Tag Archives: Racoon trapping trap

My first catch

This is my first raccoon, or any other animal, I have trapped.

I used a dirt hole set with a pile of sticks for a backing. I dropped some sardines down the hole and two days later I had a raccoon.

All last winter while I had been trying to trap a fox I had kept seeing raccoon tracks in the snow at the one place. Then this year during archery season when I was sitting in my tree stand I saw a raccoon at the same place. So at the end of archery season I thought best place to set a trap for a raccoon would be there.


The other day I made a hay set out a field near a spot where there were many fox tracks last year. So I guess I will have to wait and see I can catch a fox.
