Why I hate coons on a Canine Line!!!

Pulled up to my perfect coyote set this morning and found this. It not the first it's happened, I've caught a few nice late season coons on this farm. Just did not want to deal with them now. Heres before. Funny stuff!!

Why do you assume it was a coon? I have had red foxes do this numerous times.

When the trap is pulled out and not set off its almost always coon IMO. I had a blind trail set flipped up this year. Remade the set a little more solid had had big boar coon next day.

I had some coyotes last season that were doing that to me nightly. I have no coons up here.

The trap was picked up and placed to the side. No dirt thrown around like it was dug out.

Yep , surgically removed, coyotes drove me nuts last year, even doubled up traps and they would gingerly uncover and move the trap a side.

i'm with you brian . coons are most likely the culprit . never saw evidence of a yote in our area doing it .

Re: Why I hate coons on a Canine Line!!!

Just about everytime this happens I set a DP about 15' away and nab a coon in a night or two. I'd have done it today but I'm pulling everything tomorrow.
