    Peanut butter was mentioned ... Take 2 wood screws and screw the lid into a tree. Drill a small hole in the bottom of the jar, near the bottom, to allow deer and coons to lick the jar.
    Be sure the jar is screwed on tight!

    Hi...


    For squirrels...most nuts, including peanuts, and peanut butter. Also sunflower seeds.

    'Possums will come to a mouse, a sardine, almost any 'smelly' meat, cat food, etc. Persimmons are also a favorite.

    'Coons like sweets (honey, marshmallows, etc.). Also fish and shellfish.

    Speaking of corn, I once left a plastic garbage pail in the woods with a bag of corn inside.
    The next day, I found that something had chewed a hole through the plastic lid. When I lifted the lid, a squirrel jumped out. I suspect he may have had some help from a raccoon.

    Sliced fresh peaches work well for trapping raccoons in live traps when suspended from the top to keep them free of ants.

    Our fig tree works pretty good at attracting possums, luckily we don't have racoons.

    Every bait pile I put out for deer bought in coons, possums, skunks, ground hogs and squirrels. My trail cameras got photos of all of them eating at the bait pile.
    I use corn, apples, sweet potatoes, donuts, sticky buns, rolls, sugar beets, bird seed, mineral block, horse feed and pour a gallon of molasses all over the bait pile.
    Bon Appetit!

    Peanut butter spread on limbs, peanuts in shells, bird feed, sunflower seeds, pecans, all work for squirrels. If you really want to attract them put something out that you don't want them into and they will come. LOL For possum and coon dog food either dry or canned works well.
