Got this boar in the same trap as the female I got yesterday. Really hoping to have a coyote or cat in my other sets tomorrow. Taking out the corn thieves is nice, but really want to get some fawn killers off the property.

I focus on a spot on the trail where grass/brush narrows the trail down. Then I take note of exactly where the tracks are right in front of the narrow spot. I then bed my trap, and position the pan right where the track(s) are.

There were two traps on that trail about eight yards apart. The second set was placed at another narrow spot just past where a secondary trail joined the main trail.

Here’s my only catch from yesterday’s check.

We did a little trapline fly-by from camp before hopping in the Polaris.

Got my first double. They were raccoons, and I let the closest one go for being too small, but it was still cool to see. Have to pull my line tomorrow morning. Hoping for more than just ring tails in the morning, but still happy to have some success.

Good looking catches on the 21st BT!

That earth anchor rig looks awesome!

I had two catches on today’s check.

This is the second catch on a deer leg set.

We have caught 3 coyotes in a week. I am running 4 traps, but one hasn't produced in 2 years. I am baiting them with domestic dog droppings and a little coyote scent.

Congrats on the coyotes SB!

You might consider moving your traps just outside of the catch circle.

It will increase your chances for another catch.

You’ll need to clean the traps off good before you bed them in new ground.

Good Luck!

The one I caught last night was on the same trap I caught one on Saturday night. I just scraped the blood off with a shovel and put it in the same spot. I am always afraid the blood will make them dig it up or attract buzzards.

You can still catch coyotes in a remake from a coyote catch, but you’ll have more coyotes shy away from the catch circle than enter it.

Out of twenty-five coyotes caught this fall I’ve only had two remake catches; and both were pups.

Now if you happen to catch a cat or coon, those remakes are much more likely to be checked out by coyotes; especially the cat remakes.

BT & Fergeris know a lot more about this than I do, maybe they will chime in.

I actually tried something this last year on a place I trapped. I didn't shot a single coyote I used a catch pole like you would for cats. An I was actually catching coyotes in catch circles the next day. Blew my mind. An old trapper told me to try it do I did an man it made a difference

What is it about the circle that spooks the coyote?

The one on Saturday night was peeing all over as I walked towards it. I figured that would be perfect attractant.

I was wondering that too?

Also how do you release a cat without being torn up? I assume catch pole, but I would think the free paw would go after you.

From what I've latched onto with the catch pole most critters vapor lock when you get them around the neck, coons being the exception. Haven't tried it but I've seen videos of people grabbing fox and cats by the back of the neck and they freeze also, but that is not from personal experience, the few wild critters I've grabbed by hand turned into a cross between one of those high speed chainsaws with a motorcycle engine and a Tasmanian devil.

That would be my experience

No desire to grab something with a mouth full of sharp teeth that could have a good chance of using said teeth on me

Picked up three coyotes on Wednesday including the male in the above post.


This male was the biggest of the three weighing in at thirty-two pounds.
