Free Coyote Instructional

Thought I'd pass this along to aspiring trappers who've posted pleas of "teach me," to the greenhorns (like myself) who don't know it all and are looking to tweak what they've learned, and possibly to the veterans who are looking for the entertainment value.

Clint Locklear's YT channel is chock FULL of goodies, and it's all <span style="text-decoration: underline">FREE</span>! Gotta love that! Of course his and others videos and books offer indepth instruction but...this is quality stuff (despite the lower quality images) and it ought to give the new guys a place to start. Click on link below:

Did I mention it's <span style="font-weight: bold">FREE</span>?

Re: Free Coyote Instructional

I disagree with the pan size on his CDR's. You can't tell me he doesnt have misses with that big of a pan.

Please explain why you feel an oversized pan will cause misses.

Re: Free Coyote Instructional

I made a couple flat sets like his "grass flat set" a couple days ago, but I didn't use any peat moss at all. I had 4 sets, 4 sneaky sets dug up by coyotes in the first two days. I know it was coyotes because there was fresh snow everyday. Traps are clean as always, so I'm convinced they smelled the peat as something out of place. Different dirt DOES have different odors. I'm not saying they knew it was dangerous, but I'm convinced they smelled it and needed to investigate the trap bed before they dug at the hole.
I made 3 flat sets by digging a small depression in the ground, lining the trap bed with nothing but grass from around the set, staked with my nail method, bedded in grass, and covered in grass. For the final covering I had a pair of shears along and clipped the grass about 1" long so I could put alot over the trap without worrying about clogging up the jaws. They trap bed absolutely disappears and there are no foreign odors at all. No peat, no imported dry dirt, no nothing except for what came from the immediate area. I never imagined being able to bed a trap rock solid in fluffy grass, but it worked like a charm.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Re: Free Coyote Instructional

Serrated scissors buddy. Make sure you go serrated, pinch the grass tight between your thumb and fore finger, and only cut about an inch at a time.

I would think with that big of a pan, if an animal steps on the very side, most of its foot wont be inside the jaws. I always thought a smaller pan coverage area was better.
