Clay, I may have to challenge you to the coon catching title. Night before last I had 5 raccoons on the back porch, stealing dog food and giving my black Lab the evil eye. They made me mad, so I went right then and baited the "Havahart" type trap. Next morning, I had not one but TWO coons trapped! Two down, 3 to go. :)

Hey Bob!
Nope, this is at our main home, but it is sorta in the country. It is a rural subdivision with 2 to 5 acre tracts outside of any city limits. We sometimes have deer cut through the yard and have had wild hogs run through at times, also. The inner city folks who move out here think it's country. :)

Actually, they were pretty little coons and the trap is a $70 size, but I don't know what the SIZE is. And for bait, I just use dry dog food in an old tuna fish can and set the trip on hair trigger with a trail of food on out the door. I place bricks around the sides of the trap so they think they are going into a tunnel. It helps disguise the trap.

As for the place in the country, we did go spend a week up there recently. Our son got the tractor running right off the bat, but the brush hog won't work. We found a guy down the road there who repairs tractors and he's got maybe 60 acres of tractors...I think you call it a bone yard. Told my husband I want a picture of his place next time we go. He said our son was drooling when they went there! :)

Good to talk to you again Maggie, Sounds like a nice place you are living at now. Good luck with the coons. Be looking for some hats for sale on here soon.
Later Bob

need 2 buy a pole stick for removing a coon from a trap

Oh, I won't try to trap two nights in a row. I will wait until they forget they lost part of the family here and come back getting cheeky and then I'll do it again. Same old spot. Works every time. I've lost count of how many I've caught this way in the same spot. Since I caught the two, the rest of the family seems to dining elsewhere. They tried to break them out of the trap...lots of digging around the outside of it.

"When we got coons on the porch mama shooed them off with the broom."

Maggie/TX    Posted 08-12-2003 at 22:24:05       [Reply]  [No Email]
Tried that. They come right back. I've also shooed them off with a machete, but they are too quick for me there. Would have used a gun, but the .22 was in the closet in the computer room and my daughter was sleeping on the air mattress that night in front of the closet door. :)
