Hi All,
For the last few years i've dabbled in trapping down at my ranch in Zapata county. I have only used snares on fence crawls and i've done pretty well catching bobcats and coyotes. This year I branched out and decided to try my hand at foot hold traps. I bought 6 Bridger #2's Full Modified and 6 MB 550's all offset. I put chain ends and super stakes on all. This weekend i took them down and made 8 dirthole sets. I ended up catching 5 raccoons on dirtholes and 5 coyotes on snares. My question is why i only caught raccoons in my dirthole sets? I used Milligans Predator chunk bait with sheeps wool down the hole with coyote urine and Hawbakers Wildcat#1 glade lure on the backing. Any advice on baits or lures would be greatly appreciated.
