I've caught raccoons in a live trap, using pizza for bait.  I once caught one with an unbaited trap.  Set it where I could see it from the house, and one morning I was very surprised to see the trap had tripped and a raccoon was in it.

We've dealt with Trash Pandas for a long time now... Best thing I've ever seen work for leg traps is dog food or cat food. Put a couple of pellets in the trap and get ready to dispatch em! Place the traps along any stream you may have on the place and make sure the corn is taking away from them. They won't mess with anything if they are climbing out of a tree at dark and heading straight for the corn feeders.
Hunting is a way of life: Love it, Teach it, Live it. But most of all.... RESPECT IT and pass it on!

Haven't had a chance to try it yet, but see lots of YouTube videos of guys using their FoxPro calls to pull them out of den trees and dispatch them.

I agree with ZLong19. Remove the corn for now first so they leave it alone then the trap sets will be more productive. I also use "Dog Proof" traps. they will not catch nontarget animals like a foot hold trap and work great. I also use dog and/or cat food placed inside the trap, This keeps birds and other critters from taking the bait during the day.

Not sure of fur price in your area, but her in NE Indiana the fur buyers do not even want them brought in this year. Good luck.

I don't have any live traps, only leg traps. Besides, these coons are not scheduled for relocation if you know what I mean..  @--0--0121

Maybe a hat or some gloves?   ##$%#1119

None of the ones I ever caught were scheduled to be relocated either, I just avoided having to get the neighbor's cats, etc out of any trap I set for the coons, possums and ground hogs that way.

Recipe: #2 trap, tree set, bait marshmallow with a dab of peanut butter equals instant fertilizer. Present pelt price for coon is 1-2 bucks. Worth more as fertilizer with less work. #2 trap will save you lead. The tree set keeps dogs from getting pinched.

Wait a minute! A moment of brilliance for me. SummerBlast Coonskin make your own hat kits for the auction!
