|atllaw||Thanks guys. We found out about a week ago. I suppose I should post it in the prayer request but it's killing me to think about it let alone talk about it.|

Jesus, please bless and care for atlaw and his wonderful bride.

Thanks for all the advice. I'll file it away for future reference.
Since I started this my wife has become very ill with cancer, again actually, and it has spread to her bones.
So, no trapping for me this year...

|wormbobskey||This is a simple DP bait I use year round for coon when I do animal control work. Pelletized fish food, molasses and anise oil. Mix it all up and put just enough to come to the bottom of the DP's trigger. Sprinkle a little around the trap and it you want a little extra enticement give the trap a shot of plain fish oil.|

My coons like mini marshmallows and maple syrup. I only put 4-6 marshmallows in my DPs.

i prefer dry DP bait so the works don't get gummed up
bait is 50-50 dry cat food and generic fruit flakes/loops
fill tube only 1/4-1/3 full AFTER you put a marshmallow UNDER the trigger
run a sparse trail of bait from trail/shoreline to the DP OR a trail of fish oil
anchor trap where they CANNOT get ahold of anything or they get leverage to get away/out of trap
if mice clean out your trap, put a golf ball or upside down paper cup on top of DP
do NOT engage the dog all the way in the triggers notch, keep it about 1/2 way
ALSO, you'd be wise to join your state trapping assn, Google it, then ask some officers off their site for a mentor to ride with in, your area. THEN, you are in the information loop of the FREE trappers ed classes, meets, fur sales/pick ups, conventions and attend ALL you can. This alone opens MANY doors. At least it did for me!
hope this helps
