Default calling racoons

We are over run at deer lease with racoons eating corn at our deer feeders. Is there any cassette calls that will call racoons up during the day?

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!

Try a tape of the corn being poured in the feeder
