Well this was my first time setting my traps out today. I put out 7 sets of doubles under this ledge where i always see fox and coyote tracks. I used Duke#3's and older Victor 1 1/2's. My bait was Cravens "just mice" and Carmens Pro's Choice, i also in a few sets sprayed a little gray fox urine off to the side. Can you guys take a look at these pics. and give me some pointers or tips? Thank you for your time.

did u put 2 traps at ever set? if so u should make sure they wont touch or the animal is going to get all twisted up in the chains.id rather put out 14 sets opposed to 7 other then that they look good just watch so u dont get twigs in ur trap jaws.

Yes i put 2 traps at every set. I tried to keep an eye on twigs near the trap, I tried to sprinkle some leaves over the sets.
