    .22 cal rifle is how I kill them. A shot gun, hand gun, pellet rifle, baseball bat, or a shovel will also do a fine job. I'm sure if you really wanted you could get creative and figure some more ways to kill them.

    Fake chicken won't work for bait.....possums don't eat plastic/rubber.
    Raw or cooked chicken meat/bones will work as bait

    Anything smelly and tasty will work as bait. Opossums eat just about everything try some dry dog food with some syrup drizzled over and a few marshmallows. This is coming from an experienced trapper of many years trust you'll have something in your trap within a few nights with such bait.

    Poke holes in a can of tuna for bait. Italso works well.
