Did some coon doggin' a long time ago with some buddies. Lots of fun.
Just last year we started calling for coons at midday, with some success.
Going to try more of it this year. Find what might look like a good den tree, set
up fairly close, do some coon calls, and wait for one to come out of den to
investigate. Helps having a buddy along to do the shootin' while you do
the calling or vice versa.
When placing a trail camera don't just look for a well used trail. What you want to do is look for a freshly used trail off by itself that goes from a north facing ridge, thick forest, brushy knob or some other similar bedding area to a food source. Don't forget water sources. Especially in the summer months the deer need water so look for a good trail going down too a creek surrounded by thick cover and place the camera 100 yards up from the water source.
Scent control is very important...
