Coyote Specific Sets

Hey guys, just wondering what sets would be useful in targeting just coyotes, and not fox. There are not enough fox and too many yotes in this particular area, and would like to thin it out a bit. I know its a tough task, both being canines, but maybe theres a lure that fox don't care for, and coyotes favor? Any thoughts would be appreciated

Re: Coyote Specific Sets

Set the trap back further than you would for fox. Like 12" is not to far for yotes. This can help avoid fox catches. Same sets.

The difference between dreamers and achievers is action.
One try is worth a thousand guesses.

Re: Coyote Specific Sets

Coyotes range is much more widespread than a fox. I find fox concentrated more so to fields than in the forest and coyotes covering a lot of forest area. Look for accessible areas of deeper forest land that hold coyotes and you may avoid some fox that way as well.

Heavier trap pan tension as well.

Re: Coyote Specific Sets

you could crank your pan tension up, but you are fooling yourself if you think trapping a few fox is going to make an overall difference in the population.

A haiku is just like a normal American poem, except it doesnt rhyme and is totally stupid.

Re: Coyote Specific Sets

pan tension and bed distance only two things i can think of, and that's just so fox dont get snapped when they work the set, because if a yote will, a fox will, and visa versa. heavy pan weight and a backed off trap will help reduce fox snaps, but dont be surprised if you still end up with one.

Re: Coyote Specific Sets

I'd go ahead and trap those foxes and enjoy them while you still can. You can't put wildlife on a shelf and save it for later. Trap them if you have them. Coyotes kill them 365 days a year. In reality, you are barely even in the equation.
