Coon Bait-How can I trap a porcupine for bait? How could I catch coon along a hillside where there is no stream? What bait should I use when I canít get fish? Can the coon locate the trap by sense of smell and are they afraid of the odor of human beings?
It is no trick to catch the porcupine; just bait the trap with salt. You can catch a coon as well along the hillside as along the streams, providing that he travels there regularly. Make a hole in the bank or under a stump, place bait in the hole, and set the trap in front, covered. If you canít get fresh fish, smoked herring is good; so is chicken or any kind of fowl, muskrat or bird. Scent with fish oil and a drop of oil of anise. The coon will not be frightened by the human odor or that of the trap.
