what are the tracks telling you? Are they investigating the sets? Are you getting sprung traps with no catch? Are they rolling on the traps? Or are they not even coming in to investigate?

Not even comin to investigate! I've done every kind of set you could think of! They harass my dogs.. Found a dead rooster out at my woods and behind my woods is a dairy farm, they've had several calves killed, and dog pretty torn up and at my old house ( in the same section as this) my rat terrier was killed and my lab really torn up. They're obviously there. They run one my atv trails and along the woods in the field there's about 3 of them out there from what I've seen on trail cam

Trevor,

Could say many things here and someone will agree, someone will disagree. When I first learned to connect with coyote (after working on other species)
it was all about two primary things.

1) Location of your sets

2) What you do at the set (odor issues, lure/bait/urine, wind direction, set type, etc...)

You can do some things poorly and still catch some coyotes but trying to be on target
and catch all of those passing your area is more difficult.

If you aren't even getting them investigating as you put it, are they within a few feet, 20 or more feet or hundred yards or more?

If you see them on the trail cam and you see their tracks on your trails you should be able to be on location
where they are moving through which takes the "location" factor down a bit.

However the smaller location ie. corner of a trail, slight rise in terrain or drop, etc... places that might funnel, are still important
if not more important than just being along the trail.

Decision on what lure/bait/set type etc... are all very very important, again you might grab one or two in something thrown in
but bedding your traps solid, having a set that gets them looking and committing is also part of it.

Anyway, I'll leave it for others to smooth out my rough spots, but you get the jist, tell us how far off the coyotes are from your current
sets and are they breaking stride or just passing on through.

Go out after a fresh snow and follow them. Look for a funnel to hang a snare.

Can you shoot on the property? If so call them in and use some 3" number four buck or a rifle.

this is the "easy " way yote tracks are on deer trails here this is best done only certain times of the year here fences (crawl unders) and dry ditches in pea fields rock too

We shoot a lot of coyotes on the property at least 1-2 every year- small woods, but I'll set on the trails basically, off the trails but kinda close ill do blind sets everything when there is tracks it seems like they walk by and don't pay any attn to it

Try urine post sets on their travel ways. They usually can't resist lifting their leg to establish territory!

I had a logging road on a property last year that I was trapping that the coyotes would come through about once every 8-10 days. At one point I had 14 sets along the road and still nothing. I soon figured out where they where headed. It was a large property full of waist high weeds and grasses, bare spots in the fields were loaded with tracks and scat and there were loads of field rats and rabbit sign. I set on that location and nailed them. That spot wasn't a half a mile from that logging road. I about tore my hair out on that road.

I think that will work. That is the one set I did t try. Uhh how should I do it? What kind of urine? Where do I get it? Today after the snow I went out on the sled, as I was checking a coon trap I found some tracks i followed them to a smaller tree and it had peed on it. It got me thinking!

We had a heifer die today, I'm bringing it out to the woods. We have a steep walled hole thing in the middle. I was also gonna plan on just let them find it and wait a while and just trap the heck outta it. Snares and everything! Btw the heifer weighs around 900 pounds so I'm sure they'll get a whiff of it cause she was in heat and bleeding when she died.. We think she might of broke something inside when she jumped the fence and the bull jumped her.shes a rank one!

Fox and coyote urine is usually available at trap supply dealers. If you absolutely can't find any take your dog for a walk and borrow some from him where he sprinkles.

If you have a house cat try using some of the "used" litter from the litter box, although it might be too subtle for your particular situation. Good luck with the heifer. You can't beat that kind of bait. Go heavy on the snares and good luck.

We just set up a job for a local municipality and it took 5 nights (6 traps) to catch the first one. I first alternated between coyote and fox urine and gland lure, but I didn't use any bait. After no luck I used Cavens Hiawatha Valley Predator bait. Nailed a nice male the next morning.

Of course it could be that the yotes decided to hunt that particular area the night I changed attractants.

I like to use a strong call lure like Night Owl Crossbones or O'Gorman's LDC lure in conjunction with a good predator bait in a dirt hole set. Another trick that seems to work well for me is to add a large bone or skull at the set for a visual attractant.
