(Night vision is turning out to be an awesome investment). you said.......explain please you mean goggles etc? thanks
Well I doubled up security around the coop yesterday to protect from digging and funnel him into my traps. I also cleared out the brush from the corner of the yard where we saw him by the fence, so he will be more exposed if he comes around. (Night vision is turning out to be an awesome investment).
Right now I feel like my efforts to catch him have been a bit schizo. I've got lights and stuff setup to keep him away, as well as traps to draw him in. But now that I'm confident about my nighttime security, I think need to shift gears, get rid of the deterrents, and bait him in all the way.
The best part is that I know where he is coming from, the path he is taking to the coop, as well as the time of night he is likely to return. I'm pretty certain I saw him last night, but my dog opened the door and when I tried to push her back in she knocked over a metal bucket LOL, and I didn't see it again.
