    That is cool I wish the Coons were where I could see them.

    When I was doing Furs killed over 200 Coons off one area the next year wasn't worth Trapping. Thing is back then even Skunks and Grinners were bringing good money. Made Down Payment on my first Farm mostly with Fur money.

    The line was spread out over several acres, (2 farms) but the most traps running at any time where 20-24. I also have to work so wasn't able to run as many as I would liked.I set dbls at most sets,and we pulled several off them..I had one 40 acre field that produced 22 yotes on 4 traps. They just kept coming to die..

    Unbelievable.....Must be something there that attracts them. Do you have lots of rabbits there?

    There was a very large expanse of mature timber that lays just north of said field.The field had 2 shallow draws that ran out about 1/3 into it,they traveled the draws to enter the main prairie. I set both draws.I suppose I was pulling yotes from a few thousand acres in those "travel corridors".

    I have another farm as such that yeilds 15 -20 annually,but it is much larger.. Sometimes you just get lucky and find them kind of spots.
