I have recently started trying to catch summer yotes. WOW. I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I've only caught 4 in 2 weeks. Itried dirt hole sets, flat sets, trench sets, bone sets and nothing works. They all are either left completely alone or just dug up. The 4 I have caught I've caught with snares on drainage ditches on a fish farm but its been a week since I've caught anything. I really need some advice.

4 off the same place in June? What's the problem unless it's way more acreage than i'm thinking.
According to what the layout is like, that isn't too bad at all

You need to change your methods summertime trappin isnt fur trappin as you have figured out.You need to take advantage of their instincts more this time of year.They dont readily come to lures now that you would use in the fall.Im sure others will chime in and help ya along as well.
LT. where you at???
Myself I prefer snares this time of year ya just gotta change gears a little and youll catchem if they are there.

Nah two off the same place and two off another place. The first farm is 200 acers surrounded by a few thousand acers of grain farms and the other is about 500 acers surrounded by the same several thousand acres of grain farms. This past winter I was catching 10 to 12 a week but I know they are harder to catch in summer. This is the first summer I've ever tried. I've trapped winter for a long time so its new to me

I don.t really trap for fur any way. I trap live only to sell live. I make more that way. I was just wondering if the home range changes in summer. Do they stay closer to the den? Its really hot here. About 100 degrees everyday.

yes, homeranges are tight right now. That's why i say 4 off one location is a pretty decent catch. Not uncommon for a location now to pick up 1 or 2 then go dead until pups start coming out more. I recently removed coyotes for an exotic animal breeder. Picked up 6 there within 400 yds of each other. But notice the appeal that this place has. Picked up 2 in three days, then it went dead for nearly 3 wks before the others showed up. There is a lesson in that if you think about it.

Urine post sets will take a lot of coyotes any time of the year. It's a territorial thing.

Man made, blackened(burnt) posts will work. Aged urine is fine. It is best to have a point of interest in close proximity to the post however. This can be anything from a dead skunk, cow head etc. to ripe lure poured on the ground. Be sure to wear rubber boots and gloves to avoid perspiration odors at the set in warm weather.

rubber boots and gloves in 100 degree heat will make you sweat even more.....

yeah, but at least it won't drip onto the set which as you must know is crucial to success. Spend as little perspiring time as possible at the proposed capture location!

What is it like for water sources in your area. In summer time where I'm from most water sources are dried up and limits the places where coyotes can get water. I would try checking out water sources for coyote sign.

IMO, if you are worried about human scent that much, it shows where you are in your coyote knowledge.
How do you POSSIBLY think the trappers out west who trap coyotes year round do it in 90-100 degree heat ?
Think they never sweat ?
Sure they do and they catch coyotes right through it all !!!

Yes LT, but they would likely catch more coyotes if they minimized their odor at the set whenever possible. By the way, I'm quite satisfied with the knowledge gained through 50 years of coyote trapping, the numbers have added up very significantly! Now I will turn the other cheek and you can insult me again if you like.
