Happy New Year!

Aight folks 2017 was a success with 1781 coons paying their food bill so lets see if we can surpass that number in 2018! ....Again we want this to serve as some motivation for helping saving those turkey and quail eggs as well as those feeder timers and solar panels..

Most of us already have our traps but in case some folks don't, I'm going to repost the pics I did last year in case somebody wants to jump into the fun. If you don't have any coon cuffs/dogproof traps, here is your motivation to go get a set or two or 10... Gun kills qualify too. Hell let's add TBHer vehicle kills as well because a dead coon is a dead coon....but don't do anything stupid trying to get one with your BF Goodrich.

When you get one or some, post your number and add it to the current running total.

Also if you don't mind, list how you got them... ie, trap type, bait used, or weapon if hunting them ....or of course vehicle kill. Listing will hopefully help some folks get and idea if they are new to it and want to start up.

We'll get after them hot and heavy this March and April and on any of our trips out west on lease work trips this summer but I'm gonna try to take advantage of the low food supplies this final weekend of season and trap a couple using Duke dogproofs corn and/or marshmallows. I have two separate females with 4 kits a piece on camera so they are trying to rebuild their numbers. 8 nights of trapping reversed already...


Good luck!

Shot one with the bow Sunday night. Good blood on the arrow, but I didn't look for him for 3 days. Didn't find it. Up to Smart if he wants to count it. Had four coming regular until we set the Duke's. Haven't caught any, or seen any on camera since.

Had the traps out with marshmallows for about a week and they've been on camera walking all around em. Put some corn in one day before yesterday that got turned over and marshmallow emptied. Had one last night, but only had a foot when I checked the traps today. This is the first time I've had that happen. Guess I'm gonna have to take em one piece at a time.
