You fellas that use drags in the winter for fox and coyots, how do you bed or conceal the drag? Do you just dig a bigger bed and put it under the trap or do you lay it off to the side? New to drags, thanks alot

yup. no need to hide the drag they dunno what it is. and if you want, throw some leaves or snow over it. i use a good size chain and put the drag out of the way of my dirthole set.

Use a branch 6-8 feet long and atleast the thickness of your arm. I look around my set area for them. I looks natural,smells matural and it's one less thing in your packbasket

you dont, throw that baby around a tree or just let it rock. you bury the chain right on the trap just like you normally would.

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying.

Everyone said they just throw the drag to the side so how do you conceal the chain where it comes up out of the trap bed?

I do appreciate the help

dont worry about it, they wont care. when they dig, they dig cause they smell something usually, unless you get a really ornery one. i usually run drags on hay sets. otherwise, a cable steak usually will go in even ground you think is solid.

I use drags or cable off to trees wherever possible.
Fast, easy, and no pounding stakes.
Even more of an advantage in the winter.

just cover it simply with whatever is around your set . Leaves, twigs, snow, whatever
