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.

atllaw 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.

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

Thanks, Dinny

41 magnum 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

Trapper John
