    1 more coon and 1 more otter. So that’s 12 coons, 2 otters, 1 armadillo, 1 possum.

    I pulled all traps this morning and will switch to a different property next week. This weekend and next week look like a washout with warm, wet weather predicted.

    4 more coons this weekend. They are getting smart to the DP traps, so I will add some cage traps to catch the wily ones.

    3 coons last night. I expected a lot more but it looks like they didn’t really move much. The 3 I caught were all in spots I have never had a trap before.

    2 more coons and a possum. My pistol fell out of my pocket today while I was checking traps in the marsh. Took a couple hours and my friend’s metal detector to find it.

    3 more coons yesterday and a squirrel in a cage trap. One more weekend and I’ll be done for the season.

    now that is serious. Would love to see that pile of fur laid out before going to the sale. If he had done that in 1980, he could go to the beach for the rest of the year.
