I do just like Itrapny does except I tie a streamer of flagging from the top of the stake so I don't miss any sets. In a marsh everything tends to look the same and many times landmarks are few and far between.
I just use suveyers ribbon and attach it to the cattails near the set. That way I can keep my stake length down below 2 feet and they fit it the packbasket better, not to mention it will hold a coon better if he can't get to the stake.
