Re: Newbie question trapping wooded public land
Pocket sets are my go to when im not using coon cuffs. Use fishy baits/sweet baits for coon, I use 1 1/2 coil springs for them, coons are drivin by water so space them out in the creek.
Fox and coyote I use 1 1/2 fox #2 for coyote. Meat baits worked well for me. Stay clean when setting k9 traps, take the rust off your traps, use gloves (don't touch yor bait and lures with gloves) and wax them, when you do dirt hole sets make that trap firm! Don't let flip flop in the bed, no moevemt.
Mink make your self a cheap box for a conibear with muskrat for bait, no conibear use a pocket set with muskrat or fresh fish like trout , panfish etc.
DP tip, I've learned fast that mice will clean you out every night, so the guys in here told me a styrofoam cup to cover it or a golf ball. Marshmellow under the trigger with peanut butter for bait for me.
If you got any muskrat take your 110 conibear a and put them in thier runs or even better, over the holes if you find them, if you find a hole and it had dusty trail in the water coming out of it, it's occupied.
I don't know how experienced you are so this might of been a waste of time but you got any questions at all PM me, keep your traps clean for those coyotes and foxs !
