Welcome to the site...   I would say  hunting coons without dogs would be tough...   Unless you come and sit by my compost pile at night... ;D

I use to run a trap line when I was in high school for coons how i paid for a big chunk of my first truck.  But we also had 2 blue ticks and a walker an would get 3/4  that way.  I would say trapping them would be your best bet if you don't have a dog.  Either that or try to find some big old  trees that have a ton of coin scat around them and try to catch them coming out of them at night.
