Great advice! I think I'll put 2 or 3 DP's around each of our feeders since they love that corn!

Which makes me wonder, if you catch one and it starts complaining about being caught, will the others high tail it outa there? If so, will they come back the next night?

I was thinking of trying dry cat food. And I thought I'd continue to drip some lure around. Which makes me think of...

Two more questions:
First, how much bait do you put in a DP trap? I saw one video where the guy filled one to overflowing. That just didn't look right to me... I was thinking of filling it to just below the trigger.
Second, is it possible to use too much bait and lure?

Bear with me boys; this 73 y.o. dog is trying to learn new tricks! And while I have always believed experience is the best teacher, I also believe what my Daddy used to say: "It'd a wise man who learns from the experience of others."
