Coyote hay sets ?

I have read on here that coyotes dont like hay sets ? I picked up a really nice big female at one , she had small feet saw her track in mud and thought big red or small yote , wrong huge female,
anyway I just read that some of you are getting coyotes at them In love with hay sets !!! they rock especially in the cold weather ! just asking what you all are doing ? its warm tonight . I work out of twon so when I got home tonight me n the kids went our with our head lamps n reset all our sets . but I have been useing hay in almost all my sets as some cover either with dirt or plain hay set and its been working well ?

really laid on the coyote pee tonight lol hope for the best ! tight chains all

Congrats!

I think you read mountain yotes won't touch a hayset. Field yotes surely will. Ive seen quite a few pictures here of field coyotes in haysets. I'd love to see a mountain dog in one, but doubt that will happen. I'd eat crow to see it.

Re: Coyote hay sets ?

Just remember that you don't need hay to make the "hayset". I only used hay for one season and then just started gathering up a big armfull of long grasses that grow at the edge of roads and hedgerows. Using local grasses might be the ticket to the hayset with mountain coyotes?
The smell of a freshly opened haybale might be some of the appeal, but it's only part of the equation to the effectiveness of the hayset.

Re: Coyote hay sets ?

i caught 3 last year in hay sets...all 3 were big females..i think 2 were 48" nose to bottom edge of the hide and the other was 52"

mine are farmland yotes though..i didnt get a chance to make any at camp...might not be "mountain yotes" but they are in the big woods...but got some fields around...


havent caught a fox in one yet...lol..ive seen guys catch cats in haysets as well...

ive never used the hay set without snow..i reckon it'll still work...i likely wont put any out this year till we get snow or till i get bored..hopefully im feelin better and can get my sets out tomorrow..

doesnt feel like January out there..

Re: Coyote hay sets ?

Thats funny cause as I was setting up three new hay sets today , as I looked around at my fields I wondered if I could just bunch up what was there ? as it all looks the same for the most part am wondering how good they really can see at night anyway ?

Pretty flippin' good! They don't bump into trees on moonless nights under canopies of full foliage! All their senses are running on high octane and firing on all cylinders! Including their sixth sense!
