428.....

Slow slow 2 nights for me. I hope that is a good sign that we are putting a dent in them finally. 2 coons with 2 nights of trapping w/9 traps. I was by myself and didnít want to waste too much of the cool morning driving around checking traps when I could be trimming brush around our feedpens. I did get my problem daytime coon that was running deer from my timed protein feeder. This might be my first confirmed daytime catch ....

ďHey hey what is this?Ē





Son of a...!!!....
ď


And got another one on my other Covert monitored feeder. Caught him at night though.

Just chain it to your feeder legs. I use T posts mostly. Seen a few people on here use cinder blocks also. Pretty much anything they can't run off with.

Tent stake are not enough. I added a foot of chain and EZ links to make it easy.

What Smart uses is the best.
I initially just used some extra fencing wire to tie them to the feeder legs.

I use an identical setup that Smart uses except I use cable. Just tie that chain or cable around the feeder leg and you are good to go.

Dukes dog proof is what most of us use. I think there's another called a z trap that has a push/pull trigger. They're hard to beat!

Took my 7 year old yesterday and put four traps out. 2 in my pasture 2 in swamprangers. Went 2 for 4, big male and a youngin. 7 year old was a little nervous dispatching them, especially the boar raising cain.

I’ve got 3 coons and 3 possums so far. 520 so far. I’ve ordered some Dukes traps and I have coons getting into my chicken yard tearing my netting up, should I put the traps inside of the pen or out? Combo?
