When setting cable for coyotes I use 1/8" cable exclusively. Made like Hern shows, except for a HD trap swivel at the stake. I have never lost a coyote in 1/8" cable, but do get refusals. I have caught several coyotes that had been caught and chewed out of 3/32" cable, the damage done is not pretty. I would rather have refusals than have a coyote running around with my cable still on him.
Picture attached is a coyote caught with 1/8" cable hung over the low spot on an atv trail, nothing used to hide it.
Don't expect that to happen with every coyote coming down the trail though.
I have never experienced any difference between 7x7 and 1X19 3/32 cable. Loss will be 40% with both.
