yesterday was my slowest but i expected it. i have said this a bunch of times, as the season progresses each time we get a new temp. low for the season and it is 7 or 8 degrees colder then the previous low, they don't run well. if the next night is the same temps they will start to run again. they next week or so should be dynamite.

I sure hope you guys are right. Halfton and I are starting our coon/ mink/rat line saturday and if we dont catch much he will be upset. We have some new areas to trap do to the fact we lost a mile of creek to another trapper. Its tough to see the big guy disappointed.

There is a silver lining in our operation. Neither of us are organized for this line!!! So if we dont catch much he cant blame it all on me this year!!!!!

It's interesting how they move at different times on different days. I have been feeding coons in my backyard, out of unset, DP's for 2 weeks. I have a game camera set up. Some nights they are there an hour after sundown. This morning, at 5am, nothing had been touched all night. When I left for work at 5:45, I saw flashes of light from the camera going off.

Didn't make it home Friday night to make any sets so I put out out 11 DP's Saturday afternoon for a 1 day run, rewarded with 1 grinner, 1 cat, and 2 nice XXXL boar coons, took pics but can't get them transferred over, will keep trying. Looks like I will have 3 days next week then my trapping season for 2012 will most likely be over.

They are not running around me any where.

Hit and miss on them it seems.
It's supposed to be above freezing tomorrow night, so we'll see.

I pulled the majority of my line today...just not a lot of tracks along the banks and the toilets sites have dried up scat. Not even having luck catching barn coon in cages.

Its almost an embarrassing season so far. Picking up enough rats to make things tolerable.

There's been a lot of flybait use in this area this year too.

People keep using flybait, and coon hunting and trapping will be a thing of the past !

I'm afraid to sell the caracasses because of the flybait.

Have some more areas to set tomorrow, so we'll see.

Seems everyone is talking about using flybait.

Trouble is the farmers tell me they are using it.
I know that a lot of friendships are going to be put under a lot of stress because of this.

Guess I've been lucky, the farmers I trap on have not used any of the fly bait.

On another note though, one of the properties I trap, he has race horses, his care taker traps the coon from spring until I start in November. He caught 80 coon on that farm just this past spring and summer. :(

I put out 2 Dp's Friday and had 1 coon Saturday that was dead in the trap and a 2ft. stake pulled halfway out and bent. I had set that trap close to one of his game cameras and asked him to look at it to see if a coyote had tried to take it. We looked at the shots and seen it was two dogs that were the culprits, both dogs had collars on too.

I may have to pull my line Tuesday if they don't run tonight and Monday night. The farm I trap I usually catch about a dozen or so coon each year. This year I am stuck at 7 coon so far. Three XXXlg coon (one could be a XXXXlg) and four XL coon. Tracks aren't really present that I can see. The high bank trails have leaves on them and usually this time of year the trails are mud/bare with no leaves. Kind of strange for this farm. I set one area a couple days ago on the same creek and nothing at all. I am near den trees and right on a trail towards the creek with z-traps. This is the section where the high bank trails have leaves on them. Possibly a die off? Farmer doesn't use fly bait - thank goodness.

I sure hope you guys are right about the coon moving better this week. I set up 2 farms yeasterday and caught 2 coon on the one. The other farm is what i consider the second best farm I have. I found only a few good trails this year but this is the first time EVER that i didn't catch anything the first nite there. I also found out the one farm already set up they "removed" 28 coon this summer from it. they set the barn plus they set up the back field near the woods. Fly bait was "one" of their "removal" tools. that is the first time I have heard anybody using it on one of the farms I trap. Hope that doesn't spread. I have over 60 dp's out right now and will be setting up a couple more farms tomoro.

Farmers on 7 farms I've talked to have shot or box trapped and then shot them over 160 coon here. Couple of others sort of hinted of using fly bait. Saw some very good coon trails going to corn before season and now leaves on them and no sign or mud tracks on leaves since. Even took coondog in a couple of these spots and only tree 1 coon in each spot. Other places seem like their leaving the coon alone and having some good to excellent catches with dog and traps.
