Dog position. I'm wondering if the coyote is tripping the trap with his toes while the pad of his foot is on the loose jaw, which in turn flips his foot clear.

How far away from the bait are you setting your trap?

What brand of trap? Sorry I'm asking so many questions. It's just I've never had to rotate my trap position but have never had your trouble also

I am getting snapped on #4 Sleepy Creek double long springs. I have a dozen of those, though, 2 #4 Duke 4 coil, 3 #3 older Victor LS and another older #4 LS, brand I don't remember.
The only catch I've had was in Sleepy Creek.

I'll try it. I've tried everything that people have suggested.
The bait-to-pan distance got drilled into me by the Locklear vids; YouTube and dvd. He says "confused fox trappers set tight to the attractant".

From what I gather, Clint Locklear learned primarily from Craig O'Gorman, and O'Gorman is uber successful at catching coyotes.
I've studied O'Gorman, Locklear, Mark June, and J.C. Conner and have caught one coyote.
And I have the coyotes there to catch.
Mark June now lives right down the road from our place. He's in LaVernia and we're in Pleasanton. I'm cosidering asking him for on- site instruction, if he would do it.

He mite. That's funny about Pleasanton I'm sitting with a guy eating with a guy from there. Lol.
I love to read ogormans stuff I bought his book. That's the good thing about trapping it's an individual thing to a certain point. Mark June is good as well.

Yeah, big dirt holes and little dirt holes and flat sets and compass sets and flat sets next to carcasses with no bait just lure to avoid catching a buzzard and that's about it.
Sorry I've been a New Year's party and not online.

I've gotten two coons and a wild dog.

Last year was the first year I tried my hand at trapping. I connected on coons, opossum and skunks. Still haven't gotten a yote or a bobcat.

Heading to the lease tomorrow to run a small line till Monday. Think the cold will kill all the movement?

I agree with right behind the dog. Coyotes walk up and smell things right in front of their feet. I have caught a few using that method.

Myself, I set about 9" back from the attractor and offset about 3" to one side, which side depends on the most logical approach direction. Study those tracks in the dirt, try to decipher where the coyote came from, where it stopped to look things over, and what side it approached the from. I've noticed that the more unnatural anything around the set looks, the more paranoid coyotes are, even if they don't suspect much they'll circle a set a time or two, if to much looks out of place they'll just go on by, so you did enough to get them to investigate, I believe you just need to get the pan in his approach lane. Now Fergeris he's caught enough of them they hang around his sets because they think they smell one of their cousins. Hey Eric

I'm excited to get into trapping. Our lease has lots of coyotes and bobcats, and of course coons. I've bought a dozen snares and half dozen traps with some lure and scent bait, already have 4 dogproofs for coons. Next weekend is 4 day weekend for me and I'm going to take my grandson and see what we can get trapped. We can both learn at the same time. Good times! (if my wife doesn't kill me for ordering all this stuff - naw, I'll blame it on the grandson!)

not familiar with fur that far south but should be prime as it's going to get. With the current fur prices I wouldn't expect much though, fur from the northern part of the country is not all that great, that far south probably be hard to sell other than the occasional numbero uno primo that shows up just about anywhere. Cats may do better though. Be a good oppurtunity to inspect the fur, (buyers judge the short dense underfur) and learn what it looks like, then when you get the oppurtunity compare it to the fur from animals further north.

That will depend on how your going to sell them and what the buyer prefers/requires.
Check the interweb for fur handling techniques, most want them stretched and dried.
