I went to check the 14 coon sets this morning and had only caught a possum and a 'rat. I had pocket sets and used sardines and even some shellfish oil and some other coon lures at some. I thought Id have a least a few....but didnt catch a one.

I was told coon dont run when the moon is so full and bright....and last night it was BRIGHT!! Is this true?? I was able to check most of the traps from the canoe withought a light...in the dark.
OR...are the coon still feeding on berries and crops?
Thanks

LOCATION-LOCATION-LOCATION. If the sign is there give your traps a night or two.But if you did not set on sign ? Well you got a good leason.
I have a LOCATION where the coon,fox and what have you all come to eat persimons,there must be about 50 trees.Man can this place get HOT.Guess what this year no persimons! NO coon ! NO fox !And Newt aint gona set NO snares.

Tim listen to what Newt is saying I will also add this Im not a big time coon trapper but I have acouple years of running hounds under my belt and can tell you that in my location when there is a full moon I find its more the big boars feeding than anything else.

Im not saying the sows or smaller coon dont move they just dont seem to travel on those nights like the boars do.

Dont feel bad , I am not really having a good coon year myself .Maybe after deer season I can get serious again and put up a pile .
