Most states have trapping organizations and have their own websites. If that is the case in Georgia it would be a good start. If not, you should check out the magazine Fur, Fish, and Game.

I have never caught coons in footholds,but I catch about 15-20 a year in live traps for removal for nuisance purposes for farmers.They will walk right in a box trap for tuna fish,peanut butter,jelly,dog food or cat food soaked in meat grease.they should be easier than most other animals to trap.You are probably going to catch a few oppossums also.good luck!!

It is not even coon trapping season yet. If I were you I would stop trapping coon right now.
