We do a water line heavily here. All sets are on drowners. I'll play with feeders a bit this fall to see what works. Additionally I'll start using feeders at some of the places I've done little scouting at so far. If I can pull them in now, they should remember the free meals later. Thanks again!

They are a good tool if you have limited time, and would like to be able to pull them all into a small area. The reason it worked for me is I had a busy schedule and I don't trap full time. When I'd have two days off of work the feeders made it easier for me to catch a good percentage of coons in one night.

A few times before my vacation I'd set 3-4 feeders with 6 dps per feeder. I'd often have 10-15 coons caught the next morning. I could set those 3-4 feeders in about 30 minutes, and didn't have to look around for sign etc. The only feeder that was literally right on city limits I ran the entire month of December caught 25 coons total, and the most was 5 in a night there.

I have no doubt that if I could continue running all of those feeders I would eventually pull at least 15-20 coons per feeder. There were a number of them that were easily over 10 per feeder. The most coons I counted in one shot on the feeder that caught 25 was 9 coons at once. There were obviously multiple families of coons visiting it throughout the night. The problem was my feeders were spread out over 80-100 miles, and you just can't get to them unless you're full time trapping.

This year I intend to run about 10 feeders close to home, and the farther away areas I'll be coon trapping on sign. I've got my second kiddo due today, and my time's going to be limited for prep work this season. It's a good year to have a kiddo as the prices don't seem to be too great anyways.

From what I've gathered if you can give them 2-3 nights of eating for 4 weeks those coons will find their way back for more.


Eventually everything must die.
