i am wondering when is a a good time to use fish oil for raccoon trapping? i hear people talking about using fish oil all the time but i don't know if it is really effective. if someone could let me know it would be greatly appreciated.
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.
