Where do you find carp taint?

Between the pelvic anal fins. smile




Also, colloquially referred to as carp choat.

I take a mason jar lid , turn it upside down and wire it down in the middle of the cage.Otherwise they will reach in from the outside. I put peanut butter and grape jelly mix in the lid for their last meal.

I will help revive an old thread by suggesting dry dog food with a splash of liquid smoke in my dog proofs.

I've found dog proof traps to work much better than live traps. I use dry dog or cat food and drip a little fish oil on it. Next I place a golf ball on top and drip a few drops of fish oil on the ball too. The golf ball helps keep the bait dry from rain or sprinklers and might discourage cats from getting caught.

I've caught 65 coons in my back yard in the last two years and I live in town. Got 32 last summer and 33 the year before. I don't bother to trap from Nov. 1 till March 1 because they aren't as active in my area.

I set six traps in clusters of three per set which helps to get more family members passing through because when one gets caught the others mill around it and get caught too. I dispatch them by bopping them on the head with a pipe while blinding them with a flashlight early in the dark morning. Their carcass gets bagged and put in garage freezer and then on garbage day they go into the dumpster. I imagine they are getting buried at the landfill before they even thaw.

If the ones that kept visiting Cookie's wall tent this past fall are any indication, anything from a bag of flour to an old copy of Readers Digest should work. I swear they will try anything in camp.

I've found dry dogfood with bacon grease mixed in works well, damn skunks like it a lot too.

Anything fishy or sweet smelling. Use some sort of visual aid in the trap too. I've used Cotton balls, golf balls. Tin foil...
