set this out today and built 10 more cubbies and set out 3 corn boxes the farmer was cutting the beens so i could drive the truck along the creek and fix up my old sets
you can see the leaves in Front of the pipe that is where we will bed the trap and cover with the leaves i will use a drowner lock and cable on this set so the coon will get away from my set and i wont have to rebuild it
Mine have a bottom attached to keep the feed off the ground. Some of the tubes are made from 2" pipe and others are made from 3" pipe. The bottom is a 4" PVC end cap, with holes drilled for water drainage. My tube has a U-shaped notch approx. 1 1/2" wide and 2" long, for the feed to spill out. The tube is attached to the base with two bolts and nuts. I wire my feeders to the tree in two places to keep the tube stabilized. The top of the tube is covered with an end cap of PVC. I have spray painted mine flat black to blend in with the woods so that thieves would not easily see them. I am feeding a mixture of dogfood, deer corn, and mini marshmallows. In my area, most of the coons are eating the dogfood and marshmallows, but are leaving the corn. I have gotten to the point where I am going to quit using the corn and just stick with the marshmallows and dogfood. I have 25 stations out, and have been baiting them for a month. I tried doing one for bobcats with just dogfood, but they weren't attracted to dogfood.
