    I don't if anyone else uses live traps, but some of the places I trap raccoon I am required too so I can release any cats that I catch. As you know these bright shinny traps can be seen for many many yards away and ideal targets for trap thieves, Antis, or any other just plain thief. SO I got the idea of painting them a camo color to try and help to allieviate this problem. I bought the cheapest outdoor spray paint I could find. I got Black, dark brown, tan and dark green. I started by spraying the light color first and ending with black. The black kind of blended it all together ... I hope it works ....... Garry-
