coyote trapping

Can anybody recommend a good DVD or book on trapping coyotes. I'm interested in trapping to supplement hunting them. TIA.

Re: coyote trapping

Get yourself about 12 leg hold traps suitable for coyote. Get a metal milk crate and cut a piece of plywood to make a bottom. Drill a 1/2 inch hole in the center of the plywood bottom. Get a 4" X 1/2" lag screw and a couple washers. I drill holes along one edge of the plywood so I can use nylon wire wraps to hold the plywood bottom on the metal milk crate.

Go to a area known to hold coyotes and find a good fence post about 5 feet tall. Put the lag screw through the hole in the plywood and tighten it down on the top of the fence post.

Take a shevel and dig up the ground around the fence post in a circle about 3 feet out up to the post. Break up the soil so you can hide the traps, chains and stakes.

You will need to obtain a domestic house cat, from where ever. Put the cat inside the metal milk crate and ti'rap it closed with the cat inside. Put coyote pee, fox pee or bobcat pee around the post. The set the traps arround the post about 3 feet out from the post.

Be carefull with your sent control. You will have to feed and water the cat daily as you check your traps.

If you have any coyotes within a mile or two you will catch them. The cat will call them up every time. The coyotes cant resist a little pussy for dinner. If you want to catch coyotes unhurt and alive, make a box trap with a compartment for the cat.

Re: coyote trapping

Ok I would forget the whole playwood with the cat idea and trying to get many coyotes to go into a cage trap unless your building them really big, forget it!

I would recommend you get some decent coyote traps! Bridger or montanas are good traps! Good videos are numerous I would get those that best fit the terrain and area in which you trap! Good books Ogormans,Russ Carmens, Tom Mirandas coyote trapping also very good, Bodas coyote book as very good.

Learn the basic sets dirthole, flat sets and walk through flat sets and buy good lure and bait! Find good coyote travel routes and use the wind to carry your lure or bait to the coyotes nose and I wouldn't go with trap treatment that you need to mix with gas type things! Good ol logwood dye and wax. File your pans with a good trigger and run pan tension. Make sure you bed your traps rock solid and use enough covering for wind conditions. Good luck
