For fox I like to be about 4in. back from the hole with about 1/4 in of dirt on the pan. If you are just after coyote I would be back around 9inches and offset the trap to around 3 oclock. If both are in the area split the difference and go around 6. hope this will help.

FWIW, I use approx 7" back and make sure it's the LOWEST POINT in the surrounding dirt! I sift approx 1/4 +/-.
I also add two "guides". One at the dog, and one at approx 2" in front of the trap.
