Not that I know of... I've never heard of a coon call. But I could be wrong.

Here's what I do. At each of my feeding locations I put out a varmit trap cage. They are around $25-$30 but they last forever. Go buy some marshmellows, the big kind, and put about 4 in each cage. You will have a coon in there every morning. That's how I weed them out, or "control" them if you will. Typically, the first night I'll have the largest coon in the pack in that cage come morning time. ALSO- if you eat cantelope in the summer, put the rinds in the cage, they love them just as much. I typically check mine around 10 or 11am when the deer have already bedded down for the day. Doesn't stop deer activity either. Now I drive right up to mine in my truck and shoot the coon with a .22 and throw it in the back of the truck and put more bait in the cage.
Hope this helps!
