I have a short break in work/farming and sounds like our 'farming partner' wants to declare war on the raccoon population that ravaged his corn crop throughout the summer. He came up with 40-50 used dog proof traps and I'm supposed to get him started. Not much thought involved--at least not in the beginning. There's a 12" wide path crossing 1/4 mile of pasture headed straight to the corn field from the most likely coon haven. I predict the first 2-3 nights to be an all out slaughter. Pelts are worthless so this is nothing more than population control.
