So, regardless of how much it helps turkey production.....

I have now more raccoons and possums than I've ever had before.

If I was to run a few traps to try to thin the herd, what would people recommend?

What sort of traps will catch both critters, how hard is it to do, etc?

My thought, when I get up there for say a 3 day weekend, set traps in evening and run in morning for a couple days, then just remove when I am not there.

I have one game cam out, that just about every nite a pair of coooons walks by it.

Dog proof traps are what your after. Duke dog proofs are good traps, trapsusa.com makes a good dog proof. Easy to set, easy to catch **** and possum.
Easy as cable the trap to a log, fill with cat or dog food, place large marshmallow on top and wait for your catch
Is this what you are talking about?

Thanks for all the input, I am gonna give the DP traps a try. Now, all I need to do is find someone who can make a hat for me out of one of the hides.. :D
