Cr's

Hello, just getting into cr's this year. Can you give me averages on loop diameter and bottom height for fox and yote? Also, if setting a trail for both, do you run "taller" loops on the outsides/ends/beginings of a trail so the fox will go under yet still take the yotes/ smaller diameter/lower on the insides of the trail for fox??
Any suggestions appreciated!

I'll keep my money, guns, ammo, and health care; you can keep your change

I know it's not conventional, but I run 9" loops 9" off the ground for everything. I give them a chin lift and a ducker with vegetation to guide their face in the loop.
I've caught reds, cats, coyotes, coons, and a deer with these numbers.

Excellent info 17, I'm not a cable guy but plan to have some out next season. Hoping to sit the certification course in Clearfield this June.

Re: Cr's

Always hunting's question is a catch 22.If you set the fox cable first and it gets caight and a coyote comes along he will eat the fox then maybe go along and get caught in the next higher cable.If you catch a coyote first the fox isn't even going to think about running the same trail with the coyote there unless the cables are a couple hundred yards apart. Best guess is to set for what you are most likely to catch and then throw in a couple different ones for the off chance you could catch something else.
