coyote trapping

I have never trapped these critters before. I live with mostly wooded area around me. can someone give me some advise to trapping these guys. I got lots and they gotta go. I can not find info on here about those hay sets and I do not even know if they will work in the woods. I have alot of no.1.5 will they hold them or do I need bigger. I need spoon fed please. bait lure etc. Thanks in advance

Re: coyote trapping

The 1.5 will hold a cougar if it steps in it right.Just have it anchored good. U will b fine. I would say make a dirthole set in a clearing or along a field edge. Bed the trap about 9 inches back. Use red fox gland lure in the hole and red fox urine around the outside of the set spraying a mist like. Any yote that passes by will check it out.And ware gloves n stay sent free. Make the set n move on. I believe when u stand and admire an keep changing a canine set the odds decrease. JMO. Good Luck!

Re: coyote trapping

1.5 stock traps are on the light side. but if thats what you got just make sure you are using crossed rebar or a cable type stake. 1.75 offsets are a better trap for yotes.
location is everything. if you got mostly woods look for haul/log roads and esp. where they intersect or dump out into a feild or clearing.
dirt holes with a flat/urine set down wind. there are a ton of lures and baits out there but i like russ carmens stuff, larry barrows lures, and morgans pro-sqeeze.

Now your diggin' where the 'tators are!
