Re: When do you use fish oil for raccoon trapping??
My experience using fish oil for raccoons has been limited to the use of dirt hole sets made especially for that specie. One ounce of fish oil was poured directly into the hole, then a generous handful of grass taken from the surrounding area was was balled up and tossed in the hole atop the fish oil. If the set was made close or right on the coon's line of travel I generally caught the coon the first or second night. Most times coon travel in pairs so if you catch one, there's usually another around. Might as well leave the set in place and catch him too.
I trap mink because I don't know any better
