Just curious why you 'thought' it was a male ?

But yes, marking it's territory....and a specific point of interest!

Thanks Grey, I thought this was possibly the case. My next question and I guess I'll find out is will he investigate my set now enough for a catch or do I pick a fight ie gland lure or urine at this sets backing. I think I will wait a while and then if no more action I will transplant a turd from another critter near the backing and hit the backing with some pee. I will keep you posted.

That would be the way I would do it. That canine is "marking" it's territory and by YOU doing it right beside it will sure draw a lot of interest, next time through...

Just be sure to go UPWIND from the place it left it's mark and blend in the trap well. Never hurts to AGE a set of this nature, although leave the droppings fresh.

Still finding a good many solid grass droppings in late November.

Wonder why that is...

Here's one that is 'coughed up', so it isn't a dropping.

Dropping on a trail up 8" high off the ground on a grass tuff.
Was that done so 'everyone' would see it ?

Drew,

In general, around here, 'cat scat differs from canine (foxes, of any type, are rare here) in that 'cat scat is "pinched" (or "twisted") at one end.

"Aging a set" is done by using a mist sprayer,( I use the gallon size) and spraying an entire set with a light mist of water. The sun will dry this forming a light crust, thus aging the set!

or so 'everyone' would smell it. The smell will potentially carry further. The other side to this could be 'look at how big I am - I can turd right up high so I am dominant'

i tend to beleive that eating grass is for two reasons 1 to induce vomiting on an upset stomach and two to try to get rid of worms.

what are your thaughts?


There i said it....

Alpine hunter, that makes me think about a few things, such as , if it fact it wasn't an Alpha that scent marks that way...

How about 5' (five feet) off the ground? Please see my post & video links under "Scat ID" I'd value your imput, and I like your Socratic writing style.
