How much hay do you use at each set? I been using 2 slices but sure seems like alot. Should i go with less?

Beside urine what other good lures work best with this set?

I don't use much at all. I put enough on just to cover the trap, but still enough to grab the coyote's attention.


2010-2011 totals:

coon: 12
beaver: 0
muskrat: 2
opossum: 1
misses: too many LOL

Can somone explain the hay set?
Is it good for any area, do you put hay under the trap too for when its freezing?

Does it have to be in a place where the animals are used to farms and such or can you introduce it to any area you want to trap?

that is all i have out rite now with 10 " under it and they are calling for 3 more tonite
the way i set them up i kick back the snow but leave about 3 " then stake the traps down and use wax paper under the trap and embed the traps flush with the snow making sure no snow is on the trap take about half a flake of straw fluf it up but not apart and stand it up over the steak add lures and lightly cover traps. i normaly drive around the treeline and set the set inbetween my tire tracks.

BigD you can use wax paper..but I normally just put some of the hay under my trap and then gently cover the trap up with hay as well. It seems to be faster that way for me IMO
