Coon trapping question.

Once you have caught a coon, do you move your trap, or re-set, and try for another one?

Re: Coon trapping question.

In area's im trapping i dont feel there is any chance of trapping out all the coon i keep them set till i feel ive caught the majority of coons .....
Then i pull and move up or down the creek and keep setting ... Also i set on sign if no tracks no sets !!!

Re: Coon trapping question.

I don't always set on sign. I set on habitat also.

But I also keep them going til I have caught the majority of the coons too.

Re: Coon trapping question.

I have learned over the years to set where i see coon tracks , it cuts down on the guess qwork , and around here there are coon tracks just bout everywhere LOL !!

Re: Coon trapping question.

If I only set on coon tracks I wouldn't catch very many coon.....
