coon ????

never did any real coon sets got a couple questions for those coon guys and girls out there.
1st sent control need to worry about it y or n?

2nd multiple coon catches in the same trap or do u need clean traps?

3rd possums in ur dp traps will they still catch coon if reset?

i set out 6 dp traps for coon and got 1 coon and 6 possums.i plan on seting some 1.5 this weekend i was waiting till mink just in case i got one to work a set.just need to no if i need to clean those traps i made catches in or just re set them and i let my kids put the marshmello on the triggers they got tiny fingers to reach down in there better. im using cat food and eggs and cat food and penutbutter and cat food with grape jelly with fish oil for a trailing sent. i only use one bait at each set or dp with a marshmellow on the trigger of the dp traps. works great for possums. thanks for any help u can give.

Re: coon ????

no need for clean d/ps after any catch. I have caught many in the same trap same circle.

Re: coon ????

dont worry bout scent just reset the trap and rebait and your gold and i dont think a oppsum will effect the coons desire for the bait

From September to April my world revolves around hunting the rest is preseason.

Re: coon ????

I'm going to relocate my DPs hopefully today or tomorrow and try to get a few more before bear season starts Sat. I only have 6 out and have caught 5 coons in them. None of these were successful more than once which leads me to believe that they won't be.
I've been told on here that they will work more than once, but I'm not seeing it happening. It was hot the first week I set and haven't had anything, but an opposum since. Maybe I'm just not being patient enough or have cleaned up enough of the coon on the two properties I'm trapping. It's just like every other mystery in this game.

Re: coon ????

I have found that I set 3 d/ps per location, when a catch is made in one of those It is the best one of the three. meaning that if I catch another coon at that location it will almost always be in that trap. If I catch doubles or triples they will all produce better.
