I tell you what I do..but I can drive so for what its worth. I catch with live traps from other farmers and other places with nuisance coon..businesses etc.. all year long. I also have 2 feeders out for the coon to keep them in the area, to work my young dog near home. Just to try and keep somewhat of a balance I hope. It seems to be working

I kept feeders out one year and when turkey season came around the game warden thought I was baiting turkeys and took my feeder

Don't shoot everyone you tree.If the dogs worked the track hard to get him up shoot him out but most of the time let him live to run again until you get liscence.Where I live there are plenty of coons but alot of people shoot everyone out. I was doing that now I have stopped shooting all of them out. The dogs would look up and shut up after you got in there waiting to hear the thud when he hit the ground to jump him. Hoe that helps probally isn't what you wanted to hear but thats the only way I know to keep them around.

Make a bucket feeder and hang it from a tree, that way turkeys or deer cant bother it. A bear and squirrels can but nothin else will be able to. This is the one I made and use, have it on 5 acres of property and every year i trap at least 10 coon off of it.

I keep the top on, get ya some grape kool-aid or coon potion and put in with the corn and pour some hot water in it, and you'll have coon there.

Never tried the coon potion. I've always had good luck with a tire feeder use corn filled with water then I dump a pack of the grape cool aid on top. If I'm putting a feeder in a new spot I take some anise extract and dribble a little on the tire. That stuff is real strong smelling and coons love it. Gets em coming in quick. Only problem with it is if you have a lot of bear around they like it too....

You have several good bits of advice on here But the main one I would do is, stop shooting out your coons. and on the bucket feeder put 1 hole on each side of the at the bottom of the bucket, dont put no more than 2 holes in your bucket, Then get a 3/4'' to 1'' coupling and glue it in place, but if you are using sour corn then i wouldnt make the bucket that way. The easiest thing to do is make the bucket like I said, go to your local feed store and buy you a 50lb bag of RECORD RACK (berry blend flavor). its $10 for a 50lb bag.

A coon loves sour corn. The corn being soured helps cut down on some of the other animals eating it so much. Around here we have so many squirrels that dry corn in a plastic bucket ends up having holes chewed all in it and when you go back to add feed a dam squirrel runs out the feeder. Squirrels might eat a little sour corn but not nearly as bad as the dry... but like the post above says. It doesn't matter what kind of feed you put out if they've all been killed off in an area. Only thing that will help that is time for them to filter back in from the surrounding areas if there's good numbers there. Or you can try trapping and relocating some and hope your feeders help hold them in your area. If you don't catch them from far enough away though they'll just go right back where they came from. Also, in most states relocating any animals that can carry rabies is illegal so if you did that just be smart about it.
