well anything you put out will attract coons and skunks. your best bet would be corn,keeps everything warm in the winter and they love it. but once you start shooting them its gonna be hard to compete with a bird feeder that they don't get shot at.

If you put out peanuts you will drag all those squirrels from your neighbors feeders. Peanuts are more expensive than sunflower seeds or other seed but it will really bring them in. I used to feed the birds and squirrels when I lived in the city. The squirrels would not even touch the bird seed if the peanuts were out. You can buy shelled peanuts for bird feeders at your pet stores or grain elevators in 50lb bags.

Try this method every time it just seems to attract them, go deer hunting with a high powered rifle lol, just kidding in my experience squirrels like corn and peanut butter.

just build a little platform off the ground about 4 or 5 feet so the dog cant reach it and put the bait ontop of the platform.
