    Wondering if anyone has a secret bobcat/coon mixture scent for pulling in bobcats and raccoons.
    Also all I have for the bobcat is a few leg traps and a Hav-a-hart for the coons.
    However its been my experience that the older smarter coons wont enter the trap for any amount of peanut butter!
    Thanks ahead of time and Merry Christmas!!!

    If it stinks, coons will come. Dunno about bobcats --

    Sardines in oil not mustard or tomato base was killer for me on raccoons. No clue for bobcats. If you have access to creeks for trapping. My most effective set for coon was a water cubby hole set into the bank, and shallow water into the hole. Sardine with juice was on rock above water in back of hole. Trap 1.5 or #2 double coil spring was trap of choice set under water in front of hole, but in the hole. It is a very good game getter. Will catch an occasional muskrat or mink, but mostly raccoons.

    Baby puppies work great, miniature poodle puppies are the best.

    So, I should just stake the puppy in a clearing and bury the leg traps just outside the puppy's reach?

    Yep, that's the way......unless you have a wife............Proctologist charge a lot to remove leg traps.
