Combing calling with trapping

How many of you men/women combine fox/coyote calling with trapping? How did you do on the hunting side?

Re: Combing calling with trapping

Not sure how you meant your question...
But I trap and I call the same properties. Have fun anyway I get them to the fur shed.
Over the years, I want to tell myself I called/shot the smart azz digger Fox or thathere Coyote that left some droppings at my set. But no way to tell, but its still a rush and fun to call.
From my observations, when I call on a property that I have traps, many times the next day I will make a catch(es) in traps weather I shot or not the night before.
Seems they check out the area after I leave.
One method is to do a Coyote howl when checking traps in the morning. Possible for Coyote to be in traps next morning.
Effective method is cables (Cable Restraints) and calling.
Wicked method and never mentioned. (or am I the only one doing this? pm me)
To answer your question,
I do well when the population is stable or high. Sometimes Canines are easier calling and sometimes vise versa.

I know some top notch Fox callers in SE Pa. (the RED ZONE). SE Pa. is noted for high population of Red Fox and gets alot of trapping pressure and 1000's of Reds are trapped and hanging in someone's fur shed right now.
Right now, these same top notch Fox callers are killing 6 to 10 Reds a night depending on how long they want to hunt and the area they cover. So population will play a big part on your calling success in your area.
It all adds up to knowing your area, your Canine population and time spend afield.

I mainly call, but love to trap as well. I have called spots and saw nothing, then had something in my trap there the next day. I like to think of it as I called it in to my trap. Lol.

I actually called a property that I also trap on this year and caught a gray as I was walking into my setup. Watched the whole thing happen....so Yes you can say I combine both lol

Re: Combing calling with trapping

I don't run a whole lot of traps anymore but I usually don't hunt the places I trap. I have a lot of farms to hunt, in fact I just required a new one Wednesday so that gives me 7 farms to hunt now. lol

My name is Moss and i'm a turkey huntin' addict

Re: Combing calling with trapping

Several times after someone was calling on a farm I had set up, the next day had multiple catches. Just this year a place had gone cold after 8 yotes were taken there. Some guys' called there one nite and the next day a double on yotes waited for me.

Often I will howl before leaving an area that is set.

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

I had a grey come in a week or so ago and stop about 3' from my cable when it spotted me. He trotted off and I didn't get him. Was really hoping to see him hit that cable!
