Hi guys, haven't been able to trap all season but finally have time now for the last 20 days of the season... I'm a water trapper but this late in the season we can only snare beaver and yotes, so i want to give the K9 snaring a go. A couple days ago I read an article in a Fur Harvesters magazine about running a figure 8 snow shoe line a few miles long and setting snares along the trail (the author was referring to trapping in my Province too). So I geared up today and bush whacked a 4 KM long figure 8 trail in an area that I believe to be frequented by coyotes. Throughout my travels I never noticed a single yote track, just rabbits...BUT we also just got 2 feet of snow last night.

Is this a good plan for yotes or am I just wasting my time....I feel like I'm just walking in the dark here? Should I maybe get a lure to put out along my line? Haven't set any snares yet but took dam near half a day to make that line.. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Iíve never tried that for yotes but I catch lynx on snow shoe spur trails. I make bait piles for yotes and set on their trails.
