Re: Dirty Traps
One of my most successful coyote sets is a very fast remake, you just need to catch that first one. Debris will be piled up at the stake, with the trowel bowl it out and find the dirt hole and round/clean it out a little bigger and facing straight up. If there was no original dirt hole easy enough to make one in the debris pile. Put some bait, generally a big gob of meat, in the hole, cover it about an inch with dirt from the circle, reset the trap in whatever condition it is directly over top of the bait, blend in the trap. Don't know if it matters at all but I scoop and toss away any obvious blood from the killing the yote. Its a really fast set with everything loose and chewed up, guess its a covered bait set.
