Re: Baiting coyotes
I've been baiting yotes for a few years now with some success. The best being a bait behind my house with a motion sensor on it that wakes me up when something is on the bait, (you should try this, your wife will LOVE it!!!)
I think your distance is good, we tried baits at 100- 150 yards and the little @#$%@$# would wind us. When we moved out to 300 yards we would see them crossing the road at 200 yards with their noses up. I find here in Maine deer works best and beaver caracas work great too. If you are hunting in the cold you can freeze bait in water in a 5gal bucket, they cant drag it off and the bird damage will be down a bit, friggen birds eat a lot!. Last year we tried plowing our bait into a snowbank, that worked good too, again the dogs have to work for the bait and cant drag it off into the bushes, keeps them in front of you longer.
Let me know how you do, I like to hear about people putting coyotes through obedience training.... Lay down!!!! Stay..... Good boy....
