Can you use 220 conibear traps? If so, use cheap dry cat food in a bucket with a 220 blocking the bucket. If you cannot use that, make a dirt hole and set a #11 Long spring or 1.5 coil sping at the hole. Block where the coon can only step on the trap to get tot the bait. Good Luck

We can't use 220s on land in Ohio, the biggest you can use is a 155, 5" jaw spread. 220s have to be in water and anything over 7" has to be submerged. I bought a 155 to try out with a bucket, but have been afraid to deploy because of the housecats.

For bait, I do pretty good on marshmallows and/or grape jam if there's cats around and canned mackerel if there's not. I put the jam in an ice cream cone or use a piece of bread to hold it in.

With box traps ice cream cones work good for me, you can just fill and toss them in the back of the cage and the jam won't all run through the cage.
