Re: Decenting for coon
i bought six new dp coon daggers this year an didnt boil them an didnt dye them an i have cuaght my biggest coon to date a week ago, and lost one. by lost i mean it almost broke my 3/32 aircraft cable i used to attach it to a tree an it some how got the clip unscrewed and took the trap. i was not happy to say the least the traps were like 13 bucks a piece but i was more angry about losing the coon i such for a couple hundred yard hoping it got tangled up somewhere nothing. i tightened all the clips on my other traps for extra measure this one must of just been lose. i just put a dry cat food in my dps just enough to come to the trigger no sense in filling it up and feeding the coon then i misted the trap with fish oil and sprayed the area around down with some more fish oil, when rain is comin i put cheap coffee cups i got from the office over them to keep the food from gettin soaked. that is when i got my 3 coons in one day i guess its a really good visual attractant. just leave them out only one of my sets was on signs and that was the smallest i cuaght i placed them where i know coon move through often even without sign. mine were out for about 3 days before i got three in one night and havent had any in them snice im waiting until saturday to move them and reset when i start for rat. good luck
