Coon Cuff Confusion

My brother and I have been trapping for about two months and been doing pretty good with coon cuffs. We got stakers that are hammered into the ground with about a 12 in cable on it. Yesterday, my brother checked the coon cuff in the swamp where we trap and it was gone. Anyone ever have this happen to them (we know nobody took it cause were the only one who has permission to hunt/trap) Is it even possible a raccoon could pull the staker out of the ground?

Re: Coon Cuff Confusion

I would never stake anything in swampy or soft ground, cable or tie them to a tree or you will loose every trap you have. And don't stake for coon where they can reach anything to climb, they will take it all right up a tree.
