dog proof for coons

12 posts in this topic

Anyone have a preference for dog proof for coons. I am extending my trap lines next year but must go with dog proof in these areas. Also does anyone have a favorite live trap of choice?

There are a number of them on the market and they vary greatly in price. For speed I prefer lil'griz getter or egg trap. Price wise the DP is half the price but take more time to set. Hope that helps.

Nothing but good from what i hear with griz getters. I plan on getting a dozen. They are expensive, but keeping the [PoorWordUsage] out of your traps might be worth it. Most skunks don't get caught, but people claim some do.

Grizz's are the best out there. Supply is short as Gary Bonnet is also in the logging bussiness and his father has health problems, Gary hand makes each trap.. Get them while you can.. Most supply houses are out.

My friend near Pine Island caught 983 coon in all Grizz's last fall in 4 weeks

Now that is some intense coon trapping to maintain an average of 35 coon per day for 28 days. I've busted my tail in a good year to average 20/day for a week and it nearly killed me. This guy must be made of steel.

Everyone is out of grizz, but the black hole adn trapmaster seem to work well. If you want a good dela by a few dozen black holes before they are all gone.

Are the Grizz's cat proof. One of the farms I trap there are cat all over the place. The farmer said kill them all, but they are his wifes.

not cat proof, but lowere your chances of catching a cat. More cat proof than a 22o with fish. You can use anise or sweet bait to lower you odds even more.

    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.
