There is a guy on the FB trappers forum commenting on how many he got on a specific bait...

Their living in a rock wall close to a very high dollar home and I'm afraid of ricochets.

Is there some scent on the market for some rut action?

Honestly though, I think a call work for them.  When they are out, they always chirp.

Need to do a radiator flush on your pick up or have some coolant laying around? If you want em dead without shooting thatís how Iíve done it. They like it just as much as the neighborhood cats so be wary.

I've read twice that Cantaloupe is the best bait for them.
