Do you think I could catch a coyote in this if I camouflaged it enough?

I would say so but I donít really trap coyotes but I know you can catch bobcats like that

Iíve heard they avoid cages, but Iíve never tried them. I know that coyotes donít like to be forced into something, like when you have too many foot guides at a dirt hole. I would try it and find out.

My dad says they avoid cages, but I have caught fox in a cage, and many bobcats in cages.

Seems awful short. Maybe a pup, if I was an adult 35lb+ yote I wouldn't try and squeeze in there.

The cage is probably big enough,but yotes are much harder to get into one,than a fox or bobcat.
Experimentation is how you get answers,try and see.And good luck.
If my feet aren't wet,I must not be trapping.

I would say yes if one walked in it but i just dont think that would happen. Coyotes are almost impossible to cage from what i hear

Yep thats what I think too. My uncle built it a couple years back, and I keep telling him that it's not going to catch a coyote, that they will spook. He still sets it. He does catch some coon in it though.
