The farm I hunt and trap has some coons in the barn. I have been asked to get them out, but there are pets running around. Anyone have an opinion on the little griz, coon cuff or egg trap type of traps? How do you set them?

I suggest the lil griz, it is the easiest to set (no tools involved) and you just pull the trigger wire towards you and set the dog. I use sardines or marshmellows in the bottom with fish oil sprayed around the traps. They WILL catch cats however! And the cat's paw will likely be injured if not have a broken foot. So they a cage trap would be the best suggestion with marshmellows in the back cuz they wont lure cats like fish will.

Buy a cage live trap or 2. The farmer (or his wife) will greatly appreciate it to see the coon gone and NO harm has come to their pets.

They have had a cage trap out all summer and they can't get the coons to go in. They have caught the cats a couple of times. I don't know what they are using for bait, but I will recomend the marshmallows.

Another guy I know, recomended bread soaked with honey for coons. Any thoughts?

I use coon cuffs and bandit busters, and don't need a setter for those either. If you do, I haven't. ;) :) The barns on our property are stone foundations, so I just cut a pocket in under one of the stones, put a piece of carp or marshmallow back there, shove my coon cuff, set, in and pat some dirt around the front to kind of blend it. Then I toss a couple of marshmallows outside of the hole, or squirt some fish juice on the ground.
