Re: can someone tell me what the deal is?
I have till jan 19. I already tried dirthole( fox gland), hay, flat, and bait sets. Lures used- aged fox butt gland, Caven's fox gland, violater 7, cachottier, and otter lure. The dirthole set had been worked first night, but the stinking thing's paw was 1" left of the pan.
I haven't tried coyote urine, Lennon's coyote mating season blend, a urine only post set, or blind set. As stated already, the trail I KNOW they use is springy ground ( freeze problems) and has deer use it, which means deer flipping traps off would be an issue. Springhole set- requires drag or grapple, not sure I'd want to be trying to find a perfectly blending in coyote without snow. Plus the springs may still get the frost ice at night- it gets cold down in that hollow- often 10 degrees less than where my house is. Some raccoon would probably get in it anyway.
I may try one of Zag's cut bank sets, but what to use in the hole ( if I can dig a big and deep enough hole with the rocks we have). I will be getting some wild turkey parts tomarrow, you think using that as a bait, feathers and all, may get them?
