    I’m just curious as to whether or not anyone has noticed a decline in the raccoon population. I’m trapping some promising locations here in Greene County with a good amount of sign but my catch is lower than I had expected. Just wondering if maybe distemper went through before season since I’m not even seeing dead ones along the road.

    I had the same issue.  A lot of sign but lower numbers than I had expected.  I trap in Muscatine County.

    I was wondering if maybe distemper had spread statewide with such a high population. I spoke to one guy and he told me a friend of his in Guthrie county had seen a drop in numbers as well.
