*Efficiency is the key to trapping coons. One must make use of their time and resources.
*Hit the coons hard before the ice freezes. Coon trapping is 10 times harder once the water freezes.
*Get snare cable and the parts and make your own snares. You can make a plethora of snares for little cost.
Make sure to take advantage of the reusable snare parts.
*Feel free to be creative with your bait. We have caught coons with many different things: fish, mallows,
corn, hot diggity dogs, shiny pop cans, etc. Coons will be attracted to smelly and/or shiny baits.
*It is very possible to over-trap an area. We have done that on the Troublesome Creek. If you trap coons
hard on your stretch of a creek, it will take time for coons to inhabit the area again.
