Just wondering how much lure & bait anyone else uses at dirt hole set. Ive been useing a chunk of Beaver meat the size of a golf ball & some gland lure in hole. Is it to much meat Ive had coyotes come in to check it out but they dont try to dig it out.Would I be better off useing a small amount?

Put the bait down the hole 1st then a piece of rabbit fur on top. I put my lure on the rabbit fur. If they cant see the bait they will dig. A little fur gives it added eye appeal.

I use more bait and urine than most think are necessary. I am competeing with dead piles and deer carcasses so no one can ever convince me that you can use to much bait. I'd recommend purchasing some good bait and urine from a reputable lure maker, learn to properly present the set, then start killing the coyotes.

Ogorman says they can tell how much bait is there by smell and want a good sized one. He says like a pound. I don't use quite that much but put a fairly large scoop of homemade bait in the hole. Like Bill says, scent sets rock the lull period we are now in. I like a good amount of Yote Nuts gland lure or Bill's Swampdog on the top rim if a hole set.

I have read hoofbeats no less than 10 times cover to cover....Regardless of how often I read it, I always find somthing new/useful buried in his writings...... The book is a tough read the first few times, but in the end it is the best money I have ever spent on trying to learn about coyotes.

The trap is offset 3in. to the right and 6-7ins. back from hole. they are stepping 2 inchs right of trap, and back alittle, this happened 3 or 4 times at different set loctions.

Try a fairly good size backing behind the hole and set your trap behind the backing.....You and the coyote may be in for a surprise... ( Locklears Teachers Of the Night DVD)Best money I have ever spent.
