Opossum Round-up! (with Maha Chanok pics!)
« on: June 30, 2012, 02:16:23 PM »
I purchased an animal trap from Harbor Freight for less than $25 dollars to try and catch a raccoon that nealy cleaned out my Cogshall Mango tree.. I have set it three nights and caught an Opossum every night..




And just in time too!

These boys starting falling off the tree yesterday!

Nice fruit and nice catch. What are you baiting the trap with?
