend as its on my way to work and I don't wanna make the drive on the weekends. Fish with marshmallow on Monday.

Re: Can't catch a coon

I've caught 4 in 5 days now. Today I had nothing though, but it was very cold here last night. Only 6 DPs out and baiting with marshmallow, chicken grease and trailed with fish oil. I reset one with wet cat food yesterday to see what happens. I will be putting out a bunch of fox sets today.

Re: Can't catch a coon

What is a "Dp"?

I'll sleep when I'm dead.
