Default Yall thought yall had a Coon problem

Me and a couple guys (Antlers and Sleepy) got a good chuckle out of this last night... I think its safe to say this feeder is over run with coons. 12 gauge, pattern master, and #2s are on the deck for this evening.

Wow! You need to buy 6-8 dogproof Duke coon traps and let those suckers hunt for you overnight..


And don't forget to add any you kill to our coon carnage thread. End of the year is coming up and we need to make that number as high as possible...... plus save the turkey eggs this spring..

I put out 7 traps for 6 total nights last couple weeks & have caught 30.
The terrible, did I mention terrible drought I am in has brought all the coons to my place because of the water & food.

I have 5 but I think this control needs to be handled another way. Bum rush with head lamps and shotguns! And I'll add to it.

Wait how did you do this? Three strands low so they couldn't crawl through? That's a good idea!

Can you not shoot them from a bit of a distance with a pellet gun or some less intrusive to your stand setup? 22 shorts to the dome?

Too bad the fur industry isn’t like it was in the early 80s. I remember getting up to $25/hide for those suckers. Bobcats at times brought $150-$175/hide

Yes 3 strands low. If you have grass around the edges you have to kill it though or it will ground the whole system and it wont work. Ill post a pic from my Spartan.

Here is a pic from my game cam. The power is not in the pic but you can see the insulators on the T-post.

Could but that doesn't sound like near as much fun...there's a really less intrusive way thats better than those 22 shorts

An educated guess would be 10 or 12 tins of the blue soup would bring that herd back to manageable numbers.

I got a pic like that with 15 coons once. Started trapping with 12 dukes. 250 later they finally slowed down. That was 2 years ago. A few are just now migrating back in.

I think I had 13 in one pic earlier in the year, put 5 DPs out and thinned them down by 11 I think. New wave must have moved in so DPs are going back out this weekend before they get that bad again
