Got my sweet corn setting on an gonna set 220 buckets and DP traps around the corn field. Usually, the coons will walk right past the sets baited with everythig from bacon grease, Bluegill meat, mackerel, peanut butter, etc...

Anyway, getting ready to fight them off!

Good luck to y'all.


BTW, Moon caught a young 'possum last night. After I went to bed, he said he heard a rustling sound in the kitchen, he checked it out.

So, this morning I find a possum under a bucket where I sit to check the weather on the 'puter.

He found the critter in a bag of dog food! in the living room!

LOL!

Hillbilly here is a trick I learned many years ago on trapping critters in a sweet corn field, figure out where they seem to enter and leave the field, take a hoe and whack you our a meandering trail through the field and place steel traps in this trail. I liked putting them between two stalks of corn that the trail went. Use a short chain to prevent more damage to the crop. I have had great success on coons, skunks and grey fox using this method. The baits never worked for me, seems they are there to eat corn and that is all they care about.
