They got bumped. Give it a little while and they will return hopefully.

There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people asking questions.

Re: WHY AM I NOT CATCHING ANYTHING

It took me 3 weeks to catch my first coyote, then 12 days later I caught my second coyote in the same field. Coyotes move alot, they'll be in an area for awhile then move to another area. They make their rounds so to speak. Just have some patience, they'll be back sooner or later.

My name is Moss and i'm a turkey huntin' addict

Re: WHY AM I NOT CATCHING ANYTHING

Patience is key after deer season. They should of moved in high gear last night. After deer season you can sometimes expect the lull in set activity.

The difference between dreamers and achievers is action.
One try is worth a thousand guesses.
