Trapping Coyotes

Postby wacocowboy » Fri Mar 03, 2017 11:19 pm

Any of y'all try trapping coyotes? Was wondering what you use to attract them like a scent and what you put in the cage for bait?

We've had success setting snares under woven wire fences in spots it's clear they have been traveling. Killed 8 this winter that way.

Pretty tall order to get a coyote to walk into a live trap. Snares are by far the most effective, but they are also effective on the neighbors dogs and aren't always legal. I like a foothold in a good dirt hole set with a little bobcat meat and a good lure. You get one chance to catch a coyote. If you miss him, he's educated for life. I've got trail cam video of a coyote that circled one of my sets for three nights before he walked in.
They are by far the most challenging critter to catch, IMHO.

Contrary to what some folks think, those are good coyotes. You need to buy that guy a steak dinner.

Back when we had sheep, fence snares where without a doubt the second most effective method. The m44 cyanide guns ranked first.

Coyote is smarter than most people trying to trap them. That is like calling you get one chance that dog won't be back if you blow it.
Most effective way calling over here I have found is 15 ladder stand buckshot and decoy in this thicket.
This is one of my favorite calling spots.

One of our friends/neighbors was a sniper in the military. He comes over as often as possible and just picks them off - wearing a full camo outfit that looks like a bush. Love him!

Amen to that. We use decoy dogs quite a bit, and it helps with the smart ones.

I know a man that's keeps them full on deer meat and they wont bother anything else, you just need to mix some of that old green anti-freeze in it so it does not freeze before they eat it.

I like snares just can't release if you don't like what you catch.
