Use an e-caller with coon distress or boar fight. If their in there they will come out. Just be ready to shoot when they do.

Walk in the woods with a squaller and look up in the trees at night with headlamps as you squall; you should find a family or two. Look in big, dead, hollow trees by creeks and riverbottoms.

Havahart and other cage traps work well. Use marshmallows for bait to keep from catching skunks.

If you want to catch skunks too, then use dry cat food.

I like to use a 4" plastic pipe cap to hold the bait.

Works pretty well for keeping the varmints out of the chicken pens, that's for sure! 'Tween that and the ones I shoot with a rifle, they don't stand much chance around here.

to clean out the brain of a ratcoon you take a drill and put a hole in the bottum, take an air hose and blow. found that out today. works well.

I've always hunted with dogs and a .22

You could try trapping it in a cage with some cat food. That always works, but you could also catch a cat, skunk, opossum, or a raccoon...

I've got two so for and I'm making the biggest one into a hat...
