the scat being the "lure" so to speak?
What makes them come?

(From what I understand, the dirt hole sets you set bait/lure which attracts them).

What makes them come to the flat set?

Dirt holes are like small rat hole or bigger. Then but the bait in front of it.

I snare a lot of yotes, is there anyway to preserve urine from those yotes? for foot hold sets in areas snares won't work? And what's the shelf life of fresh urine for sets?

If you keep it in a glass jar. Like in a barn or somewhere out of the sun it will last a long time. I'm working on a cage to have my cat an catch the urine

2 more yesterday. One I didn't get a pic of he wasn't caught as good as I like but this one was. Both were in the goats pasture. That makes 12 in the last month or so.

I assume that's on a drag. Do you use a dog to trail them up or just do it by sight?

No sir I use to use dogs. But now I just follow the marks in the dirt. I make my drags heavy an make sure they leave marks. An most of the time they don't get far. I use 90% drags on my line

I have 6 drags but all I ever end up doing is wrapping them around a tree beforehand. I have never bedded a drag in the trap bed.

Same. I use them in sandy loam. In the gumbo/clay I try to set close to a tree to tie off to with a long chain.
I have drag chains that are 10 feet long, but like I said in the above post, I don't use the drags as drags.

I like to be able to use a stake or a longer chain on any trap and not have to fool with the j hooks, having to open and close them.

I would be shocked if a coyote opened up a j hook.
I read that wolves can and do, but there's a UUUge difference.
I'm about to go down to Hacienda del Brute Killer. I sacked up a bunch of our dogs' droppings and will try that method. Also tighten up pan tension.
Hopefully I can post up some catches. And I'm going to try calling too.

Just take the whole dog, let him wander around and sniff and pee while your getting your set ready, it gets the alpha pair fired up this time of year.

We have a pair of dachshunds. I think they get lost in the dirt clods and Tall Grass.

I have five coyote sets in so far this evening and two dog proof sets. Some of the coyotes sets with bait and lure some with droppings and urine.
Putting in more now. Hoping to have some dancing dogs in the morning.

Them mb's are pretty awesome, the only trap that held a deer long enough for her to beat the tree down to toothpick pile, but she was gone when I got there. For those that are wondering, it was the first deer I'd caught in about 10 yrs, and I knew better than to set at that saltbrush bush, it's a major late winter food source out here.

That's a lil aggravating isn't it but it sure teaches you more on trap placement. I had an old man tell me he learns more from misses then catches

Hey I talked to this guy a few days ago. I used to sale to Tommy King and this guy. Tommy always wanted coyotes, this guys does not. He only wants bobcats and fox this year. Fox will be pretty cheap also. There is no market for coyotes this year. It hasn't been cold enough long enough to bring the thick fur. He said "nah don't bring em just throw them in the dumpster"

You know that's what sad I'd like to get a lil bit from then you know. But I understand they aren't worth much but man that sucks when they don't bring nothing almost feels like a waste. I don't think Tommy king is even in buissness right now is he
