    Trapping problem coons

    I am having some success, but am puzzled by untripped dp traps with no bait. Is this normal, or do i need to smooth triggers on traps.
    Thanks.
    I love all God's creations, some are just better with gravy. Yes, God is good all the time.

    Coons are very smart! Was very easy to shoot coons in trees at the dump on Island.

    I have never trapped or shot a coon but I have found out that a pick up delivers fast kills.

    Sardines. Twisty tie them to the trigger.

    Yes, they're good at not getting caught. They do it for a living.

    Excepting Sardines smell better than liberals and dregs. Taste better too!
