Hey Wolfdog. Thanks for the video. Impressive. How much chain do you have on it and could you show a video of how your drag leaves marks in bare ground or dirt road?

I see when a coyote moved them in wy it was when they fought it in a circle, then it pops loose when it is pulled the opposite direction as where it sank into the clay.
Several hookups and moving through grass could fill hook with grass, seen it in wy with ogormans drag, best designed one I know of

Thanks WD! I thought your video was going to be testing your drag by hooking it up to your dog!

i have to rember to dohat back when im at the house ! Ill tell you in good dirt depending on the animal you wi get a good trail. Thats one of my fox drags in the video. A grey red or coon would leave a good trail in most soils like farm land. How ever i can says he same if i hooked a yote to it. Now in backed red clay you will get a good scratch but until it gets a good hook its not realy gonna plow. Still working on some more that work better in hard tground though

It was or same type, the prongs we're about same length, sharp enough to draw blood sometimes, his have anti hitch loop on the back of the prongs, which will prevent a wrap around

The problem is a coyote doesn't just pull from One direction. When that coyote does a 180 that drag Is going to come loose. Sure It may hang up again but the same thing Is going to happen when the coyote does a 180.

I don't know but soon as a coyote gets hung up he starts to do the radius thing and when he gets to the 180 point he's free to run. And If that hook does a few bounces he can go a fair ways before he hooks up again. Lots of things can go wrong when your In NO entanglement situations when using drags.

Wolfdog91, how has your drag performed on coyotes in cattle pastures? In your experience, how far do they get from the original set with this drag in cattle pastures with no entanglement and what kind of "catch circle" do you see?

I usde allot of drags. 8 foot chain. I am out west. I use drags where there is no scrub, no sod and nothing. I stole this photo from the internet as it represents clearly my country.



Bottomline if you put the correct length of chain the drag will work. No different than rigging a boat anchor correctly. Often it may take a 100 yrds or for the drag to tire down the yote. I asked Andy Weiser at the National Convention about chain length and he and I agree that for our terrain 8 feet of chain works well. I belive O'rgorman uses the same.

Wolfdog I don't know the weight of your drag but if its close to 2 pounds, it will work.

BTW Beav, yotes seldom will double back, unless they are hooked up in lets say some plum thicket. In the open they may go left or right but I have never had one come back towards the set location.

Ill also say this, drags work well when trapping close to roads. Which contain some ideal set locations but the fear of getting your rig stolen and a yote is real. So use a drag and let the yote hide itself. I will caution you though, youll save allot of time if you combine a dog on the line when you use drags. Even in my country, yotes hunker down and can hide in front of a poke plant and you'll never see them till your right on them.

I carry 50 traps rigged with drags and if I get a freeze thaw situation, Ill use them all.

Wolfdog...I make make a few like yours and give them a try this season, they look heavy and heavy is good.

Larry
