Cleaned a bunch of crabs today so I ground up some guts, gills and shell pieces. Also ground some fish pellets to dry it up a bit. Then added about an ounce of castor based lure and some fish oil. Also added some sodium benzoate as a preservative. Hope to try it out soon.

That mix oughta work good. We had a crawfish boil the other day and I was thinking that the shells of the crawfish might work well too.

Snagged one more coon this morning......16 coons and 4 possums total.


I'd love to be able to see a density map of the coons and possums around me to see what effect I'm having. I don't know whether I'd be disappointed or really happy.

Got another coon this morning. It's amazing at how consistently they keep coming. We've been catching "another coon" about every 3-4 days since early March.

Total 17 coons and 4 possums

Took all DP's up the morning. Had 2 that had been robbed over night by mice. The sponges were shredded inside the traps and the corn center was eaten.

I’ve heard a square sponge with some bacon grease on it will clog a yotes stomach and kill it as well. No idea if this is true.

The power of the sponge……….. grin

My traps have been under water for days now with all the rain. I’ve really just been waiting on it to dry up so I can retrieve them and call it off for a while…..I checked them this morning though and I’ll be danged if a coon didn’t trip one that was half submerged in water…….

Total 18 coons and 4 possums...….

Update...……..The trapping efforts are finally paying off. This is the biggest group of turkeys that I've seen here on the home front in twelve years...…It's usually only one or two here and there......I've also got what seems like an endless supply of racoon in the area due to the location. I think knocking them back may have helped.

Looks good. I'm experiencing similar results this year and have also seen more turkeys traveling than in recent years. Looks like we may have had a good hatch this year.

It’s very promising but I’m not gonna draw any hard conclusions from it just yet. It’s very possible that it’s just coincidental. In another 2-3 years though….if I see a substantial change in the turkey population around me then I’ll have to assume it’s a result of my trapping efforts.

My son and I have trapped 20 coons and 2 possums just off my 40 acre block in less than a month. No wonder that single hen I saw all spring never hatched a clutch. I'm pissed at them. It's started to trickle down slow now but he's hell on shooting them with his 17 hmr in the trap.

Yeah, it's really surprising how many are out there. I thought the same thing....A turkey hen doesn't stand a chance of hatching a nest with this many critters running around the woods every night. Make sure to hit 'em hard in Feb/March so that your place is good and clean during nesting season.

I can tell you for a fact that trapping will help your turkey population. Ive been trapping 380 acres for more than 3 years now and just had the best turkey season ive had on that property. I'm also seeing a lot of hens and poults on my trail cams. I am however seeing several coons around my feeders now but just after turkey season ended I wasn't seeing or catching any

CNC, thanks for starting this post. I've had 7 traps out for 5 days with the foam (pieces of sponge from Home Depot) soaked in fish oil. I've caught 5 racoons.
