This photo sort of confirms an idea I had. I place corn out after season to make it easier to find sheds in the spring. When checking the corn in the snow I couldn't help but notice all the birds in the area. Don't you think that this would be a great visual attractor for bringing cats to the trap?

Just an idea!

Do you mean the visual being the birds at the corn? Probably not so much a visual if the cats move in the night but I am sure that the corn laying there looks different and they might check it out. They may smell alot of birds???

I put corn out here in Ill. late after season go's out for the coon's .They are pregnant then and need a extra boost for healthier litter's .I have put wormer in my corn and worm them at the same time.But all that is a different story .My point was. I have found if I sour the corn I lose a lot less to the bird's and deer.I put my corn in 5gal. bucket's cover with water and soak for a couple of week's. That smell will travel a long way and pull in lot's of game.When I'am, training a young coonhound I can go back to my feeder's and always get struck on a coontrack pretty quick. My neighbor ask me one day if I was making whiskey he could smell it .he lives almost a half a mile away.

I notice a over all healthier coon in the one's that are wormed I would Imagine a healthier coon has better litter's and better fur.I use safe guard wormer you can get at any farm supply store. I dont worm while they are pregnant.I do it in the early summer.After the kitten coon's are weaned.When I want to get serious on a not so healthy release coon [I do some A.D.C. trapping in the summer ]I will give him a dose of Ive Mectain This allmost always cure's about anything they have got.
