Tomahawk Alkerton Coon Cones is a trap accessory that is designed to target raccoons specifically. It works like a conventional nose cone and it is set up to slide over the end of the trap. Only raccoons can open the mesh screen and enter with ease and not non-target animals like dogs, cats or skunks. It is very easy to use -- no tools required on setting it up and will fold flat in just a few seconds and allow you to store it easily.
Arm your trap and slide Coon Cone over the entrance of your trap making sure the trap door will not be affected. You can also butt coon cone against your trap and zip tie into place. This method insures your trap door will not be affected.
Place a small amount of bait just outside the Coon Cone entrance, more bait inside the entrance but outside the trap. Put most of the bait inside the trap.
Coon Cone is covered with a UV protected plastic except for the port hole entrance door. For most effective use, you should cover your trap when using Coon Cone. If your trap is covered, raccoons will not be distracted by seeing bait through the mesh inside the trap and will easily find the Coon Cone entrance and enter the trap.
